Perris Valley Community Church is a young church plant in the city of Perris California, in Riverside County. We are led by Pastor Chris Thompson, a graduate of Liberty University and a Southern California native. Our first formal meeting was held as a Thursday evening bible study at the home of Pastor Chris on July 20, 2017. Along with Pastor and his wife, two random strangers who had answered the word-of-mouth advertising about the bible study, sat at a kitchen table and started lessons in the book of James.
Since that first bible study, PVCC has grown in attendance every month and began holding Sunday services out of a local coffee shop in May of 2018. The owners of the establishment are believers in Jesus and are thankful to be able to open their business to a church plant on Sundays, a day when their business is closed. In November of 2018, Perris Valley Community Church was dealt a legal blow that forced them out of their coffee shop sanctuary. They relocated to the Perris Senior Center and plan to continue services at the Senior Center through Easter of 2019.
Our congregation is, by intention, multi-generational and multi-ethnic. We consist of all colors, four nations, and our attendees speak combine 5 languages. We worship in English and will bring a Spanish worship song into service every so often.
Perris Valley Community Church strives to “Reach Perris from within Perris.” Our outreach ministry, called “Impact Perris,” is tasked with the mission to reach into our community from the inside of Perris. We strive to be a church that can bless our city from the inside and be known as the people who show Christ by our service. As a church plant, our offerings to our city may be small, but the culture we are building is designed to last for generations.
