Welcome to Christmas at Lake! This season, we hope that you will be able to join us on an Advent journey that will take us through the end of the year. We have resources for you to pick up that will help guide you and your family as you seek to experience the joy, wonder, and celebration of Christ's coming down to earth. This year we are offering our own LAC-Family created Advent_Guide-2022_11-11-22-web.pdf titled “Before the Beginning” in our Worship Center Lobby beginning Sunday, November 13.  You can also follow us for weekly updates as well as information about upcoming events and opportunities on Facebook and Instagram. Weekend Sermon Highlights, inspirational messages, and images of celebration will be shared as we capture moments throughout the season.

Advent Teaching Series

“Before the Beginning:
The Story of Christ before Christmas

Before the Beginning Advent SeriesAs we begin a new chapter at Lake under the pastoral leadership of Dr. Mathew P. John, we hope and pray that many of the familiar experiences that help Christmas come alive have returned to your homes, your schools, and your community. We also hope that you will be able to make time and invite friends and family to Advent and Christmas at Lake with all the opportunities for fellowship and worship that the season has to offer.

Our Advent 2022 teaching series “Before the Beginning” will come from the book of John and will begin the last Sunday of November all the way through Christmas Sunday, December 25, 2022. Pastor Mathew and special guests will bring us the good news of God’s love revealed in Jesus’ birth.

We hope that this season will provide you opportunities to celebrate our hope, Emmanuel, as a church family and the larger community of believers in Pasadena and around the world. Join us at 9:30 am on Sundays this Christmas season and into the new year.
