October Faith-Based Spotlight

October 9, 2017


Family Month @ South Hills Church

Everyone you know may have differing perspectives on God, Christianity, and the Bible, but one thing most people have in common is a genuine desire to love & lead their families well. We want our romance to last. We want to set our kids up for success. We want to leave our families something other than a laundry list of issues to overcome in therapy. We all want these things. We’re just not always sure how to go about getting them.

Family Month is about setting aside 5-straight weeks to focus on just that. This October we’ll explore ancient wisdom, cautionary tales & best practices together in hopes of learning how to help our families, current or future, be as holistically healthy as possible. What kind of fun can you expect from us?

CEREAL BUFFET / Sunday, October 8
BOUNCE HOUSE & BUBBLES / Sunday, October 15
JERSEY SUNDAY / Sunday, October 22

2 Services & New Series @ Story City Church

Since day one, we have been a church that believes every story matters and no story is too bad, too good, too mad, or too far from God to matter to Him. This past spring and summer, our church had reached the point where our auditorium felt too full for new faces to feel at home. Because of this, we knew it was time to start again and make more room for more stories, which includes yours. Starting this Sunday, October 8th, we are moving to two identical services starting at 10:00am & 11:30am. Both services will have kids ministry for birth through 5th grade. We also begin a brand new series this weekend titled “The Ever Chasing GOD – a Journey through the Book of Jonah”.


Christianity Introduction @ Emmanuel Church

ALPHA COURSE: ALPHA is a 10 week introductory course into Christianity. Each Sunday evening begins with a free dinner, followed by a thought-provoking video. Participants then break up into small groups for lively discussions. It is a great opportunity to explore life’s difficult questions in a safe, friendly environment. Alpha begins this Sunday evening October 8, 6:30 – 9:00. For more details contact Rick Durrance:

Happy Labor Day! Pray 4 Israel. Talaria drama.

August 29, 2014


I had the pleasure of attending a wonderful evening of education and inspiration with David Siegel, Consul General of Israel in L.A last night at Burbank Temple Emanuel El. Great community turnout incl. Mayor David Gordon who presented Mr Siegel with a plaque to commemorate his first visit to Burbank in 10 years. Also in attendance were Vice-Mayor Bob Frutos, Police Commissioners Nate Rubinfeld & Elise Stearns-Niesen, Library Board member Juan J Guillen and many more active Burbank citizens. It was great to see so many old friends from Calvary Chapel Burbank incl. Pastor Tim Anderson and the faith-based community (incl. Burbank Pres) supporting Israel. Pray for Israel, Gaza and Peace. Thanks Barbara Lazar for the invite!

TALARIA Update: It’s come to my attention that a 300+ member Church (Victory Baptist Church) will be torn down and replaced with 241 Condos if the Talaria project is approved. The previous Developer (Platt) was going to build a new Church on the property but not so with the Cusumanos, although they will refund them up-to $50k if they have to leave prior to their lease expiring. However, their Pastor Nick Reed gave public testimony at Monday’s Planning meeting that the Developer had threatened them for opposing the project. I’m saddened but not surprised by these revelations. You can read more on the SemiChorus Blog & here. Here’s the Video:
