With the current atmosphere surrounding Covid-19, your Board of Ministries is requesting monetary gifts only this year to meet our goal of 24 backpacks. All of the shopping and packing of backpacks will be done by BOM members. Your gifts will be used to help CCSA meet their goal of gifting a total of 400 backpacks for children grades K-9 this year! If you would like to donate, or if you have any questions, please contact Pam Crusberg. Checks can be made out to POV with CCSA Backpacks on the memo line. Any donation will be deeply appreciated. We will be receiving donations from now through Sunday, August 1. On behalf of BOM, thank you for your continued generous support of this project and our neighborhood children.

  • he POVUCC Board of Christian Education is proud to offer faith-based anti-racism lessons to help families learn about and discuss what is truly in God’s heart regarding race and racism. Two different lesson packets have been created: one for younger children and the other created for older kids. Each packet contains six lessons that address God’s love for diversity, what it means to be a Christian living in a diverse world and the importance of spreading a message of acceptance and hope to all people. Lessons include a central message, scripture verses, questions to spark discuss, an activity such as viewing a video or craft project and a moment for prayer. It is our hope that you will share these lessons with your children, grandchildren and other young people in your life. Lesson packets can be downloaded from the POVUCC Virtual Prayground page at: http://povucc.org/virtual-prayground/. Special thanks to Kenya Bohn and Jilly Kodama for the many hours spent creating these important lessons.
