It was a very Good Friday for Calvary Chapel of the Harbour. The Sunset Beach church, believed to be the only one in the history of the unincorporated seaside community, got its final permits from the city of Huntington Beach on April 2 to move into a new location on Pacific Coast Highway. With the church awaiting the green light from the California Coastal Commission, Calvary Chapel’s resurrection may still be a ways off. But Pastor Joe Pedick savored the victory nonetheless.

COSTA MESA — A great beginning and ending was all that Ocean View needed to get an opening night victory Thursday. Kyle Walker scored on a six-yard run with 5:20 to play and Kenny Tarpley followed with a two-point conversion run, then the Seahawks defense did the rest as Ocean View came away with a 15-14 victory over host Calvary Chapel at Orange Coast College. A game full of miscues and mistakes actually had a dramatic ending. Trailing 14-7 with 7:33 remaining in the game, Ocean View went to work from its own 40. Actually, Walker, a senior running back, was the work horse during what turned out to be a six-play, 60 yard drive that led to the go-ahead score.

Michele Marr The cover of the weekly bulletin at Calvary Chapel Beach Side quotes from the book of Isaiah, "Let them give glory to the Lord, and declare his praise in the coastlands." The church has made its home as close to the coastlands as it could get and it's focused on carrying out its mission. First called Committed Christian Fellowship, the church began as a Bible study of mostly surfers who met in a La Habra surf shop. Eventually, the Bible study grew into a church and moved to Huntington Beach.
