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.

    Lent & Easter Sermon Series

    Lent and Easter Sermon Series

    During the seven weeks of Lent and Easter, we will explore stories of Jesus and the meals He shared here on Earth. Each of these meals was more than food shared β€” it was a way for Jesus to connect to men and women, to reconnect communities to each other, and to reveal a bit of God’s kingdom here and now.

    Jesus used meals to invite humanity into conversation, to extend grace, redemption, and salvation to those who never expected it.

    All of Lent reflects this invitation: we are invited and are encouraged to invite others into repentance, reflection, thankfulness, praise, and honesty β€” into new life that is not defined by death.

    The 40 Days of Lent



    The Way of New Life

    Lent is an invitation to move inward and open ourselves up to the longing of our souls and the stirring of our hearts. Lent turns our attention to the spiritual realities of life. It calls us to the way of the cross, the way of new life born out of a death to our old life. Lent is an invitation to change. Join us on the journey.

    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.
