  • STRENGTHEN THE CHURCH OFFERING: Sunday, May 23 will be Pentecost Sunday. On that day, POVUCC will collect the "Strengthen the Church" offering. The Strengthen the Church (STC) Offering reflects the shared commitment of people across the United Church of Christ to cooperatively build up the UCC. Conferences and the national setting equally share the gifts given by members and friends through their local congregations. The funds raised support leadership development, new churches, youth ministry, and innovation in existing congregations. Please consider making a donation to this offering anytime between now and May 23. Checks can be made payable to POVUCC with "Strengthen the Church Offering" written in the memo, while online payments may be made by utilizing the church's blue online donation button provided below. Please be certain to click the top drop-down menu and select "3002 Strengthen the Church."

  • Since October, we have offered monthly worship outdoors on the Point for those who are interested. For outdoor worship on May 2, we have decided to gather at our normal 10:00am hour rather than in the evening. This service will replace our Sunday morning Zoom worship FOR MAY 2 ONLY, but it will be available to view remotely by livestream. As with our Zoom services, the order of worship will be an abridged LIVE version of the pre-recorded resources that are emailed in our Saturday "Worship from Home" PDF. Covid-19 protocols will remain in place, and a reservation to attend will be required as space is limited. Please remember to list all participants from your household on the form to ensure space for each individual in your party. Reserve your spot today by completing this Google Form or calling the church office at 619-276-4881. Please note that registration will close at 4:00pm on Wednesday, April 28. Confirm your spot today! Contact us at office@povucc.org if you have any questions.
