Doors of Opportunity


“A huge door of opportunity
for a good work has opened up here.”
(1 Corinthians 16:9)

As we proudly approach our 150th anniversary, the members of First Presbyterian Church of Santa
Barbara have a unique opportunity to reflect on a rich history of God’s blessings while preparing for a future of faith and service anew. Building on exciting new developments of recent years, we are being called to be more for our congregation and do more for our community.

Welcoming and Worshiping allows us to make much needed capital improvements within our doors, including:

  • Sanctuary improvements, including roof, water damage
  • REPAIR, pews, lighting and replacement of damaged doors
