Lutheran Church Celebrates 75 Years

Lutheran Church in the Foothills celebrated its 75th anniversary Feb. 19 with a special worship service and catered luncheon.
Special guests included former longtime LCIF Pastor Bruce Johnson (2002-2014) who delivered the sermon, as well as the Rev. Brenda Bos, Bishop of the Southwest California Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the Rev. Dok Go Won of the La Cañada Korean Church.
LCIF was formally organized in 1948. It all started with services at the American Legion Hall in Verdugo City. LCIF has been at its current home on Foothill Boulevard in La Cañada for more than 50 years.
Sunday’s celebration was also an opportunity to collect food for the hungry. LCIF encouraged attendees to bring canned goods. Donations to food pantries typically drop after Christmas and, according to LCIF, there is a particular need in Lake View Terrace. The food collected will be delivered to Heart of the Canyon Church for distribution. Canned goods are still being accepted and can be dropped off at LCIF’s office on Sundays or anytime during the week.
Visit lcifoothills.org for event details. Weekly Sunday worship with Pastor Chuck Bunnell is held at 10 a.m. in person and online. For more information or to request/offer help, email office@lcifoothills.org, or call (818) 790-1951.
The church is located at 1700 Foothill Blvd. Office hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Friday.
