World Communion Sunday

October 3, 2021

Around the globe, countless gifted and qualified people face financial obstacles that hinder them from preparing for the vocation God has given them, especially youth and young adults. For ethnic students who will be the first generation in their families to attend college, or for those people of color who haven’t historically had access to resources that make higher education possible, the road toward education has often been unwieldy.

What would it look like if the church today imitated Jesus’ affirmation of the full dignity and God-given potential of all women and men—especially those who’ve historically been assigned to the world’s margins? On World Communion Sunday your giving helps to provide scholarships for national and international graduate students whom God has gifted to learn and to serve.

Join us .... on World Communion Sunday - online in Home Worship or in-person at Oceanview Church.

September 18 Window Workshop

The EDC and Oceanview's Leadership Council invite you to be a part of Oceanview UMC's future. Our current partnership has given us a "window" of time to rethink our mission to the community. Who do we want to be? How do we want to engage with the world as a group of disciples of Jesus? Come, let us eat, and talk, and fellowship, and pray together for a way forward that is faithful to our past.

Oceanview Handbells

Oceanview Handbells augment the music ministry using our wonderful four octave set of handbells to worship and praise God.

We are a mixed age group of beginning to intermediate ringers that rehearse on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 pm in the Sanctuary. None of the members are professional musicians; they give of their own time to rehearse weekly and perform with the group.

Oceanview Handbells is a great place for ringers to develop their ringing and music reading skills. The group is designed so that ringers of all ages can participate and enhance their abilities. Ringing exercises are used to develop confidence and the repertoire is chosen to teach all of the various ringing techniques used in handbell music today.

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:
