New to First Church

Rev. Trudy D. Robinson and the inside of the First United Methodist Church of San Diego sanctuary

Welcome Home!

Welcome to First Church, an inclusive community of people on a journey of faith with Jesus Christ. We're here for you if you've never been to church before or are considering a change. Here, we hope you’ll find your spiritual home.

First United Methodist Church of San Diego is a community that believes all individuals are of sacred worth. For us, “All means all.” God is at work among all people, moving us toward greater understanding, shared mission, and mutual respect. This community of faith invites you to join this journey as followers of Jesus Christ. 

We have a place for you: small groups, multiple worship services and styles, weekly study groups, community ministries, and mission opportunities.

And, we continue to find new ways of being in Christian community in a digital world. We’re bringing the kin-dom of God to wherever we are, much like the first days of Christ's church. If you are curious, check out our plans for the FUTURE OF THE CHURCH.
