Bankrupt Crystal Cathedral Asks Members To Donate Meals For Founders; Limo Will Make Delivery

California-based megachurch Crystal Cathedral has made what churchgoers find to be a strange request: Drop off meals for its founder Robert Schuller's pneumonia-stricken wife, Arvella, which will then be picked up by a limo.

Church administrators sent out the email asking people of its congregation to help out the Schullers by dropping off prepared meals, the Orange County Register reports. The plea also outlined what kinds of food would be acceptable.

The message sparked some controversy, with some members saying the fact a limo would be making the delivery was "ludicrous."

Cathedral spokesperson John Charles told the Orange Country Register the request was for churchgoers to help ill members of its congregation, as they have done in the past.

But one member doesn't see it that way.

"We're just tired of it," Bob Canfield told the Los Angeles Times. "We're just tired of them taking advantage of us."

The church recently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and the Schullers were accused of taking $10 million from the church's endowment funds, the Associated Press reports.
