Youth Camp Parking Fundraiser

The La Jolla Art & Wine Festival is happening next weekend. Due to the popularity of the festival, parking in downtown La Jolla is scarce. The Youth Ministry will be opening our parking garage to the community on Friday and Saturday, asking guests for a suggested donation of $20. All proceeds from this parking garage fundraiser will help keep our student ministry bus transportation costs to camps affordable! Abe and Sophie are looking for volunteers to help welcome cars into the garage and clean up. Sign up at ljpres.org/parking

New Member Class

The Next New Member class is October 14th from 9-11:30am. The goal of this class is to encourage you in your life of faith in Christ, motivate you to full devotion to Christ, and invite you to become an active member of the La Jolla Pres family. This class will focus on more of who we are, how we are structured, and how you can be a part of our church family.

Women's 1-Day is Approaching

Jesus says that we are either a citizen of this world, with our values and beliefs influenced by our culture, or we are a citizen of heaven, with our values and beliefs guided by God’s word. This year, we are going to explore how our citizenship in heaven changes our identity, our actions, and our inheritance. Come learn and grow with us!
