Sundays are just the beginning



Small Groups

Looking to connect and make friends? Join a Dinner & Discussion group! Each group of 6-10 people meets for dinner once a month. We discuss a topic, grow our faith, and connect in fellowship. 

United Women in Faith

The purpose of UWF is to develop a creative, supportive fellowship and focus on mission outreach, especially as it relates to women and children. Various fund-raising events are held throughout the year to raise money for a variety of mission projects selected by the group. In recent years, they have included Africa University, David and Margaret Home for Girls, Family Assistance Ministries and Laguna Beach Friendship Shelter. UWF holds meetings and book discussions every month.

Our Music Ministry provides an avenue through which all may share their gifts and be an integral part of the worship experience.


Our Chancel Choir presents a weekly anthem and leads the congregation in musical responses. They rehearse every Wednesday night at 7:00PM from late August through June and on Sundays prior to worship. Our musicians in the Chancel Choir range from first-time singers to professional singers. Prior musical experience is not necessary. All that is required is a desire to worship and sing as a team.

Our praise team, small groups, and soloists participate by audition only. Click "learn more" to get in touch with our music team.

Sunday School

We believe that the future begins with our children. After Children’s Time, during our Sunday service, children through 5th grade may leave the worship service to attend. All employees and volunteers have been screened and educated in the Safe Sanctuaries program.

Messy Church

Messy Church in an all-age fresh expression of church that offers counter-cultural transformation of family life through families coming together to be, to make, and to celebrate God. Messy church is a form of church for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration, and hospitality. Messy church happens once a month at LBUMC where people from 3-93 explore spiritual concepts through hands on activities based on the Bible.
