Food, prayer and fellowship. That’s on the menu every Thursday at 9 a.m. at the La Cañada Flintridge McDonald’s. Pastor Rick Hall of Lutheran Church in the Foothills hosts the weekly meetups.
“We’ll meet at McDonald’s, get our own food, and have a short devotion and share prayer together. All are welcome,” Hall said.
LCIF is pleased to report its congregation assembled more than 80 school supply kits for children in need. LCIF’s annual day of service, known as “God’s work. Our hands,” took place on Sunday, Sept. 10. New backpacks were filled with donated supplies including spiral notebooks, rulers, Crayons, scissors, pencils and sharpeners. Earlier, during the 10 a.m. worship service, a special back-to-school blessing was given to students, school teachers, coaches and administrators.
LCIF continues to collect donations for victims of the Maui wildfire disaster. LCIF will match monetary donations from the congregation up to $500 and will direct the funds to the Pacifica Synod for distribution to wildfire victims in Hawaii. Those wishing to donate should visit LCIF’s website for more information, including a link to donate.
Sunday worship with Pastor Hall continues to include programming for young children. Children’s Church is offered during 10 a.m. worship. Families should meet in the church’s sanctuary. After a message for the children from Pastor Hall, the kids head to the Youth Room for games, crafts and study.
