The staff and leadership here at First Presbyterian Church of Redding are people who love, care, and pray for every member of this church. Currently we are in transition seeking an ordained minister or pastor of the word and sacrament. We appreciate the responsibility for conduct of church services that such a teaching elder will bring to our congregation. If you have questions for any one of our staff don't hesitate to call the church office or send an email.
Jeanie and her husband, Stan joined the FPC in 1998 when when they moved to Redding from the Bay Area. She has served many years as a Worship Elder, both here in Redding and at her former church, Immanuel Presbyterian in San Jose. Since 2012, Jeanie has been serving as FPC’s Worship Director assisting the pastor and coordinating all worship ministries at FPC including worship arts, music, and service planning. She is an accredited accordion instructor and has served on our church worship team since 2001.
“Worship is not about us; it’s not about what we like or don’t like. It’s all about allowing the Holy Spirit to fill us and work in us, lifting high the name of Jesus, and glorifying God. We want every detail of our worship services to enhance our worship and point others to Jesus. Our praise team is not here to perform on Sunday mornings; we are here to serve God’s church, to lead His people in worship. All that we do, we do for the glory of God alone. Soli Deo gloria!”
Nancy has been the director of the Carillons Handbell Choir since 1992. Born and raised in Iowa, she took piano lessons in the 4th grade and continued through college. After 22 years teaching in elementary schools, she retired in 2004.
She has two children and four grandchildren. She enjoys gardening, golfing, cross-country skiing, and hiking.
The Carillons ring bells in our worship service and the United Methodist Church as well as at their home church, St. James Lutheran, monthly from September through May.
They also perform at many venues and events throughout Redding, and host the Redding Handbell Festival in October bringing hand bell choirs from northern CA, Oregon and Nevada together for workshops and a concert performance.
As a Presbyterian Church, First Presbyterian is led by a team of elders, which means that major decisions are made by a team of godly men and women elected by the congregation. We call this team the "Session". We currently have five active ruling elders who oversee the ministries and staff here at First Presbyterian Church.
