Notes & Nods

This Week at LCIF
Lutheran Church in the Foothills continues to offer “Couch Church” for the foreseeable future. It will livestream Sundays and Wednesdays at 10 a.m. on their Facebook page – People don’t have to have a Facebook account to watch the service but by having it they can offer comments and prayer requests online. After the livestream, the service can be found on the church’s website at Bulletins for children and adults (along with games for children and a Bible quiz for adults!) are also available on the website.
Those who need help or need to talk can email the church at or call the church office at (818) 790-1951. Prayer requests, needs and offers to help are most welcome. The church is connecting those with needs to those who can help.
The building at 1700 Foothill Blvd was never the church – we are the church. We will get through this together.
Lutheran Church in the Foothills, the “touchdown” church, is located at 1700 Foothill Blvd. For more information, call (818) 790-1951 or visit
