Most of us know someone struggling with mental illness. Yet, we don't talk about it much, especially in the church. Let's change this.

Join us this Sunday as we begin a new series called Mental Wholeness & Scripture. For three weeks, we will explore issues related to mental health. In order to make Burbank First a safe space for folks to "come as they are," we need to be a brave place that moves beyond silence and stigmatization, to hope and healing.



This Friday & Saturday, you are invited to celebrate the graduate in your household by putting up a sign or poster along the handrails in front of our church. We ask that you please use painter's tape and place your sign in front of the flag pole or in front of the Burbank First United Methodist Church lettering.

During Sunday worship, we will take a moment to recognize the High School graduates of Burbank First.

If you plan on joining us in person, please register on our website at If you have any questions or comments, please email or call:, 818-845-1531 x105.

Thank you & blessings,
Pastor Sam
