While we are closed during the COVID-19 pandemic and have ceased in person worship for the time being, we are still gathering our hearts and minds for worship as a church. Each week our staff produces and emails an at-home worship packet with words, art, and music. You can find previous weeks’ worship packets here. You can email office@lajollaucc.org to request to be added to the weekly email list to receive these in your inbox.

If you have pastoral requests or concerns please email pastor@lajollaucc.org

Hello CCLJ Family (and Friends far and wide):

We are still very much a functioning, living, breathing church. This is evidence of that. We are doing something that has never been done in the history of our church.

Below you will find a Weekly worship kit. During these weeks of at home worship we will be reflecting on what this means. Can we be significant staying at home? What does it mean to contend with illness? With an infirm world? Can we change the world from our own homes? Let’s explore these questions together by looking to the past and looking to our sacred scriptures.

Please open the at home worship guide below by clicking on it. It should open with ease. Start on page one and read through the guide.  There are four audio files that you will see below as well. Don’t listen to the audio files until the guide instructs you to. They are listed clearly as “Audio File 1,” “Audio File 2,” “Audio File 3,” and “Audio File 4.” This is to make this as simple as possible. Keep the guide open as you work through the worship guide so that you can easily access the audio files when necessary.  When instructed by the guide to listen to an audio file, simply click on the audio file that the guide instructs you to.

Also, please read all the way through the worship guide. Your staff put in an incredible amount of time in getting this together for you. There is a fun homework assignment too. We ask that you to send us a photo. This can be a selfie of you at home today, or a photo of the place you choose to worship, or a photo of something that is currently inspiring you. When we come back together we will use these photos in a special way.

With grace,

Rev. Tim Seery, Minister

Dr. Nina Gilbert, Music Director

Hi CCLJ,

As I mentioned to you in a previous correspondence, in-person worship is moving virtual this week out of caution for our community after several church members were exposed to a Covid case. We will be joining together next Sunday Dec 5 for worship together in our sanctuary.

Nina, Bronwyn, and I spent a lot of time thinking about how we could possibly create something captivating now that you have had a taste of worship back in the sanctuary. I take seriously the responsibility to deliver everyone a fresh, good, and sacred experience. We have certainly been on a journey together this year and tried many new things.

What we put together this week is a video that replicates our in-person church service as much as a video possibly could. I hope you enjoy it. Nothing replicates being together physically in our beautiful space, but this comes close.

With grace,

Rev. Tim
