  • POVUCC will be donating 12 family gift baskets to the Community Christian Service Agency (CCSA) Christmas Basket program this year! Each family gift basket will include food for a holiday meal and a Walmart or Target gift card to purchase perishable items. There is a Christmas tree in the narthex with tags for all these items. If you would like to participate, please take a tag(s) off the tree, purchase the item(s), and then place the item(s) in the box marked “CCSA Christmas Baskets for Families” in the narthex by December 9th, when the baskets will be packed. Baskets will then be delivered to CCSA on Dec. 12th. Thanks for your generous help and support!

  • Please join us for a four-week Advent Bible Study on Sundays beginning December 2 from 9:00 - 9:50 am in the Conference Room, facilitated by Cathy Nolin. We will be exploring different themes as we approach the birth of our Savior, Jesus. Week one’s theme will be “Watch”, exploring how we can watch for God to be revealed in the world and in our lives. Please bring your Bible, but we will also have some available. Sign up in the Fellowship Hall if you would like to attend. Hope you can join us!


  • All children, youth and young adults are invited to be a part of this year's Christmas pageant during worship on December 16th! There will be roles of every size for every interest level.
