Notes & Nods

This Week at LCIF 

Lutheran Church in the Foothills continues to have in-person services on Sundays at 10 a.m.; however, for everyone’s safety the community is encouraged to participate in the online services instead. The services, led by interim Pastor Chuck Bunnell, will be live-streamed on the church’s YouTube channel then available for viewing later in the week on YouTube and on the church’s website. Attendees at the in-person service should be aware that masks are required.

Visit the church’s website at for details on all of the events happening including small group gatherings and opportunities to serve.

The church office is located at 1700 Foothill Blvd. in La Cañada Flintridge and is generally open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Contact the office via email at or call (818) 790-1951 for details, information, offering help or requesting help.

Walk and Word

In January, Walk and Word participants will meet in the parking lot of Deukmejian Wilderness Park, 3429 Markridge Road in La Crescenta/Glendale at 8 a.m. on Jan. 9, 16, 23 and 30. They will walk for the first hour and then gather to read a selection of Scripture. About a half hour will be spent journaling about what was read and then there will be conversation, sharing thoughts.

Participants are asked to bring something to write with, anything wanted to eat or drink, and a chair to use for the writing part of the morning. Because people will be outdoors and social distancing will be practiced, masks will be optional.

Those with questions can email Jeanne at

All are welcome. If the hike is too strenuous, there are level paths at the park. There are ramps from the parking lot to the field where the group gathers after the hike.
