    Summer Sundays at First Church will be a time to remember, bringing new opportunities for fellowship and fun!




    During the hot summer months, we move from three to two worship services in the Sanctuary: 

    8 AM - Communion every Sunday
    10 AM - Regular worship with Communion 1st Sunday of the month.

    This schedule is only in effect for the summer months beginning July 2 and ending September 3.

    Water's Edge Worship in the Cove remains at the regular 9:30 AM time.


    Bible Study

    JULY 2 - SEPTEMBER 3 | 9:05 - 9:55 AM | LINDER HALL 2

    Join this Sunday Morning Bible Study led by Luke Winslow, who is part of our First Church community, along with his wife, Addie. Luke is on the faculty in the School of Communications at San Diego State University. The study is not sequential, so you can attend as your schedule allows!

    Carver Cossey Mini-Concert & Lunch

    JULY 9 | 11 AM - 12:30 PM | LINDER HALL 

    Our special guest, Carver Cossey, helps kick off our summer schedule. Carver will lead the congregation in song during our Sanctuary Worship and then, together with our own Stephen Price, perform a mini-concert in Linder Hall with a catered lunch.



    Country Fair

    JULY 23 | 11 AM | LINDER HALL

    What could be better than a church potluck and ice cream social during the warm days of July? Join us for worship and bring a dish to share at the all-church potluck following the 10 AM worship service. Ice cream and all the toppings will be provided. Our Country Fair will include a pie-baking contest, with prizes given for first, second, and third place.  A line-dancing lesson, plus fun games for all ages.
