Sunday Gatherings

Sunday Gatherings

September 27 | 10:15 am | 50th Anniversary Live Stream!

 

October 4 Onward | 10:15 am | We are back in the building and Online!

You must register for EACH Sunday you wish to attend in-person.  We are limiting the reservation system to 100 people per Sunday (not including children who will be in the other building). If a Sunday is full, please register for another one. Please only register for the Sundays you know you for sure will be attending. You can access our online reservation system here.

 

Also, please be aware of the following restrictions that are in place for Sunday gatherings:

  • Temperature Check – Before entering the Worship Center, your temperature will be checked with a “thermometer gun”.  Anyone with a temperature over 100.4 will not be able to enter.
  • Facemasks – Masks must be worn at all times while inside including while singing. A limited number of facemasks will be available if you forget yours. For those on stage speaking or leading, masks will not be required. However, a 10-foot “no-sit-zone” will be established in front of the stage to ensure no one sits near anyone on stage who isn’t wearing a mask.
  • Children – For children ages 4 years – 5th Grade, Coach John will have activities available for them in the Ministry Center Building. Children will be in the Ministry Center the entire time and won’t count towards the “100 Maximum”.  Children will also have their temperatures checked and will need facemasks (those 5 and up).  Parents please drop your children off at the East M inistry Center doors (172nd Ave side) and pick them up from the West Ministry Center Doors (between the buildings). Parents with children younger than 4 are welcome to attend church with their child sitting with them.
  • Entrance – Everyone will enter the Worship Center through the Fellowship Hall. There will only be one entrance into the Worship Center where your temperature will be checked and to ensure you have a mask. All other entrances will be locked. Parents: after you drop your kids at the Ministry Center, please walk around the Ministry Center building into the Fellowship Hall. For the safety of the childr en, no adults (besides Kids Ministry Volunteers) are allowed in the Ministry Center.
  • Seating – To reduce contact points, chairs will not be pre-setup. Instead, each person who enters will grab a chair and set it up inside the Worship Center. Please be mindful to not set up chairs within six feet of another group of people.  Family members may set up chairs and sit next to each other. When the service is done, please stack and put away your chair.
  • Social Distancing – Please be respectful of others by staying six feet away while chatting before or after service.  Resist the urge to hug and instead implement social distance greetings such as an “elbow bump”.

 

 

 

Bible Study

Revelation | 16 Weeks

Taught by John Wecks

 

In these uncertain times, be encouraged to work harder for the King every single day of your life. The revelation of Jesus Christ shows His glorious power to judge all the evil in God’s universe that makes life miserable for all of us today. Explore heaven’s worship themes with us. Learn the extent of God’s grace to protect His people from the devastating judgments God will pour out on those who shake their fist at God and His Son, Jesus Christ. Gain a clearer understanding of the overall plan of God for our world, the earth, and the universe. Learn what our priorities should be as we live today in our broken world filled with hurting people. Strengthen your confident expectation in what the Lord will do to make everything right.

Daniel | 12 Weeks

Taught by John Wecks

 

Relax! God’s got this! He’s in charge of everything all the time including every single election to government offices whether by mail, by absentee ballot, or whatever means in whatever country. In this book we will thrill over the fact that God’s unwavering promises always come through in the smallest detail for the whole world and our own lives. We learn how to thrive in enemy territory. We will watch what happens when we trust the Lord in impossible situations. We will learn from Daniel, “a man highly esteemed by God” (9:23).

Small Groups

Small Groups

Laurelwood Small Groups exist to support the mission of our church: Following Jesus Together. Groups gather* at regular intervals for fellowship, prayer, and group learning. Between gatherings, group leaders and members care for one another and encourage each other to grow as followers of Jesus.

 

* Due to COVID, each group’s gathering is unique to the demographics of its members. Some groups are meeting in person, others via virtual platforms, and some by a hybrid of the two. Other groups are continuing to care and pray for each other while they wait for conditions to improve and allow in-person gatherings to continue.

 

We invite you to Sign Up if you are not already part of a Small Group.

Children

The Children’s Ministry is excited to announce that we are now posting weekly videos designed to engage with kids and keep them grounded in God’s Word while we wait to get back together.  We hope to post new videos every Tuesday and hope to make this a routine for the coming months.  The current topic for August is, “How to Deal with Difficulties” and a new series will start in September.  We invite parents to watch these videos with their kids and encourage you to discuss the topics with them.  We hope these videos help you as you lead your kids in their walk with God.

 

Week 1

by Steve Lantz
Peter had a very big problem to deal with – probably a bigger problem than any of us will ever have to face.  So how was Peter rescued from his problem?  The answer may surprise you.  In fact, Peter didn’t do anything!  Find out how Peter was rescued and how you can rescue others too! 

Week 2

by Steve Lantz
In this week’s video we talk about how Paul responded to some really big troubles in his life.  Did he het upset or angry or mad at God?  Watch and find out!

Week 3

by Coach John
In life, we are given freedom. And sometimes in that freedom, we make bad choices, and we sin. And when we do, that leads to some serious consequences. Listen to what happens with a lady who was caught in sin, and how God came to the rescue.

 

Week 4

by Coach John
In our series on Bible characters and how they dealt with difficulties, come see how Moses dealt with an unexpected problem AFTER the children of Israel were saved from Pharaoh. This video is sure to be a “Splash” hit for those kids who watch to the end!

Week 5

by Steve Lantz
The Bible says something very strange.  It says we need to taste God and see that He is good – even when other bad things may be going on around us.  But how do you taste God?  And if you taste Him will He really taste good?  The only way is to try it and find out.
