  • The planning meeting of our San Diego Partnership Churches to discuss how to implement local racial justice programs (related to our SoCal Nevada Conference resolution to declare all our churches “White Supremacy Free Zones”) will now be a Zoom meeting this Sunday, September 4 at 5:00 pm to accommodate those who feel more comfortable meeting online.

  • Earlier this summer, our San Diego Partnership Churches met to discuss how to implement local racial justice programs (related to our SoCal Nevada Conference resolution to declare all our churches “White Supremacy Free Zones”).


    Similar to P4RJ from a few years ago, a subcommittee with pastoral leadership and representatives from each Partnership church is forming to move forward on this important effort. A planning meeting has now been set for September 4 at 5:00 pm at Emerald Hills Park. If you are interested in joining us as we work together on efforts to dismantle racism, please let Pastor Mary Sue or Nancy Shimamoto know; once details for this meeting have been finalized, we will share them here.


    Thank you for your continued support of seeking racial justice in our church and community.


  • We are deeply saddened to share that beloved POVUCC member Mitzie Norred died on August 20. The family plans to have a memorial service for Mitzie at POVUCC on Saturday, September 24. Additional details, including time of the service, will be shared once they have been finalized. Please hold Mitzie's family in your prayers during this time.


  • This Sunday, August 28th, @ 10 am we are continuing our new summer worship series guided by the “Gift of a Sacred Summer” resources from Free Range Worship. Led by the Board of Christian Education and friends, we are exploring the gifts of creativity, play, nature and community through a time of informal worship and interactive activities designed to help us grow closer to God. This week our focus will be on the Gift of Nature and will include singing, creating, sharing, a game and communion. Please join us this week in the Fellowship Hall!


  • Important:  Please join us in person for 8/21 and 8/28 (sorry, no Zoom access on these dates due to the interactive worship planned as part of our Summer Series). We regret any inconvenience.


  • Did you know that there is a shortage of aluminum cans because, during the pandemic, aluminum can recycling dropped 20%?

    Tossing cans in our blue bins is convenient, but last year 2.8 billion aluminum cans in California ended up in landfills, mostly because of contamination in the mixed recycling bin. POVUCC is resuming our CRV recycling as part of our Love of Creation goal. Please place your empty aluminum cans and plastic bottles in the designated receptacles in Fellowship Hall. We have a volunteer who will pick up our filled bags and take them to a Recycling Center.
