About La Jolla Lutheran Church

Improve your life. Learn about Jesus and discover what the Bible says.

Pastor Mark's messages will give you something to think about each week. His clear teaching on the Bible will help you apply it to your life.

Our mission statement is simple: We follow Jesus. When you arrive, you'll find kids, parents, and grandparents, all worshiping together in one extended family.

The church building is closed because of the coronavirus. Once public worship resumes, our worship service will be at 9:30 a.m. From September through June, kids are invited to be in the worship service for part of the time with us and then to go to Sunday School after the children's message. In July and August, kids are part of the whole worship experience. (A nursery is provided for kids under three.) Worship is followed by coffee at 10:45 and Bible Study at 11:05.

Pastor Mark is the author of How to Pray for Healing (and what to do if nothing happens).
