This session will focus on our local First Presbyterian Church in Downtown San Diego. We will learn more about our missions and ministries, and how we worship, study and serve the Lord. This will be a great time to learn more about ways to connect with others and be active in church life.

3:30 – 4:30:
In the final session, Pastor Jerry Andrews will share "My Heart, Christ's Home" – his testimony of beginning and continuing in an intimate and life changing relationship with the Savior. For those who decide membership is for them, there will be a chance to meet some of the Elders (Leaders) from First and share our faith journey and desire to become members of this faith community.
