First Presbyterian Church of Santa Rosa

    The Story

    Love God and love your neighbor. Jesus made it sound simple, but we know it’s not. So each day we learn what this means through celebrations, how we choose to grow, express care, and serve our community and beyond. The story of our church is a story of ever-deepening relationships.

    New 2018 Sermon Series

    New 2018 sermon series

    On January 14 we begin a five-week sermon series on prayer – Sacred Spaces.

    There is something about prayer that is bigger than our everyday lives. It is mystical and soul deep; it connects us to God, to the world, and to ourselves in ways that we never could have imagined. When we pray it creates sacred space – if only for a moment – a place where the human and divine interact.

    This winter we’ll walk through this doorway and into prayers of those who have come before. Through their words we will seek to find our own and create necessary space to express the cries of our soul and hear the voice of God in turn.

    The Good News

    This Christmas

    This season of Advent, we find ourselves practicing the spiritual disciplines of waiting and trusting as we anticipate the birth of Jesus in the midst of turmoil and strife. Just as the people of God needed to hear good news in their own day, we too need to hear and be reminded of God’s messages of good news for us.

    We Care

    Before and After the Fire

    The week of October 8, 2017, the face of Sonoma County changed forever. Monster winds stoked a series of deadly wildfires that roared into Santa Rosa and the Sonoma Valley, surprising sleeping residents and wiping out whole neighborhood. By the time the devastating blazes were contained nearly three weeks later, they had charred more than 114,000 acres, destroyed 5,300 homes and killed 23 people, becoming the worst wildfires in state history.
