  • Merry Christmas greetings to our church family! If you would like to share a Christmas card with our awesome church family, you are welcome to hang it on the tree in the narthex. There will be paper clip “hangers” on the welcome table just inside the main sanctuary doors. Save postage, save our forests, and still wish everyone at POVUCC a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


  • A special offering will be collected for the UCC Christmas Fund on Sunday, December 22nd and at the Christmas Eve Service on Tuesday, December 24th .


  • On Tuesday, December 24th, our sanctuary doors will be open at 5:30pm, inviting all to worship with our church family. This year, Pastor Mary Sue brings a tradition from her hometown, a Moravian Lovefeast, to our Christmas Eve service. In addition to carols and candle lighting, this service includes an “agape meal” of a baked sweet bun and coffee. A special offering will be collected for the UCC Christmas Fund.


  • Please join us on Sunday, December 22nd for a very special Christmas Cantata called “Little Lion, Little Lamb” by Heather Sorenson. Under the direction of Andy Mathews and music accompaniment by Chad Kemp, the POVUCC Choir, children, & friends will present the Christmas story through song during our regular worship service time. ALL are invited! Following our musical worship service, please join us for Fellowship Hour in Fellowship Hall where a “special guest” will spread Christmas cheer, gifting the children of POVUCC.


  • An important part of our Christmas celebration is a warm, bold, red display of poinsettias throughout the sanctuary. The poinsettias for the Christmas services are placed there by members of the Pioneer Ocean View Church family in dedication to the glory of God or in memory of loved ones. We invite you to share in this annual tradition. Please purchase 1 or 2 poinsettia(s) to be placed in the sanctuary for worship services on December 15th, 22nd & 24th. Cost is $10/plant. Please complete the order form included in the bulletin, make your check payable to POVUCC and place it in the offering pouch with form. Thank you!
