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).
Join us each Sunday for worship at 10:00am followed by fellowship time on the patio. The season of summer coincides with a long period of the church year called Ordinary Time or the Time after Pentecost. The color in worship is green, a color of growth and new life in the natural world and also for us spiritually, as we grow into faithful disciples of Jesus. While we don’t celebrate any high festivals like Christmas and Easter during this period, it allows us the opportunity to see God in the simple, everyday rhythms of life. As Gerard Manley observed, even this ordinary time is “charged with the grandeur of God.” If that is the case, maybe summer can be the beginning of Extraordinary Time as we pay attention to how God is present and active in our daily lives.

Summer often brings vacations and travels to other places. If you are away from Burbank, you may find another ELCA congregation for worship as you journey, by visiting www.elca.org and clicking on the link “Find a congregation” by city and state.
“O God, our beginning and our end, you kept Abraham and Sarah in safety throughout the days of their pilgrimage, you led the children of Israel through the midst of the sea, and by a star you led the magi to the infant Jesus. Protect and guide us when we travel. Make our ways safe and our homecomings joyful, and bring us at last to our heavenly home, where you dwell in glory with our Lord Jesus Christ and the life-giving Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever, Amen.”
“American Lutheran Church is called to witness the Good News of God’s love through service in our community and beyond.”
