You may have heard on the news about a break-in at our Church in Irvine, Harvest Orange County.
There is not much I can tell you at this point except the following-
Two men who were thought to be armed broke into the Orange County Harvest church building last night. Police were notified and on the scene within minutes. After a brief search and standoff, the suspects were found in the building and apprehended. No one was injured in the process. There was no known motive for the break-in but there were some minor damages to the building. We are grateful to the Irvine police for their quick response. Church operations and services will continue on Thursday without interruption.
As it turns out, the suspects did not have real guns.
Harvest continues to work with local authorities to assess the motive and intention of these criminals. We are confident the situation is resolved, all our service and programs will continue as normal, but we are taking additional security precautions for the foreseeable future. We appreciate the extraordinary work of the local authorities and are thankful to God for the prayers and abundant support of our community. The fact that the situation was resolved so quickly attests to the professionalism of the Irvine Police Dept. and also to the safety we already had in place as a congregation.
When I find out more, I will let you know. I had a lot of people let me know that they were praying for me and my family and Church.
Thank you for that. We are all fine!
