Here are a few of the local organizations that we actively support and partner with to positively impact the San Fernando Valley.
TWIN VALLEYS LUTHERAN PARISH COLLABORATION
As member congregations of the Twin Valleys Lutheran Parish and as members of the Southwest California Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, we hereby commit ourselves to work together as the Holy Spirit guides us for the spiritual and material growth of our Church, the body of Christ and its outreach in the world.
COOKING FOR OUR UNHOUSED NEIGHBORS
If you enjoy cooking with friends, Bethel's Kitchen Ministry offers two opportunities to cook for a cause:
- Join Mylene and other Bethel members to prepare and distribute breakfast burritos for those experiencing homelessness every Saturday morning. Burrito "build" from 8am to 10am, burrito delivery from 10am to 11am.
- On the first Saturday of each month, additional food is prepared to support a NOHO Home Alliance food distribution event the first Sunday of the month at 11031 Camarillo St., North Hollywood.
If you are interested in volunteering for one or more areas, please contact Mylene.

INTERFAITH SOLIDARITY NETWORK
The Interfaith Solidarity Network breaks down barriers and inspires solidarity among faith communities in the San Fernando Valley by: building relationships across cultures and faiths, educating communities, organizing for peace and justice, mobilizing against intolerance, and embracing principles of nonviolence.
CENTER FOR ACADEMIC SERVICE-LEARNING
Bethel has partnered with California Lutheran University and its Center for Academic Service-Learning department to increase, motivate, and enable student involvement in community outreach initiatives while developing them as leaders through experiential learning.
