ABOUT OUR CHURCH
Founded in 1869, First Presbyterian Church is centrally located at 5th and E in downtown San Rafael in Marin County. Since the early 1890’s, FPCSR has been active in social justice issues such as integration and advocacy for our immigrant populations, affordable housing and homelessness; we are a founding member of the REST emergency shelter. In recent years, we have launched service programs for disadvantaged children and youth.
At FPCSR, we offer a variety of worship opportunities including an 8:30 am Contemplative Service and a 10:00 am Lively Traditional Service each Sunday, and on the third Sunday of each month there is 5:00 pm SoulSong, Taizé Candlelight Healing Service.
We encourage people to engage in spiritual formation for it is in receiving the creative love of God that we are empowered to share that love with others. We come together as a community of faith in worship on Sundays, and many of us meditate during the week.
