This summer we’ve been spending some time experiencing what God is doing through some of the newer Church plantings in Burbank. Story City Church, South Hills Church & CityLight Church members have been out-&-about all over town serving their Community – from Backpack Giveaways to Flash Gas Buys, Random Acts of Kindness, Encouragement Cards, Free Coffee/Donuts & Water at City Events & much more… Burbank has been saturated with God’s People demonstrating His Love & Generosity in a powerful way. All 3 Churches have hosted Family Movie Nights we’ve attended and we’ve had the chance to visit-worship-fellowship with 2/3 Churches so far, as well as listen/watch several sermons online. Here’s a brief summary of these Churches for those looking to experience a vibrant Jesus centered Faith-Community.

What better way to spend Valentine’s Day than attending the Diamond Jubilee celebration honoring Sister Regina Palamara @ St. Finbars. The event was MC’ed by former Mayor Marsha Ramos. In attendance were Rev. Albert Bahhuth & Rev. Francis Mendoza who gave the Invocation, Boy Scout Troop 219 who delivered the Flag Salute, Burbank Mayor Bob Frutos who presented Sister Regina with a plague in recognition of her 60 years of service to the community as a Missionary Sister of the Sacred Heart (aka “Cabrini Sisters”), and the Key to the City of Burbank! St. Finbar School Principal Michael Marasco, Former Student & KTLA News Anchor Cher Calvin, Cabrini Sisters & Family Members all joined Marsha in sharing stories of Regina’s impact. Also attending the Luncheon were Laura Frutos, Vice-Mayor Jess Talamantes & former Assemblyman Anthony Portantino. Food was served by The Knights of Columbus incl. Marsha’s husband Dave, Dad and community servant Juan Guillen, to name just a few. Sister Regina has been a great supporter of Family Promise and you can enjoy some past PHOTO Memories here & a few IOS snaps from Sunday’s event here. * Ext. LINKS – MyBurbank.com Story
