Pastor Mark went on a hike last month with no goal but to turn around before he ran out of water.

Mt San Jacinto

Keep at it! What you do matters. From time to time you may need to take a break to stay refreshed. But stay with it. The good you do can produce helpful results centuries from now.

About La Jolla Lutheran Church

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. We have a great Sunday School that meets during worship (starting right after the children's message).

Our main service is at 9:30 a.m. It is followed by coffee at 10:45.

We are developing a new small group worship service. It starts at 11:11 a.m. If you're the kind of person who likes seeing new beginnings, join us as we experiment with this service before its official opening later this year. We'll have some great contemporary worship in a comfortable, informal setting.

Pastor Mark is the author of How to Pray for Healing (and what to do if nothing happens). His messages on Sunday will help you understand the Bible and your part in God's great plan to renew creation.

We just finished a great series on Esther.

Earlier this year we looked at the prayer Jesus taught his followers.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.

February 18: Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven.

February 25: Give us this day our daily bread.

March 4: Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.

March 11: Save us from the time of trial.

March 18: Deliver us from evil.

March 25: For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and forever.

Other recent messages:
If you're stuck, fast and pray

Jesus said there are some situations that can't be healed until someone fasts and prays.

It's helpful to fast and pray for the world, asking that God’s kingdom come and God’s will be one, on earth as in heaven.

On earth as in heaven

Jesus taught his followers to pray, "God, let your kingdom come and your will be done on earth as in heaven." Then he taught his followers what they could do to help.

It's time for us to get more practice bringing God's kingdom to earth!

A non-parallel universe

God's kingdom has completely different values from those of most people and nations. Many of the things individuals highly value won't last past our lifetimes.
