HistoryHistoryA 150 year legacy.

From its beginning, First Church has been a stalwart for justice. Founded in 1851, Primera Iglesia broke from the Presbyterian Church to unite a new community that stood against “the sin of slavery”. Today our church continues to identify and resist ALL FORMS of societal injustices.
