"Our diverse congregation is a great picture
of what heaven will be like and a picture to the world
around us of the love that can come through Christ."
"I really like to get to praise God
with my friends and I like Sunday kids class!"
"FirstSF has become a familiar refuge to me.
A place that the Lord has provided to show me more of His love
and sovereignty in more ways that I could imagine."
Birth - 5th Grade
The goal of firstKIDS ministry is to partner with parents in leading children to live and love for Jesus. Our mission is threefold: To always keep children safe and secure, to encourage and assist parents in their role as the primary disciplers of their children, and to teach God's Word to the children while at church!
6th - 12th Grades
The Youth Ministry at FirstSF is committed to partnering with families to develop youth (6th through 12th grades) who are fully committed to the cause of Christ, both now and into their adult years. Sunday Morning Classes, monthly Fun Fridays, Discipleship Groups, Workshops, and act as chaperones/drivers for youth outings and events.
The vision of this ministry is to identify and break down barriers that keep individuals with special needs and their families from being able to fully participate in the life of the church. It is our prayer that everyone in our church would understand that the Body of Christ includes those who don't talk, walk, think, feel, see, or hear the way other parts do.
English as a Second
Our ESL program is free, and is open to all non-native English speakers, regardless of proficiency. You do not need to be a member of FirstSF. If you are interested in our classes, please contact Eric & Sandra Gray at ESL@firstsf.com
Urban Bible Study
Each week, people from the streets and sro are welcomed for Bible Study, and worship! Following the lesson time, we all gather together for a meal and fellowship.
Young Adults & College Students
Sure...San Francisco offers you beautiful scenery, delicious fusion food, and all the hipster coffee you can drink, but many are still looking for real community and direction in their lives. The Young Professionals group at FirstSF is comprised of individuals and couples in their 20s and 30s. We have various events throughout the year such as Bible studies, seasonal retreats, lunches, and gatherings.
Worship & Arts Ministry
Band, Choir, A/V
We believe all people were created to worship and that there is room for different expressions of worship with the main goal being to make much of Jesus. You will see people from every socioeconomic, ethnic, educational, and generational background represented in our choir, band, and audiovisual teams. You will hear many different genres of music and experience various expressions of worship from liturgical readings to celebrations of baptism or communion. Along with the worship band and choir, an integral (if usually invisible) part of our Sunday morning service is the hard work of our Audiovisual & Technology Team.
