Sanctuary Worship

Join First Church for Sunday worship in-person and livestreaming at 9 AM from the Mission Valley Sanctuary.

If you're looking for a less traditional worship service, we invite you to join us at 11 AM in Trotter Chapel for Tapestry, a new and creative experience.

The Main Sanctuary of First Church is a grand contemporary cathedral built in the Mid-Century Modern style. It is a unique building that gives our Sanctuary Worship a true sense of the greatness of the glory of God. Our worship features music from the largest pipe organ in San Diego along with magnificent choral music that will lift the spirit as part of our historic worship experience rooted in the Methodist Tradition.

The Weekly Messages are engaging and practical to everyday living. The preaching style is relaxed and challenging while focusing on the authority of Scripture and the presence of the Holy Spirit in our daily lives.
