Notes & Nods


Summer fun and worship continue at Lutheran Church in the Foothills. LCIF offers activities that are open to all: Bible study groups, knitting, quilting; opportunities to learn live-streaming media production, children’s church and more! Those who enjoy singing are welcome to join the summer choir. It is informal; just show up and sing. No practice required.

This Sunday, July 24 at 10 a.m., Pastor Chuck Bunnell will preach from the Gospel of Luke 11:1-13. Sunday’s hymn of the day is “Lord, teach us how to pray aright.” Worship service is held in-person as well as live-streamed on the church’s YouTube channel. A link to the online service can be found on LCIF’s website.

Pastor Bunnell also reminds the community that he is available to consult with anyone interested in baptism, confirmation or membership. He is also available for visitation. Anyone with a loved one wanting a pastoral visit at their home or in the hospital should contact the church.

For more information or to request/offer help, email or call (818) 790-1951. The church is located at 1700 Foothill Blvd in La Cañada Flintridge. Office hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Walk and Word

In July, 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 July 24 & 31. Participants 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.
