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.

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)

Welcome back to public worship! We are so glad to be able to be together once again. We will ask congregants to wear a mask while inside and will be observing current social distancing guidelines.
We will continue to live-stream our service on Facebook and make it available afterwards on our YouTube channel. In consideration of our online congregants, we ask that you be seated and ready for worship by 9:20.
Educators and kids have had a rough 15 months, and it won't get easier when they all go back to the classroom in September. Every school district in the nation is worried about the impact of so many lost school days on our country's students. It's predicted that some students won't be ready for the next school year, and a few of those might give up. Our help is needed.
Mariners Methodist is starting an after-school tutoring and mentoring program this fall. Students will be bused over to Mariners' beautiful new Hope Center from Selbyville Middle School and Indian River High School where volunteers will help them with homework, work with them on their science projects, help them practice a speech, or give them some tips on college applications. Then Mariners will serve them dinner and take them home.
Volunteer applications and program descriptions are almost ready to disperse. Mariners have already scheduled their training sessions though. The dates are: August 18 10 am - 12 noon, and August 25 6 pm -8 pm. If you are planning to participate in this worthwhile program, please save one of those training dates. Contact Jen Read for more information.
