Who We Are

We are called to be Christ's partners in reconciliation, sharing the good news of God's radically inclusive, welcoming love.

As a More Light Presbyterian congregation, we strive to provide a welcome for LGBTQ people.  
As a multicultural community, we are intentional about living as the Beloved Community.
As a multi-age family, we recognize the gifts children and youth bring to worship and community life.


This Week at First Church

Join us for Sunday Worship at 10:00 AM

Currently, we are inviting a series of guest preachers to share in our Sunday worship. This Sunday, February 18th, we welcome Rev. Laurie Garrett-Cobbina, who will preach on Genesis 19. Rev. Laurie's sermon is entitled, "Recognizing the Lie." She is a professor of Pastoral Care and Education at San Francisco Theological Seminary. We also welcome back Joan Cifarelli as our guest musician and worship accompanist.
