  • A message from Stephen Colon:
    "I have been enjoying my time getting to know you all, my new friends at Pioneer Ocean View UCC--and I want to get to know you even better!  Whether you've got feedback to share, ideas for service, or would like to just like to chat, it'd be a real honor to get to spend time with you. Please contact the church office if you are interested in meeting with Stephen!

  • The tragic loss of over 100 lives, and counting, and destruction of Lahaina Town on Maui, has shaken all of us, whether we have family ties to the beautiful Hawaiian Islands, or have just vacationed there. Last Sunday, we collected over $500 from our generous congregation! Please donate online to POVUCC via the drop down menu of Maui fire relief, or write a check to POVUCC with Maui in the memo line. You can also donate directly to the Hawaii Conference UCC And above all, please pray for the families who have lost loved ones, homes, businesses, and their homeland.

  • August 19th, Saturday at 2pm we're going Bowling at Belmont Lanes in Belmont Park (3146 Mission Blvd.) Costs covered by the church. August 27th, Sunday at 9am we're cooking a Toban Lunch at POVUCC. We all enjoy lunch every week after service, so this is our opportunity to pay it forward. Come help prep and serve lunch for everyone at church. Just bring yourself at 9 am, we'll get all the groceries. Reach out to Kristi or Camille if you have questions. (kmlin12 @ gmail dot com or pederson.camille @ gmail dot com) Feel free to bring friends! See you there! 

  • The Prayer Circle will meet Tuesday, August 15, at 10:00 am on Zoom. All are invited to attend! You do not need to share and can simply attend to lift up the joys and concerns shared by others within the group. We hope to see you there! Please contact the office if you need the ZOom link.

  • On August 18, POVUCC seniors are invited to share a bento lunch and an informal time of fellowship together at Garden Villas in Chula Vista. All are welcome, and rides are available for those in the Chula Vista area. Please RSVP to Coreen Fujinami. We hope to see you there!


    Note: In addition to enjoying a delicious meal and meaningful fellowship, you will also have the opportunity to contribute to the all-church weaving project that was started on July 30th. This project, spearheaded by Kristi Lin, not only aims to craft a functional work of art but also involve the entire POVUCC community in its creation.
