Support for LGBTQ+
We have marched in our local Gay Pride parade every year here in Santa Rosa and sometimes in SF too.
Sunday, August 7th
On Sunday, August 7, First Congregational Church Santa Rosa will be observing the 77th anniversary of one of the saddest days in human history – the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the death of 200,000 human beings. Since 1945, hydrogen bombs, more than 3,000 times as powerful as the Hiroshima bomb, have been developed. Detonate one and burn greater New York City to a crisp. Detonate a few and condemn our planet to a nuclear winter ending life as we know it.
Redwood Empire Food Bank
For the past several months, our Outreach Team has been scheduling group work days at our local food bank! If you're interested in joining us next time, email our church office at email@example.com and we will contact you. It's a fun, busy, and day and rewarding day!
Black Lives Matter
Our Peace Pole
Our church has a Peace Pole in the front of our sanctuary. A Peace Pole is an internationally recognized symbol of the hopes and dreams of the entire human family, standing vigil in silent prayer for peace on earth.

More Ways We Take Action
Council and Committees
Serving on committees and church council is a very important part of an active church.
Most church activities are impossible without a structure supporting them. Our council, which is a governing board, and the committees provide that structure. If you're interested in serving on a committee, please let our pastor or moderator know.
When a member of our church family has a need for help with meals, we get the Meal Train going! We can always use volunteers to prepare meals (or get Take Out) for those in need.
Please contact the church office to learn more or email Judy Adams.
Other Opportunities to Serve
Our congregation has many ways to serve. Is something calling you? Listen inside yourself. Might it be helping with hospitality, praying for others, assisting with special projects, sending cards, etc? Whatever is calling you, we hope you'll trust the spirit and respond "Yes!"
