Welcome

Come Worship with Us!

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).

We will be receiving new members into our congregation on Sunday, October 19th during our 10am worship service. Pastor Gretchen invites anyone interested in exploring what it means to be a member of American Lutheran Church to contact us and schedule a one-on-one meeting at the main office. Everyone is welcome to learn more about our pastor, congregation and our church community.

“God’s work. Our hands.” Days of Service

 

Last weekend on September 6th -7th, our congregation joined  thousands of ELCA congregations across the country in a dedicated weekend of service,God’s work. Our hands.” This huge “labor of love” for the world that God so loves, is a witness to our mission as the church.

We offered five events over the weekend, including volunteering at the Children’s Hunger Fund in Sylmar, participating in The Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection Program in Burbank, holding a “No Child Wet Behind” disposable diaper drive, assembling personal care and school kits for Lutheran World Relief, and joining ELCA Advocacy by writing postcards to our members of Congress expressing the importance of improving the lives of children, low-income mothers, and older Americans. The weekend was a great success.

 

MISSION STATEMENT

“American Lutheran Church is called to witness the Good News of God’s love through service in our community and beyond.”
