Shepherd of the Hills Church Breaks Ground on New Addition
Posted by Mitchell Englander on January 30, 2015 at 12:00 PM
This Sunday, I joined District Attorney Jackie Lacey, Assemblymember Scott Wilk, former Councilmember Greig Smith, Los Angeles Police Department Devonshire Division’s Captain Robert Marino, and Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich’s office to help break ground on the new 3,500 seat addition at Shepherd of the Hills Church in Porter Ranch.
The 58,600-square foot building, which will be used for worship services and community events, will feature a café with a stage for live music, a bookstore and a large outdoor veranda with seating, fire pits, a waterfall, a fountain and environmental art. It will also boast a tower that will give visitors a panoramic view of the San Fernando Valley.
Shepherd Church has repeatedly opened its doors to the community. It hosts community events for the entire San Fernando Valley, like the Mayor’s Budget 101 community meetings, the Northridge Earthquake 20th Anniversary Symposium, and regular Neighborhood Council meetings.
