  • Community Services


    Our Paradise Valley Community Services is an active group of about 120 volunteers who are busy serving our community.  Each Tuesday we are distributing over 8,000 pounds of bread, fresh produce, and groceries to over 500 families in our community. Volunteers are busy collecting food from Albertson's Market, Target, San Diego Food Bank, and Feeding America Food Bank for our weekly distribution. In addition we have received donations from the U.S. Postal Food Drive, and U.S. Border Patrol Food Drive. During 2011 we distributed over 425,000 pounds of food to over 38,000 individuals, and gave away over 15,000 pieces of clothing with a combined value of over $785,000.00.


    Twice a year we hold giant rummage sales of household items donated to our center. The funds from these sales provide our center with funds to operate with, and also help provide scholarships for students at San Diego Academy.

  • PVAlerts!


    An essential step in Bringing  Hope to our Community is Building Bridges. We are divided by gender, ethnicity, socio-economic status, education, language, prejudice, the list goes on. Curiously, with the advance of technology, something that unites us are cellphones: the great equalizer if you will. PVAlerts! is an in-reach and outreach ministry that allows Paradise Valley Church to build bridges with text messaging.


    PVAlerts! is a one-to-many (SMS) text messaging system that allows Paradise Valley Church to send text messages to customized groups or lists of individuals: In the church, in the community or both. You may already receive text messages from schools, your Doctor's office, the County Emergency Alert system, or perhaps a commercial list you to which you subscribed.


    And, if you have a "smart phone" hat connects to the Internet, then the opportunities of providing you--directly to your phone--with helpful, community building information are nearly limitless: video clips, pictures, websites etc.
