Help Us Build a New Playground


Christ Is Salvation Church

It is our mission to serve our community.  We have been in Thermal for over 20 years and we desire to love and serve our surrounding community that encompasses towns in the eastern Coachella Valley which are some of the poorest in the State of California. 

Our location provides a minimum of 10 weekly services and meetings which include Childcare, youth and children’s ministries.  We hold weekly Awana Kids Club and Youth Nights, as well Vacation Bible Schools, Family Fun Festivals 3 times throughout the year where we give out bikes, toys, and food.  We host lunch on Thanksgiving Day where we give turkeys and food boxes, and we give 1000’s of toys on Christmas Day. Our events are always free. Additionally, we partner with other organizations to provide food boxes for our community weekly and monthly.  Our church is always available to help families in need. 

Currently, Thermal has no playground.  The playground and the nearby ball field have been closed due to construction of new buildings.  The plans to develop a park in Thermal have also been terminated, we feel as the local church we have a responsibility to provide for our community.  Our church is a pillar in our community, people know to come here when they are in need, kids come to play during services, after school and while their parents pick up food boxes, and at our free special events.

Our church and outdoor play equipment were built in the 1950’s. Recently upon inspection our play equipment was deemed unsafe and we had to remove it.  We need a safe place where the kids of our community can be healthy, active and safe.  It will take at least $40,000 to build this playground and we our looking forward to our communities help in accomplishing this goal.

We were involved in a video contest and although we did not win we were still awarded $15,000 – Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPS) and national non-profit KaBOOM! awarded Christ Is Salvation Church a $15,000 Let’s Play Community Construction Grant that will be used to build a playground for the community of Thermal, California.
