Come Worship with Us!

Worship Service


Each Sunday, Pioneer Ocean View UCC gathers to worship as an intergenerational faith community, both in person and on Zoom. Our service is based on the traditional Christian liturgy of the Christian church and includes congregational singing, prayer, time for children, special music by our choir and/or soloists, and Scripture-based sermons that relate to our daily lives. Even those without a traditional church background will feel comfortable worshipping at Pioneer Ocean View UCC. 




Masks are welcome and available at the door should you choose to use one. Please let greeters know if you prefer physical distancing.  


To enhance ventilation, windows and doors will be open and fans will be in operation. Remember to dress accordingly.  Out of concern for everyone's health and safety, please plan to join us for Worship via Zoom if you are experiencing any COVID or other respiratory symptoms or are concerned you have been exposed to COVID.


Let us continue to care for one another!




Choral and instrumental music has an important place at Pioneer Ocean View UCC. Our choir prepares anthems for worship services, as well as for seasonal events. We also have guest musicians who share their gifts with us in worship from time to time.



Just as Jesus broke bread with His Disciples, we honor this tradition and break bread with one another during the first Sunday of every month. 



Children are welcome here! Every Sunday, children join us in worship, with their own unique "Prayground" area for learning, listening, and worshipping in our beautiful sanctuary, alongside the adults and teens.  


A room for infants and their parents is available just behind the Sanctuary for nursing, diaper changes and toddler time.



Devices to amplify sound are available for thos needing assistance with hearing. Our restrooms are ADA compliant and our chancel is wheelchair-accessible.


Please visit our "What to Expect" page for a detailed description of a typical Sunday at Pioneer Ocean View United Church of Christ.


Sample Sermons 


It is our vision here at Pioneer Ocean View UCC to ignite hearts everywhere with God’s love…. EVERYWHERE!


So no matter where you are on God’s beautiful planet — right here in sunny San Diego or far, far away —  we invite you to listen to a past sermon.  We hope you’ll find inspiration and comfort in these messages.
