Calling. Journey. Becoming. This Sunday at 9:30 a.m., join us in the Book of Exodus to explore your calling, navigate your journey, and embrace who you are becoming on personal and communal levels.

Join us online via our livestream at our Emmanuel Church Burbank YouTube Channel, or on our public Facebook page.

This Sunday we will also take communion together (remotely) during the service. Prepare before the service begins, using bread- and juice-type elements you have available at home.
Want a space to process the meaning of God's calling? Have questions or just want to dialogue with others about it? On Wed., Jan. 27, at 7 p.m., grab a tea or drink of choice and join Pastor Brian in a conversation about God's calling in life. This is not a workshop or teaching lesson. It's a conversation with insights. Feel free to join in, or just listen. No RSVP needed. Just click on this Zoom link.

LOVING FRONT-LINE WORKERS: In crisis, there are those in the trenches, fighting for others and the safety of our community. Over the next couple of months, Emmanuel will be "loving on" front-line workers with care packets and encouragement notes! In coming days we will invite you to be a part of this act of communal flourishing, by donating specific items for the care packets. We will move on this quickly, so stay tuned for the details!
