First Presbyterian Church of Santa Rosa



    Worship Service ~ December 27, 2020

    Welcome to Online Worship

    If you are visiting our Online Worship for the first time, we welcome you. It is our hope that you encounter God and are enriched by your worship with us. The first video is a continuous worship experience eliminating the need to click on each video individually.

    The format below is designed for you to click your way through each element which together forms a cohesive and whole worship experience.

    At the end of worship are connection opportunities for children and youth.
