Some people are asking, “Is Paradise Church still around? I thought they closed down along with the Paradise Community Center.” Well, the answer is: far from shutting down, the Church continues to be an active part of the PV community.
Pastor Ric Lehman says that even though they lost the visibility, service opportunity, and fundraising ability that the PCC provided, “We have continued to fulfill our vision to serve both the expatriate community and the local, under-resourced community. We have just been very quiet about it.”
In fact, they have opened opening a second location on Sundays at the Westin Hotel in the Marina at 10:00 am. Pastor Ric says that they have been planning on this expansion for a couple years and it just seemed like the right time. “We’ve had successful Bible studies in the Marina over the years and many people commute from the Marina to our downtown location at Act II Theater. So why not just start a church in the Marina?
But it really isn’t another church. They want to make it clear that this is Paradise Church and all of its dreams and visions for the community, just with a more accessible location for those on the north side of PV or even in Nuevo or Bucerías. We are still the church that “Loves God. Loves People. Period.” But now with two locations to be inspired to let love live.”
The new time and location for Paradise Church is Sundays, 10:00 am at the Westin Hotel’s beautiful Conference Center.
Paradise Church Old Town will continue to hold worship services Sundays at 10:30 am on the Main Stage at Act II Theater.
Paradise Church is a non-denominational Christian Church centered on living life like Jesus Christ.
