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.

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 praise 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!”
