IT'S EASY TO FIND US!!

WELCOME!

 

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 been seen and felt in all aspects of ministry here.

 

We all invite you to be a part of our life and ministry.

The Worship Committee  meets monthly to plan and execute worship services and all areas that pertain to worship at OVPC.  The committee includes the pastor, chair of greeters, chair of ushers, flower committee chair, membership chair, an elder, organist, and members-at-large.  We look at the past services for what was done well, and then look at the upcoming services to plan.  We end the meeting by choosing the hymns for the next 5-6 weeks.  All are invited to join us as we seek to enhance the worship of this congregation in ways that encourage all of us to worship God joyfully and with reverence.  Learn More
