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 October is the Peace & Global Witness offering - one of four church-wide annual special offerings. Your gifts will help more people experience the freedom and dignity that Christ wants for everyone. 50% of this offering will stay within our community and region and 50% will aid peacemaking efforts around the globe. This offering will be collected during worship each Sunday in October or contributions can be mailed to the church office.

Once again, we are proud to be a part of this excellent opportunity to give to others. As a church, we identify ourselves as a caring community which manifests God's compassion and care for each other, our local neighbors, the stranger among us, and our brothers and sisters around the world. Please support us by making a donation or joining us in our walk!
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)
Most high, glorious God, enlighten the darkness of my heart and give me, Lord, correct faith, certain hope, perfect charity, wisdom and perception; that I may do what is truly your most holy will.
. Francis of Assisi .
At its May 2018 meeting, Session approved the adoption of Stephen Ministry at OVPC. This ministry is a practical process-driven approach for equipping lay people in sharing Christ’s love and healing with those who are hurting. On May 20th, Elaine and Dale Smith, previously trained as Stephen Leaders, are commissioned to lead this ministry here in this congregation. More information will be forthcoming in the very near future. Listen as Rev. Dougherty performs the commissioning of this new ministry at OVPC.
