Sunday morning live stream

As part of our regathering process, we are currently live streaming our Sunday morning worship services. Every Sunday, the worship stream begins at 10am, but is also recorded and accessible to watch any time afterwards via the same link. 

You can access this week's live stream below. To access videos of previous services, click here.


Welcome to

SAN Diego First Church (SDFC)

Our Mission:  To Lift Up Christ

Our guiding principles are that we be formed by scripture, motivated by love and guided by prayer.

We emphasize a balanced spiritual life where we grow in our one-on-one relationship with God, in our relationship with other believers and in the way we live in a local and global marketplace.

We hope this site helps you get to know us better.

Regathering Plan

We are happy to announce that we are currently open for in-person attendance of our Sunday morning worship services. We will have a single service, indoors in the Brown Auditorium, at 10:00am. During this phase of our re-gathering there is still no children’s or youth programming, and no nursery. 

Two adult Sunday School classes have resumed meeting on-site, one at 9am in Bowes Conference Room, and the other at 11am in the Ellipse Chapel.   

All of the details regarding the safe practices and procedures (social distancing, face coverings, etc.) we have in place can be found here in the SDFC Regathering Plan

Many may not be ready or able to re-gather on Sunday mornings. Therefore, the services will continue to be streamed live online (and available for later viewing) to allow those who are unable to join us to participate from their homes. You can access the live-stream link each week here on the home page of our website or in our Sunday email newsletter.

Video Sermons

During this time when we are unable to gather together, the church is providing on-line material that follows the lectionary readings and keeps us connected to one another.  Click here to be taken to the weekly sermons.
