      Crystal Cathedral in Calif. owes money to vendors

      (excerpts)

      GARDEN GROVE, Calif. — The Crystal Cathedral megachurch, birthplace of the "Hour of Power" televangelist broadcast, owes tens of thousands of dollars for services provided for last year's holiday pageant, vendors said Thursday.

      Administrators sent an e-mail to "Glory of Christmas" vendors saying the church is having "severe financial difficulties" and can't afford to pay them now.

      The church, founded in the mid-1950s by Robert H. Schuller, is staggering under about $55 million in debt. Earlier this year it ordered major layoffs, cut the number of stations airing the "Hour of Power" and sold property to stay afloat.

      Vendor Kristina Oliver, who provides the live animals for the "Glory of Christmas" manger scene from her Hemet-based Oliver Livestock Co., said she has been trying to collect nearly $57,000 from the church for months.
