History

First Presbyterian Church of San Leandro was organized in 1866. The present sanctuary was built in 1926, adding the youth center and educational wing in 1953 and 1955 respectively.

With each challenge we have encountered, we became stronger in our faith. We invite you to become a part of the church today and a piece of its history tomorrow.

Who We Are

We are everyday, garden-variety Christians. We represent all age groupings, numerous religious traditions and a variety of nationalities and ethnic backgrounds. We share a desire to praise and worship God, as we strive to hear God’s voice and be used in advancing God’s realm of love, righteousness, justice, mercy and peace. Our theology is rooted in the Bible and we believe in a Triune God, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

We are members of the Presbyterian Church (USA), a branch of the reformed Protestant tradition. We are governed by our Session consisting of twelve active elders. Twenty-four deacons serve as the compassionate arm of Jesus Christ in the church and community. Both of these groups are elected by the members of the church. First Presbyterian Church of San Leandro was organized in 1866. The present sanctuary was built in 1926, adding the youth center and educational wing in 1953 and 1955 respectively.

A Caring Community

Our pastors are available to you and our Deacons and Pastoral Care Committee are eager to meet the needs of members and visitors. We have a prayer group who would welcome your prayer requests. Please feel free to call the church office at any time. We are a serving and caring community.

Nowhere should you feel more welcome and at home than here at the First Presbyterian Church of San Leandro. No matter where you are on your journey of faith, YOU are welcome. We believe that the journey of faith is one that is meaningful, creative, exhilarating and filled with joy.

When the journey gets bumpy, when the stress of everyday life or unexpected crisis shakes your faith, you will find here the love, support, encouragement and peace that can be found in God’s family.
