Our Church


God’s blessings to you! My name is Larry Bogardus, and I’m the pastor of Friends in Christ Lutheran Church. We are a Bible based church and a caring family of Christians. Our worship service and Sunday School begin at 9:00 a.m. We’re located at 2311 E. Chapman Avenue in Fullerton, just west of State College Blvd. Even if you’ve never been to a Lutheran Church, we think you will feel at home. We have a Bible to give you as our welcome gift; just ask me when you come. We look forward to meeting you.

Friends In Christ also has a preschool and kindergarten with an excellent reputation and dedicated staff. The school offers math, reading, and language readiness as well as music, art, and drama. For more information, please call the director, Chris Williams, at 871-6641.
