Newsong Church of Irvine and Santa Ana’s First Baptist Church are still in escrow, as I understand it, but already there are plans for Newsong Santa Ana to join the congregation at First Baptist as of the service on Dec. 19, and the entire Irvine Newsong congregation will be coming to Santa Ana for a joint service on January 12, 2014.
First Baptist is a historic congregation in that this was the first Protestant church in Santa Ana, originally operating on land donated by the founder of this city, William Spurgeon. Over the years the congregation dwindled as folks moved away and began to pass away. Pastor Andy Quient reached out to Newsong’s Pastor Dave Gibbons when Newsong’s attempt to purchase the Santora Building, in Downtown Santa Ana, was rebuffed by the artists in DTSA.
Quient will be continuing his ministry at First Baptist in conjunction with Newsong. The deal that is in escrow was approved by First Baptist’s members a few months ago after many months of deliberation.
This is all such a relief to the members of First Baptist who are now assured that their church will continue its ministry and it will be re-energized by Newsong and Gibbons.

Orange County District Attorney Press Release
For Immediate Release: December 6, 2013
SANTA ANA – The Orange County District Attorney’s Office (OCDA) has received a $386,060 state grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) to address the problem of driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs in Orange County. This is the fourth OTS grant awarded to OCDA in an effort to improve detection and prosecution of alcohol and drug-related DUI cases. The OTS grant is funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Between 2005 and 2012, the OCDA received over $1.3 million in OTS grants to facilitate the prosecution of DUI alcohol and drug cases by allowing deputy district attorneys and clerical support staff to focus exclusively on DUI cases.
In 2008, the OCDA created the first Vehicular Homicide Team of the Homicide Unit in the State of California, with specialized prosecutors and Investigators to vertically prosecute vehicle death cases. The Team gives presentations to college sororities, fraternities, and high school and elementary students to educate young drivers about the dangers of alcohol and drug impaired driving.
The new OTS grant will expand the prosecution, training and outreach services provided by the vertical prosecution team. It will also provide training and outreach to members of the general community, law enforcement and prosecutors in Orange County.
The OCDA Vehicular Homicide Team consists of Senior Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Walker and Deputy District Attorney Anna McIntire, who prosecute vehicular death cases. The Drug Impaired Driver Vertical Prosecution Team consists of Deputy District Attorneys Charlyn Bender, Jeffrey Kirk, Gautam Sood, and Amy Swanson, who prosecute drug-related DUI cases part-time.
