  • As we progress through the season of Lent, we look forward to the Resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday.  One of our beautiful traditions is the Easter Flower cross!  Our flower cross master, Brita Lindstrom, is looking for a few helpful assistants who can come to church on Easter Sunday, April 17th, at 8:30 AM to assemble the cross. If you have some lovely flowers from your garden that you would like to contribute, please bring them early!   Please email Brita or contact the church office, if you would like to help.

  • The POVUCC choir will once again rehearse beginning on Thursday, March 24 at 6:30 p.m., in the sanctuary. Our new Director of Music, Dr. Joseph Han will be leading rehearsals. Any and everyone is invited to attend, whether you're a current choir member, previous member, or have never been a member. Now is a great time to join this group and sing praises to God as they prepare to debut a new musical selection on Easter Sunday. 

  • The Prayer Circle will meet on Tuesday, March 15 at 10:00am. All are invited to attend. You do not need to share and can simply attend to lift up the joys and concerns shared by others within the group. We hope to see you there! Contact Gwen Momita or the church office for details on how to attend.

  • Village Arts Theater 
    2787 State Street 
    Carlsbad, CA 92008 
    February 11 - March 13, 2022 

    A play being performed at the Village Arts Theater in Carlsbad, Desert Rock Garden is a fictionalized historical story of a young orphan and a Japanese immigrant who forge a friendship in the Topaz Relocation Center, one of the camps where people of Japanese descent were incarcerated during World War II. This is an unforgettable story of persistence and the importance of art in the most difficult of times. 

    During the duration of the play's run, an art installation by our church member Kristi Lin will be on display in the street-facing windows of the theater. Reserved tickets are required to attend the play and can be purchased here. However, it is free to view Kristi's art from outside the theater at any time.
