SHPC SCHEDULE OF REGULAR CHURCH ACTIVITIES:
Worship and Praise Service: Sunday Morning, Main Sanctuary, 10:00 a.m.
Note: A Quiet Room with a big one-way mirror is also available for families with very young children.
SHPC is also wheelchair-accessible, and can also possibly provide donated walkers and wheelchairs for use during the worship hour upon request.
SHPC’s Communion Sunday Morning Service at the Main Sanctuary takes place regularly on the 1st Sunday of the Month – except for December, given that month is the time of Advent, focusing on the coming of Christ, not His self-sacrificial passing.
In addition, Communion Sunday is moved to the 2nd Sunday of the month during the rare occasion when Bright Sunday (the 1st Sunday after Easter) happens to fall on the 1st Sunday of the month.
K-8th Grade Sunday School: Sunday Morning, Small Chapel, 10:15 a.m.
Pets Are Welcome Service (PAWS): First Sunday Afternoons, Small Chapel or Front Lawn, 5:00 p.m.
NOTE: PAWS does not take place during relatively rare instances of Inclement Weather and Natural Emergencies, such as during severe rainstorms and flooding, wildfires, earthquakes, and the like.
Blessing of The Animals (BoTA): A long-time tradition of SHPC open to the entire community, our next Blessing of the Animals is slated to take place within the Spring season of 2018, given that Los Angeles County has recently approved having each single family household be allowed to have as much as four (4) dogs (as long as they get along and are well-behaved, of course!), as well as to properly celebrate how all out animals companions still loyally stick by use despite the many challenges nature at times poses to us.
All kinds of securely leashed/harnessed/transported animals are welcome, including but not limited to: household pets, service animals, and work animals!
Booth spaces for animal-friendly businesses and non-profits are also available at either free or low cost. Please kindly e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call PH # 818-353-2500 for more details.
Messy Church: An Interactive Outdoor Service every 2nd Sunday Afternoon, SHPC Community Garden (entry is through the Sanctuary), 4:00 p.m.
NOTE: Messy Church does not take place during the following events – 3-Day Federal/Cultural Holiday Weekends, Select Winter Sundays of December and January to give way to Advent & Christmas events, and during Inclement Weather, such as Severe Rainstorms.
Lent/Pre-Easter Weeknight Services: Ash Wednesday (March 1, 2017) and Maundy Thursday (April 13, 2017) offers Communion during these 7:30 p.m. weeknight services at the SHPC Main Sanctuary.
Blue Christmas Weeknight Service: During a select Advent weeknight, a 7:30 p.m. Blue Christmas Service is offered at the SHPC Main Sanctuary to those facing significant grief during the year (ex. the passing of a loved one, or being alone/without family and friends to share the traditionally jovial Christmas holidays with). The Blue Christmas Service can also accommodate those who have to work or be on the road during the Christmas holidays and weekends too.
Weekday Church Office Hours: Tues, Wed, & Thurs, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Weeknight/Weekday Fellowship Groups @ off-site venues chosen monthly:
Young Adult Group: SAVED (Ages 18-30 are Welcome!) – 1st Wednesdays of the month.

SHPC FUND-RAISING PAGE LINKS
SHPC Consumer Container & Printer Cartridge Recycling Program in front of SHPC Kitchen (consumer containers types: recycling code 1 and 2 plastics, glass bottles, and cans made of aluminum or bi-metal qualifying for CRV cash) and behind SHPC Narthex (printer cartridges) (click here:)
Every 1st or 2nd Sunday of the month, Elder Rose Kukla collects filled out Scrip Order Forms both in person (at the Narthex or Parlor after the Sunday 10am morning worship service) and by e-mail too to her too, upon request. If you prefer to pay by check, please make the check payable to SHPC for the total Scrip Form order amount (please put in the check memo line “Scrip”).
As long as there are enough orders monthly to outpace applicable postage and processing costs, your ordered Scrip cards typically arrive at SHPC for you to pick up 1-2 Sundays after your Scrip Order Form submission. In turn, SHPC earns anywhere from 1% to 20% of each ordered Scrip card amount.
There are over 250 Scrip cards to choose from in various denominations (ex. $9.50 movie theater tickets, $100 grocery cards, and even $2,000 Hotel.com ScripNow eCards), covering 12 Product/Service Categories: Grocery, Gas & Auto, Dining – On The Go, Dining – Casual and Fine, Health & Beauty, Home Improvement, Extra Stuff (ex. cascading card file, gift card wrapper), Department & Specialty Stores, Electronics & Office, Entertainment, Online, and Travel/Vacation.
Whether you are shopping for your own household or are thinking of stocking up on gift cards for others, the SHPC Scrip Program is a secure way to cost-effectively pre-pay for quality products and services while creatively contributing to SHPC’s year-long fundraising efforts!
