FPC ARTS Series - 2019

A long-held mission of the First Presbyterian Church of San Diego is to glorify the Lord through excellence in the arts. Our location, history, habits, and values point toward this calling to encourage the flourishing of the arts among our members and within our city. We strive to host a strong variety of events that invite all to appreciate the creative gifts of God.
