“When faced with a mountain

I will not quit. I will find a way over, tunnel underneath, or stay at the base and bloom

where I am planted!”

Happenings, et cetera at   Shepherd’s Grove Church

Casey Burns, long time volunteer facilitator at Divorce and Grief Recovery at the Crystal Cathedral passed away December 23, 2016.  

Monday Meals: Update Monday meals for the homeless is to continue. The issue that it was going to be discontinued is unfounded. Previously, Monday Meals for the homeless was a routine even when a holiday fell on a Monday. In the future when a holiday falls on a Monday, no Monday Meals will be available on the holiday.

Thank you Bobby for your heartfelt explanation. Wearing the robe truly sets you apart from the others preaching on late night or early morning television on a set with a few plants scattered around and no credentials to preach anything. We at Pen’s Opinion believe it is a great move for the Hour of Power.

Jack Chalabian, former board member at the Crystal Cathedral and Shepherd’s Grove has been hospitalized with pneumonia. Please pray for Jack.

The Date and Time in

Garden Grove, California is:

Iconic Crystal Cathedral 90 foot Doors to be Forever Rendered Inoperable!

Isn’t it about time for Shepherd’s Grove Church to schedule an “All Church Congregational Meeting.

During the past few weeks, the webmaster at Pen’s Opinion has received more than a few email messages asking the above question.

Perhaps, congregants just want to know how things are going with our church and would also like to have an opportunity to ask a few questions of leadership, make a recommendation or express an idea,

From our perspective everything seems to be going fine. Donations seem to have increased; the Hour of Power program is a fine production thanks to our production team; the choir and orchestra are terrific, and we have a great church service.

How about it? Let’s get an all church congregational meeting scheduled! If you agree, call Shepherd’s Grove at (714) 971-4000 and let them know you would like them to schedule an all church congregational meeting.

Shepherd’s Grove Board Member, Craig Bourne, had a heart attack in La Port Indiana. His wife, Debbie is with him. Still waiting for results from tests. Please pray for a good outcome for Craig and for a speedy recovery. Reported by Bruce Creager, May 16, 2017

UPDATE: May 17, Looks like Craig did not have a heart attack. He did get at least one stent. Problem now is getting him home. He has to lie flat on has back and not sit for long times. My answer: rent a suv and lay the back seats flat with Craig on an camping air mattress. Yes a lot of prayer!

UPDATE: May 18, I'm out of the hospital. We are at the drugstore picking up prescriptions. Craig
