Our "Homecoming" Worship and Healing Services
This Sunday, August 3rd, is our first church service at Harmony Grove following the May fires of 2014. We will have services in the Healing Temple.
If you have not been to HGSA since the fire, you might prepare yourself for something of a shock. Many of the buildings, grassy areas, and trees are either damaged or destroyed. However, the grounds themselves still radiate their peaceful and healing energy and you will be able to appreciate that.
We remain in active clean-up and rebuild mode and this will continue for months to come. But we miss you and you miss the Grove, and we are proud that we are able to open the Grove for services in just two months' time following the fire. Much has been happening behind the scenes while you have been away and we now have electric power and water service to the HGSA buildings that still stand.
Areas beyond the Healing Temple will be closed due to ongoing Construction hazards. These unsettled areas may be attractive to younger visitors. For this reason, HGSA has been asked by the church insurance company not to allow children under 14 years to attend services during the rebuild period. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and your family.
Please join us for church service!
DONATIONS: We're winding down the donation center now, not taking any new
donations of tangible goods, and trying to distribute as much as we can to
residents/leaseholders by July 28th. Thank you for the many, many wonderful donations of items that have come our way in support of the residents of HGSA. We appreciate you for your kindness and generosity.
Due to the wildfires and high Santa Ana winds, HGSA incurred substantial damage and loss of buildings and homes on May 15, 2014.
The HGSA Summer Institute has been canceled due to the fire devastation. Please do not call the office. The phone line needs to be clear because we are still in emergency response mode requiring constant contact with many different agencies.
Psychic Fairs will be on hold until further notice.
Any changes and updates will be posted on this website and/or Facebook.
Thank you for your continuing prayers and donations.
Beautiful people from all over the country, we are receiving your insurmountable LOVE and desire to help. We are in the process of putting necessary mechanisms in place for donations of all kinds.
We apologize if we have not responded to your email, but we are doing our best to answer them all. Our primary focus is to get the Grove up and functioning again so we may be of service to everyone. Thank you everyone for all of your support.
We check for mail daily at the post office, so your dollar donations in the form of a check or money order can be mailed to:
Harmony Grove Spiritualist Association
2975 Washington Circle, Escondido, CA 92029
We have set up a non-profit donation account for the HGSA General Fund to help rebuild HGSA. Please note on your check that this is for the “HGSA Rebuilding Fund”, along with this Non-Profit Tax ID number Tax #23-7408444.
As much as Harmony Grove Spiritual Association loves and supports all of the HGSA residents who lost their homes and belongings (which includes many HGSA board members), due to the non-profit tax regulations, HGSA cannot collect donations of any kind for the HGSA residents.
HGSA also plans to have coordinators to work with teams of volunteers who would like to donate time or services for HGSA disaster recovery. Please post your message on the HGSA Facebook link or
e-mail HGSA: email@example.com.
Please. Unless you have a specific purpose for being on the grounds, for insurance and safety purposes, we are asking that you refrain from visiting the Grove during the immediate recovery process.
We love you all and look forward to rebuilding with your help. Thank you to everyone for prayers, love, support and donations.
In gratitude on behalf of all of the HGSA members,
HGSA Board of Directors
