Established in 1921, we are a historic church in Hollywood that is open, affirming and welcoming to all people—regardless of race, class, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity. We are forward-looking and fast-thinking about Christ's mission and ministry in the 21st Century.
|• With a strong record of community service, we offer a Community Garden, and operate a weekly Hollywood Community Food Pantry for the hungry of our neighborhood.|| |
|• Welcoming the Hollywood film and entertainment industries, we stage Hollywood Call Back quarterly receptions for emerging film makers, actors and other professionals.|| |
|• Home to numerous community arts events and programs, we host the Hollywood Master Chorale, Silverlake Children’s Theatre Group, Los Feliz Art Walk, and serve as a frequent filming location.|| |
|• Serving those living with HIV/AIDS through advocacy and education, and remembering those we have lost to this disease, we launched Hollywood Remembers, Inc. for ongoing service to the greater community. When the world forgets, Hollywood Remembers.|| |
|• Standing with all who are in recovery from drug/alcohol or other addictions, we welcome twenty 12-step meetings each week, and offer individual pastoral counseling centered on spiritual growth in recovery.|| |
|• Making a difference in the lives of those who are, or have been, incarcerated, we operate Mariposa Prison & Parole Ministry that serves 120 people in 20 prisons, on parole or probation or under community supervision (AB109).|| |
|• Our doors are open to sexual minorities. A member congregation of the Reconciling in Christ program of Lutherans Concerned, we especially welcome LGBTQ people of faith and those who love them. We welcome same-gender couples and those preparing to marry! Also see: About DOMA and Proposition 8.|| |
| • Grounded in both evangelical and catholic roots, we take the Bible seriously, not literally. We offer a worship experience that combines traditional liturgy and eucharist with biblical preaching and uplifting music and prayer.|| |
| • We are committed to following Jesus —wherever he is working in the world today— trying to be faithful, not religious, in sharing God’s good news for humanity through our service to others.|| |
Hollywood Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Southwest California Synod.
