ELF HAS $8,000 to award this fall to grant proposals!
THE FOUNDATION’S PERPETUAL FUND has money to dispense from last year’s net investment income. (This is in addition to the approximately monies marked for distribution from the Facilities Endowment Fund and scholarships for Laurel Hall).
Use the grant form (link below) to request funds for church, Laurel Hall, Early Childhood Center programs, projects and ministries that are not a part of the regular operating budget or capital program.
ELF is seeking projects that can be funded within six months of the grant awards announcement. It is the Foundation’s intention that grants awarded will be directly funded.
Due Date for Proposals is Friday, October 25, 2017.
Announcement of funded proposals is Friday, November 17, 2017.
The Emmanuel Lutheran Foundation grows through generous gifts which are prudently invested and prayerfully dispersed to support the ministries of Emmanuel Lutheran Church. A gift to the foundation is truly “THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING.”

We are also pleased to announce our next show for this season: The Rainmaker See the first rehearsal pic. The show opens in November.
We have space for one more show this season, and early April, 2018!
The conclusion of our 2016/2017 Season also signaled the departure of two of our long-standing Board members. Stepping down from their official capacities are Wendy Hirschman and Therese Hawes. Both have served the Board and our ELATE community with distinction for many years, and we hate to see them go.
We are very fortunate, however, to be adding a few familiar faces to the Board. Long time ELATE members Andrew Piecka and Tom Reilly have agreed to step in and help keep ELATE moving ever forward. Welcome, gentlemen!
On behalf of the members here at Emmanuel, I would like to express our excitement at the opportunity to know you and to share with you the marvelous ways in which Christ is working through our church into the community and beyond!
Within this website you will find information on some of the ministries we do together as a family of faith. Working together we grow together in faith, love, service and learning. Together we reach out into a world that desperately needs to hear and see the Good News it cannot do without: The Good news that God loves them, all of them, more than they can possibly imagine!
If you’ve been thinking, searching, hoping and praying for a special place to call home in this large, amazing and sometimes overwhelming city of Los Angeles, we say to you – Welcome!
Emmanuel Lutheran Church and Community - a special place you can call home.
