My aunt Lea recently asked me to find the location of the Glen Oak Community Church from the TV show 7th Heaven. This location was featured in my go-to stalking book and I ran right out to stalk it this past weekend. Reverend Eric Camden’s church, which was shown prominently throughout 7th Heaven’s ten year run, is actually called the First Christian Church of North Hollywood. Even though I have only watched a few episodes of 7th Heaven over the years, I immediately recognized the church as we drove up to it. Both the interior and the exterior of the church were used in the filming of 7th Heaven. Unfortunately a wedding was taking place while I was stalking it, so I couldn’t venture inside to take pictures. 😦
The church is a popular filming location and has been featured in countless productions including The Office, What About Bob, Crossing Jordan, Hart to Hart and The Birdcage, among others. It’s not hard to see why the First Christian Church is used so often for filming – it is a really cute little church and looks like it could be found in any small town in America. You can learn more about the church’s filming history on its website.
Until next time, Happy Stalking! 🙂
Stalk It: The First Christian Church of North Hollywood can be found at 4390 Colfax Avenue, in Studio City, not North Hollywood – go figure! It is right at the corner of Moorpark Street and Colfax Avenue. The church is open to the public and (if a wedding is not taking place) you can easily venture inside and take a look around. It is just a few short blocks away from The 40 Year Old Virgin apartment.
