  • POVUCC is on the search now, seeking a part time Director of Faith Formation. We are looking for a leader who creates meaningful opportunities for people of all ages to grow in faith, with a special emphasis on children and youth. Please keep us in prayer as we look for our next intern. If you know anyone who might be interested, please let us know!


  • Please join us on Saturday, August 24th, as Uptown celebrates its 35 years serving the San Diego community. The Annual Gala will held at the beautiful Banker’s Hill Club from 4:00-8:00pm. This festive party will include dinner, a silent auction and entertainment by San Diego’s Voices of Our City Choir. During the cocktail hour, there will be a no-host bar and musical stylings by local pianist Jodie Harte. Tickets are $65 for senior members of POVUCC (ages 60 and better) and $75 for all others. Full priced tickets can be purchased online at http://uptowncsc.org/events.html and senior tickets from Linda Newton. All proceeds go directly to Uptown CSC to support our continued work in the San Diego community helping our neighbors in need. We will also help the silent auction by donating a Spa Basket put together by those interested in helping. A sign-up sheet will be put up soon on the bulletin board for purchase of bath and hygiene items that will be needed. Thanks in advance for all your help and support! Hope to see you at the Gala!


  • Let’s give our neighbors an extravagant welcome on July 4th! The Point will be open for fireworks viewing (gates open at 7:30pm). POVUCC volunteers will be offering snacks, soda and water. Please email the office if you would like to help (office@povucc.org). Invite your family and friends to come to our church’s spectacular Point to enjoy the fireworks! Don’t forget to bring lawn chairs and blankets.


  • As summer approaches, wouldn't you like to put a pair of sandals, flip flops or sneakers on the feet of homeless men, women and children so their feet may stay more protected? You can go to Amazon Smile on the CCSA website, www.ccsasandiego.org, and place an order to be delivered directly to the CCSA Clairemont center. Your generous donation will be distributed at CCSA’s Pacific Beach Homeless Outreach Facility. Amazon Smile will then donate back a small percentage of purchases, and those proceeds will continue to benefit our homeless population with food, clothing, and necessities.
