Aborted Baby Parts Sold: Stopped in Orange County

October 2016
60 North Orange County clergy met at Grace OC Church in Yorba Linda, located across the parking lot from DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences, to educate themselves regarding aborted babies and their parts being sold from these companies. The clergy organized and began prayer vigils. In May 2016, four pastors met with Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, Chair, Select Committee on Infant Lives in Washington, D.C., to hear about and aid in the investigation regarding this issue.

In October 2016, the Orange County District Attorney, Tony Rackauckas, pictured above, filed a $1.2 million lawsuit against both of these companies. At the Christmas Banquet in December 2016 – with many pastors from the initial meeting at Grace OC Church – present, Church United awarded Mr. Tony Rackauckas with a Red Tie Award.

LGBT Legislation Stopped by Prayers Answered

May 2016
After 70 California pastors participated in a worship service inside the United States Capitol, every one of them was asked to gather in the center of the rotunda. Four pastors (Young, old, First Tribes, black, brown, white, ex-gay) were asked to lay hands on six members of the House of Representatives (Congressmen Noah Webster, Florida; Louie Gohmert, Texas; John Moolenaar, Michigan; Glen Thompson, Pennsylvania; Steve King, Iowa; and Jody Hice, Georgia) and pray because a New York member from the House of Representatives added an LGBT rider to the bill, HR-2 (a water bill).

The LGBT rider would have discriminated against businesses who held a belief of marriage between man and woman. After the pastors prayed, the bill died the next day on the floor of the House of Representatives.
