Pastor Dwight Perry and his wife Diana were welcomed to Lucerne Community Church in March of 2017. Both Pastor and his wife were raised in a church by their believing parents. Both made confessions of faith and have been active members of the church most of their adult lives. Pastor Dwight and Diana have served churches on the west coast for over 30 years. Dwight has served as an education superintendant, an Evangelist, an Elder and a Pastor. Following their retirement in 2015, Pastor Dwight felt called to return to the ministry and was united by the Lord with the Lucerne Community Church.
Dwight received a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies, a Masters of Divinity Degree, and a Ph.D. in Church History. The Perry’s have one son and five grandchildren. Dwight and Diana enjoy entertaining, reading, and being with friends and family.
Dwight’s favorite passage of scripture is Proverbs 3:5, 6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
Diana prefers Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”

Whether you intentionally came to this website, or you found it while surfing looking for something else, we are grateful you have found us. Please take a few minutes and peruse our site. Visit our About Us page for more information about the church and view our Doctrinal Statement page for more information about what we believe.
The Lucerne Community Church is an independently-governed, non-denominational church that uses the Bible as our source of authority in all things. We believe the scripture teaches the appointment of local individuals as Elders, or overseers, of the church. In 2017 our church sought the assistance of an experienced pastor following the departure of its former Pastor. My wife, Diana, and I answered the call of the Lord in March of 2017 to serve as the new Pastor of the Lucerne church.
Because we are not a part of a large denomination, we decide what topics to study and what needs our local congregation has. Our worship is simple and Christ centered. If you choose to worship with us, do not be surprised if someone gives you a godly hug. We love the Lord because He first loved us and gave His life for us. And we love you because He loves us.
The first Friday of each month, we host a movie night at 5:30 pm. We sell hot dogs, chips, and a soda for a small price to raise money for our Youth Ministry. Plus, we provide a free bag of popcorn to all who attend. We also host a monthly breakfast potluck on the second Saturday of each month at 9:00. Additionally, we offer Bible classes for all age groups on Sunday morning at 9:45 in our fellowship hall and classrooms. Finally, A Wednesday night Bible Study group gathers in the clubhouse of a local manufactured home park. Please visit our Connect page or call the church office at (707) 274-8326 for further information on meeting times and addresses of other activities.
In His love,
Pastor Dwight <><
