Our Discussion Book:

Small Great Things: A Novel
by: Jodi Picoult

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • With richly layered characters and a gripping moral dilemma that will lead readers to question everything they know about privilege, power, and race, Small Great Things is the stunning new page-turner from Jodi Picoult.

“[Picoult] offers a thought-provoking examination of racism in America today, both overt and subtle. Her many readers will find much to discuss in the pages of this topical, moving book.”—Booklist (starred review)

Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital with more than twenty years’ experience. During her shift, Ruth begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she’s been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don’t want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request, but the next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or does she intervene? 

Ruth hesitates before performing CPR and, as a result, is charged with a serious crime. Kennedy McQuarrie, a white public defender, takes her case but gives unexpected advice: Kennedy insists that mentioning race in the courtroom is not a winning strategy. Conflicted by Kennedy’s counsel, Ruth tries to keep life as normal as possible for her family—especially her teenage son—as the case becomes a media sensation. As the trial moves forward, Ruth and Kennedy must gain each other’s trust, and come to see that what they’ve been taught their whole lives about others—and themselves—might be wrong.

With incredible empathy, intelligence, and candor, Jodi Picoult tackles race, privilege, prejudice, justice, and compassion—and doesn’t offer easy answers. Small Great Things is a remarkable achievement from a writer at the top of her game.,

Easter Sunrise Service - April 17 - On the Beach at 6:30 am

Join us for a beautiful Easter Sunrise Service ON THE BEACH! Service starts at 6:30 am and we will see the Sunrise over the water! Bring a towel or beach chair, a camera and your family. (The beach can get quite crowded, so masks are highly recommended). Pastor Emily Denmark McGee to give an Easter morning message. 

Beach Access/Parking: Parking at the church (follow signs and parking attendant's directions). Beach access located directly across from the church and Ocean Drive. There will be signs out, lanterns lighting the path and people providing directions. 

There will be a 10:00 am Easter Service in the Sanctuary as well. 

Maundy Thursday Service
April 14 at 7:00 pm

Join us for a special night time service. 

A recommitment to obeying that command is a part of why we gather. We remember Jesus, and we remember his words, and we once again pledge to learn to live by the command. In other words, on this night, we gather and offer ourselves to be gathered up in Jesus by choosing to live by the call to love.

“Maundy” comes from “mandatum,” which is Latin for “command.” And what was the commandment? John reminds us that it was to love. Love one another as I have loved you. This isn’t just good advice; this isn’t how to overcome division or to move toward reconciliation; this isn’t just good human relations practice. No, this is a commandment. Can you command love? Jesus thought you could, apparently.

Good Friday Prayer Vigil on
April 15 - 11:00 am to 3:00 pm

Good Friday. 

How do you capture this moment in all its horror and glory? 

How do you communicate the depth of suffering and the height of sacrifice and love that this day represents? 

The short answer is that you can’t. Not completely. Not in a way that becomes as transformative as we would like. And yet there is so much here that every attempt can bring us something of the day when it is done with sincerity and respect.

Oceanview Church's Sanctuary is open from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm for quiet prayer, with periodic music or video for reflection. Come at any time, stay as long as you like, experience a Prayer Vigil.

Palm Sunday - April 10th

Here we are again.


We are on the brink of the remembrance of the central event of our faith. Holy Week and Easter shape our understanding of who we are as followers of Jesus Christ more than any other single event. We are, as others have said, Easter people living in a Good Friday world. We are defined by this sacrifice and by this gift of eternity. 

And it all begins with Palm Sunday.

Our Discussion Book:
Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race
by: Margot Lee Shetterly

The #1 New York Times bestseller

The phenomenal true story of the black female mathematicians at NASA whose calculations helped fuel some of America’s greatest achievements in space—a powerful, revelatory history essential to our understanding of race, discrimination, and achievement in modern America. The basis for the smash Academy Award-nominated film starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monae, Kirsten Dunst, and Kevin Costner.

Before John Glenn orbited the earth, or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of dedicated female mathematicians known as “human computers” used pencils, slide rules and adding machines to calculate the numbers that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space.

Among these problem-solvers were a group of exceptionally talented African American women, some of the brightest minds of their generation. Originally relegated to teaching math in the South’s segregated public schools, they were called into service during the labor shortages of World War II, when America’s aeronautics industry was in dire need of anyone who had the right stuff. Suddenly, these overlooked math whizzes had a shot at jobs worthy of their skills, and they answered Uncle Sam’s call, moving to Hampton, Virginia and the fascinating, high-energy world of the Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory.

Even as Virginia’s Jim Crow laws required them to be segregated from their white counterparts, the women of Langley’s all-black “West Computing” group helped America achieve one of the things it desired most: a decisive victory over the Soviet Union in the Cold War, and complete domination of the heavens.

Starting in World War II and moving through to the Cold War, the Civil Rights Movement and the Space Race, Hidden Figures follows the interwoven accounts of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson and Christine Darden, four African American women who participated in some of NASA’s greatest successes. It chronicles their careers over nearly three decades they faced challenges, forged alliances and used their intellect to change their own lives, and their country’s future.

2020 McKnight Distinguished Artist award, Marcie Rendon

Nominee, Mystery Writer's of America― THE G.P. PUTNAM’S SONS SUE GRAFTON MEMORIAL AWARD

In The Margins Recommended Fiction

Her name is Renee Blackbear, but what most people call the 19-year-old Ojibwe woman is Cash. She lived all her life in Fargo, sister city to Minnesota’s Moorhead, just downriver from the Cities. She has one friend, the sheriff Wheaton. He pulled her from her mother’s wrecked car when she was three. Since then, Cash navigated through foster homes, and at 13 was working farms, driving truck. Wheaton wants her to take hold of her life, signs her up for college. She gets an education there at Moorhead State all right: sees that people talk a lot but mostly about nothing, not like the men in the fields she’s known all her life who hold the rich topsoil in their hands, talk fertilizer and weather and prices on the Grain Exchange. In between classes and hauling beets, drinking beer and shooting pool, a man who claims he’s her brother shows up, and she begins to dream the Cities and blonde Scandinavian girls calling for help.

PB County Food Project




Please bring your PBC Food Project Food Bags, filled with healthy canned goods (see pbcfp website below for list of needed items)

Drive to the Upper Level. Please stay in your car and a masked volunteer will take your food donations (in bags) from your car. Then you will drive off. Easy. Needed.

Our partner food pantries are struggling due to the added number of people needing food as many unemployed person's federal benefits run out. With the possible elimination of eviction protection, the number of homeless and hungry people will likely increase. Therefore, we need to raise funds. The money raised will be used to provide the much-needed food without putting any of our Food Project volunteers in an environment that could endanger their health.

From April to June we were able to raise some $30,000, which supported our partner pantries by giving them cash to purchase much needed items in bulk for their distribution to the hungry. We were also able to provide some 33,000 meals of chicken ramen noodle soup. The ten pallets of soup went a long way in the food programs of CROS Ministries, More Than Conquerors Life Center, Extended Hands Community Outreach and the MCC food pantry! 

Please help by making a financial donation. Here is how you can give:
