Mental Health Programs Get Boost With Lutheran Church Donation

Lutheran Church in the Foothills is tapping into its endowment fund to give mental health programs a financial boost.
The church’s Endowment Committee awarded a $2,000 donation to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, which aims to foster mental health programs and build initiatives to further understand and prevent suicide.
Mental Health America, Los Angeles will also receive $2,000 to promote mental health programs for lower-income youths.
Another $2,000 donation from LCIF Endowment Committee will go toward the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service for its micro-loan program to assist new migrant and refugee families.
A contribution of $450 will go to the Walter Hoving Home in Pasadena, helping women transition from prison or recover from addiction.
The church also has resumed its ongoing program called, “A Christian Conversation on the Issues of Religion and Science.”
Led by Henry Fliegel, an astronomer and experienced presenter of biblical issues, the discussion group explores the intersection of faith, science and reason.
The group meets every Monday at 11:30 a.m. in the LCIF conference room. No background is needed.
Sunday worship with Pastor Rick Hall continues to include programming for young children. Children’s Church is offered during 10 a.m. worship.
