An Invitation from Our Pastor

The church is the basic religious institution in the community. Its message is one of hope for the individual and the world. The church is not merely one more organization in a world beset with organizations. From age to age it towers in the community as the supreme symbol of dignity of human life. It is a fellowship reaching across the centuries and around the world. The church is founded upon the conviction of the reality of God and the relevance of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Its enduring power through world-shaking transitions testifies to its strength and importance. It turns our thoughts to God and the needs of others. It is a guide to the true, enduring and foundational values of life.

For over 50 years, Community Church of Leisure World has lived and served, taking a noteworthy place in the family of churches in Leisure World. Our church’s beginnings and development have been closely related to the development of Leisure World. Across the years its ministry has touched thousands of lives. I hope that you will consider joining us for worship at 9:50 am on Sunday
morning!

Jeannie Braun

Treasurer

Jeannie is a new member of our staff and also a new resident of Leisure World. She was born in Oneida New York and is a third generation resident in the Leisure World Community. Growing up her family moved a lot around the country but settled in Fountain Valley where Jeannie graduated high school and attended Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa with a degree in business. She is still working and has spent now over 25 years in the mortgage and finance industry. After visiting the Leisure World Community church she decided right away to become a member of our choir and when the vacancy became available for a treasurer she volunteered wanting to serve the church more. Jeannie enjoys spending time with her dog Kaylie on long walks, reading and considers herself a student of the bible enjoying as much time as she can reading and understanding the wonderful word of God hoping to teach in the future as well as participate in our missions team.

She is the middle child of four with a brother and two sisters all living in California but spread out in Bakersfield, Long Beach and Colton.

Jeannie is looking forward to a long time serving here in Leisure World and in Leisure World Community Church.
