Our heart is to equip women in all seasons of life to know encouragement, friendship, and sound teaching that points to the true source of hope – Jesus Christ. 


Is there a place for me? If that is the question behind your visit here today…simple answer, yes.

We are a smaller, community church, literally in a neighborhood of La Mirada surrounded by homes – filled with young families, singles, couples, retired women, widowed – we really have a beautiful community of women from every season.

Yes, there is a place for you here, and no matter your background or where you dream of being in the years ahead – we are here together to love in Jesus name and grow together.

Bible Study – the heart and priority of our community – We love knowing God because from there we can have the wisdom, peace, and strength we need in our lives. Our Bible study is open to the community and women from different churches – or no church at all – attend in person and even online. A life fulfilled begins in Knowing God. The Dwelling Richly study is where we start.

Summer Grace Groups

While the Dwelling Richly Bible study is on break through August women are gathering in groups of 2, 3, or 4 to dwell in the Word, share and encourage one another. You can join one of these Grace Groups today.
The purpose of the Summer Grace Groups is to have a simple way to stay in the Word and have accountability with others.
Each group decides what they’ll do, for example:
  • Read a Proverb a day
  • Read a Psalm a day
  • Read a book of the Bible like 1 John, Esther, Luke, etc.
  • Complete a Dwelling Richly study together like James, Esther, Ruth, Romans, etc
Then each group decides how to encourage and keep accountable, for example:
  • text one another every day
  • meet up to talk about what you’re learning
  • call or video chat and share

Meet our Women’s Pastor

Jennifer has been with LMC family since 2001. She’s a published author and illustrator and has produced two albums of original Scripture-based worship music. She began as an educator in the community teaching elementary-high school and directing summer day camps for kids.
“Have fun – learn a ton!” – that’s Jennifer’s motto in her teaching and ministry.

Jennifer was called to La Mirada Church to serve as our Women and Children’s pastor in 2016 and was ordained by the elders in 2022. With her background in music she helps lead worship and loves creating prayerful and worshipful events for our church family. She supports the  church’s graphic arts and web design needs and enjoys creating in that way and using God’s gifts to bless the church’s outreach.

Her heart is that women would be firm in their Christian faith by having a passion for being with the Lord through prayer and Bible study. Jennifer speaks at women’s events, churches, and retreats, bringing a message of hope and pointing women to Jesus as their Savior. She writes and teaches our Dwelling Richly Bible studies which move thoughtfully verse-by-verse through the Bible.

Jennifer and her husband, Glen, have been married since 1988 and are the proud parents of their grown son, Jonathan. They enjoy this empty nest season and love their ministry at La Mirada. She blogs at JenniferGRichmond.com
