The Ocean View Presbyterian Church is a congregation focused on growing in the faith and living out that faith in mission to others and to each other. Not content with simply reciting doctrine, we have committed ourselves to looking into the Scriptures so as to uncover the ongoing story of our faith. We seek to be a part of that story. The congregation as a whole, and each of its committees, is actively engaged in doing mission, and on communicating in real ways the good news of Jesus Christ.
Ocean View Presbyterian is a historic church, dating back to 1856. We have a long and proud tradition, but seek to take that tradition and move into the future with it. We also have a wonderful friendship and fellowship with each other that can be seen and felt in all aspects of ministry at OVPC.
We all invite you to be a part of our life and ministry.

The mission project sponsored by our Board of Deacons for May is the Pentecost Offering. This is one of four churchwide special offerings of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Your offering will be accepted throughout the month of May using the special envelopes provided in the bulletin (can also be obtained from the usher) or you can make an online donation by linking to the PC(USA) Pentecost offering page. Please visit this page for more information about this how your gifts are used.
The Christian Education committee continues to plan upcoming events and is very interested in the interests of the congregation. If you have an idea for a class (could be just one session) or something you would like to learn more about, please reach out to either Pastor Terry or Karen Hamilton. All ideas are appreciated!
We Choose to Love, rather than Fear the immigrant, the stranger among us.
‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’
Matthew 25:45 (NRSV)
Here O Lord, is my poor heart, an empty vessel ready to be filled with your grace. Here, O Lord, is my sinful soul, waiting to be refreshed by your love. Here, O Lord, is my mouth, created for your praise and ready to proclaim the glory of your name, now and forever.
Dwight Lyman Moody
