We All Invite You to be a Part of our Life and Ministry.
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.

Shaped by God, We Love and Serve
May our gifts be a source of light, in a world that has learned to love darkness
Each of you should give as you have decided in your heart to give. You should not be sad when you give, and you should not give because you feel forced to give. God loves the person who gives happily.
(2 Corinthians 9:7, NCV)

This survey lists many of the activities and committees at OVPC. We are a small church with a small staff, and we depend on our members and friends to aid with the functions in the life of the church. Please carefully review and prayerfully consider the items listed and indicate those areas you would be interested in helping or serving. You may also write-in items not listed on the form. This survey is an excellent way to indicate your interests, willingness to serve, and share your experience and strengths.
The February Mission Project Sponsored By Our Deacons
THE SOUPER BOWL OF CARING - 2024!
Deacon’s Mission for February 2024: Souper Bowl of Caring - Sunday February 11th, will be the NFL Super Bowl (wear your favorite jersey!). Ocean View Presbyterian Church will have their own Souper Bowl of Caring during the month of February. The Deacons ask that everyone bring cans or cases of soup to the church and deposit them into the container marked for the Sharing Pantry!
OVPC's Souper Bowl of Caring will run through February. If you would like to make a monetary donation, please make checks payable to Ocean View Presbyterian Church with Souper Bowl of Caring in the memo/note section. Donations will support the OVPC - Sharing Pantry.
OVPC Is More Than a Church
In 2003, the congregation of OVPC brought a dream to life and opened Memorial Hall - fully funded by the members by the generosity of their spirit and the fierce dedication of their time and talents in fundraising efforts. The purpose of this hall was never meant to be strictly for use by the church, but, a place for our community that can be rented for extremely low rates so that their non-profit groups could have a place to meet. We have a great many HOA's that meet on our campus as well as other community service groups and recovery/support groups. If you are looking for a place to meet, please visit our facilities page or contact the church office directly. We would be delighted to host your organization!
Our historic sanctuary, our most holy space, is also available for weddings, funerals, and memorial services .
This ongoing ministry provides non-perishable food to those in our community suffering from food insecurity. Monetary donations are appreciated but we also take contributions of food. Contributions can be dropped off in the containers located outside of the church office during normal hours. Items needed include:
Spaghetti Noodles Spaghetti Sauce
Canned Vegetables Canned Soup
Canned Tuna Peanut Buter
Canned Fruit Mac & Cheese
