Caring for our Home
First Presbyterian Church of San Diego is currently leading a capital campaign under the name Caring for our Home.

The campaign was launched with a letter to our congregation by our Senior Pastor, Dr. Jerry Andrews. The letter reads:
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God...and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory."
Thus begins John's Gospel. The Gospel tells the wonderful stories of the Word made flesh dwelling among us - stories of Jesus comforting the afflicted, challenging the proud, healing the sick, feeding the thousands, restoring the repentant, welcoming the children, calling and sending disciples. And the Gospel tells us the one great story - a loving God sent a crucified and risen Savior to reconcile the world to Himself.
This loving God, who sent Jesus to dwell among us, class us now to dwell among others. Within and with these buildings Jesus comforts, challenges, heals, feeds, restores, welcomes, calls and sends. All of this that all - all - may behold the glory of God.
We are embarking on a capital campaign - Caring for our Home - so that we can continue His work. Our desire is to repair, restore, and re-purpose our campus so that, in the heart of the city, we may bear a more effective witness to our God who has the city in His heart.
Nearly 150 years ago, the same year as the incorporation of San Diego, our loving God sent disciples to establish a new home here in the heart of the city. Over 100 years ago disciples built this home. Over 50 years ago disciples, aware of the struggles of the downtown, decided to stay here in the heart of the city because the city was in the heart of God.
Now we pledge to care for this home that, dwelling here, the city will see the glory of God. For God so loved the world...
