Come Worship with Us!

Worship Service

Each Sunday, Pioneer Ocean View UCC gathers to worship as an intergenerational faith community. 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. 


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, under the direction of our wonderful choir director, Andy Mathews. Our celebrated choir has received numerous invitations to perform in Ireland and most recently, Carnigie Hall! We also have guest musicians, like our Ukelele Ensemble, 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.
