Christian Life Church will be holding an official groundbreaking ceremony on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 10 a.m. at the site of the future construction of a new worship center located at 3013 Montrose Ave. (at Ramsdell Ave.), La Crescenta.
The public is invited to join community and church leaders who will be present to break ground on the new 7,500 square foot church that will consist of a sanctuary, childcare facilities and kitchen.
In December 2006, a devastating fire destroyed the former church facilities leaving the congregation, preschool and elementary school without a place to meet. Pastor Randy Foster said that as a result of the fire the congregation dwindled but recently has experienced renewed growth as new people are coming. Church services are currently being held in a classroom on the campus.
After many delays, a new worship center has been designed and approved by the City of Glendale. Construction is expected to begin immediately.
The focus of Christian Life Church since the fire has been to reach out to help meet needs in the community. For the past three years, congregants have provided volunteer support to La Crescenta Elementary school programs in conjunction with the College View school for the handicapped in Glendale. They have also given needy families in the area food and everyday necessities. As the church continues to grow, they look forward to doing more for the community.
