Advent & Christmas

Advent Devotionals

Christmas Giving Tree
The Giving Tree will be up in the sanctuary from November 27 to December 11. Each year the Deacons organize the Christmas Food Basket and Giving Tree programs to help needy people in our community. This year there will be no gifts to purchase and wrap. Instead, the Giving Tree will give you the opportunity to donate funds towards either Vietnam Veterans or the Boys & Girls Club. We will be providing 40 Vietnam Veterans with a large basket of food and The Boys and Girls Club across the street with supplies.  Thank you in advance for helping to make Christmas special for someone else! Donate by cash, check (made payable to PCOR with Giving Tree in the memo) or online by clicking HERE.

About Our Church

We are the Presbyterian Church of the Roses in Santa Rosa. Our church was established to be a sanctuary for healing and wholeness, faith and life in the community of Santa Rosa. We are here for YOU!

Join us for worship and find out how you can be a part of an exciting revitalization in the Montgomery Village region of Santa Rosa.  We have an exciting history, which includes a video about our church being built in a day.

Who We Are

We are part of the larger PCUSA church that was established in the early 1700’s. Our church began in 1952 and has been developing in creative ways ever since.

Rev and family

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8: 37-39)
