Pipe Organs at First Church
Since the beginning in 1869, First Church has valued music in its worship and in our Sanctuary you can enjoy great concerts from the largest pipe organ in San Diego County.
The Trotter Chapel Organ is our newest addition of pipe organs and is located in the Trotter Chapel, a smaller venue with an excellent accoustic.
