"This is the last Sunday we will be worshiping in this building," Pastor
Sheila Schuller Coleman told congregants during an emotional 11 a.m.
service in the famous Crystal Cathedral. Her father, founder of the Hour of Power, Robert Schuller, also resigned from the board and has left.

"Hour of Power” is currently showing re-runs while the production is on hold.
After the pastor's surprise announcement, the Rev. Bill Bennett assured
congregants that Crystal Cathedral Ministries would hold services next
Sunday. "The congregation can basically stay where they wish to stay," Bennett said later.
He said the church would revert to what he called a more "traditional"

as senior pastor. The church was sold to the Roman Catholic Diocese of
Orange in February for $57.5 million, and the ministry has three years
to find a new home.
