A Message from Pastor Ryan

Welcome to American Lutheran Church in Burbank. We are a diverse community of teachers, activists, writers, and families of all kind. As the pastor of this church, my greatest passion and calling is to create sacred spaces and opportunities for people to explore their faith, spirituality, life and experience radical love and healing. Join us at 10AM on a Sunday morning and see what we are about.

Join us as we collaborate with one another and with God to facilitate a just and generous Christian community.

We are all beloved children of God.

We invite all into our inclusive, diverse community of faith as we seek to live the way of Christ’s unconditional and reconciling love. Just as Jesus welcomed each person as a beloved child of God, so we welcome people of all ages, races, ethnicity, culture, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, socio-economic, family or immigration status. Basically if you’re breathing, you’re welcome here. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey this is a non-judgmental place where doors are open and questions are always invited. Feeling spiritually connected in today’s complex society can be challenging. Join us as we grow in faith to do God’s work in Christ’s name for the life of the world.

“Peace be with you” (John 20:26)
