  • On Sunday, November 19th, we will have our Thanksgiving Sunday POTLUCK luncheon following the worship service. There is a sign-up sheet posted on the hallway bulletin board - please bring your favorite dish to share with your church family and friends. (Please use disposable containers so that clean-up wil be minimal). Let's enjoy and celebrate our many blessings together!

  • Women's Fellowship will offer fun hula lessons on Sundays in November and December. Stay tuned for the exact start and end dates. The format will be similar to last year - lessons will be held every Sunday at 11:30 am for about 30 minutes. Hula class members will give a special performance during worship service on December 17! No experience required. Questions? contact Terri Arakawa, Laura Iori or Sherry Kataoka. 

  • On Sunday, November 5th, join us to learn about volunteer opportunities at POVUCC. After worship service, grab your lunch and stay for a brief discussion at the back of the Fellowship Hall. Leaders from our boards and committees will be available with information about opportuities to Be the Church. Regular meetings not for you? Consider joining our VBP. That would be our Volunteer Bull Pen, where everyone's talents are collectively applied to ad hoc committees.  Each of us has God-given gifts to share - follow your passions to the place that make you want to dance - makes you need to sing out praise to our God! No experience is required - only an openness to the many possibilities that God has in store for you in 2018! Let's Be the Church!
