Leadership Team & Child Care
Pastor Julie Johnson
I am honored to be the Pastor of Fircrest Presbyterian Church, a vibrant Christian community that is actively bringing God’s love to the community of Fircrest and beyond! I invite you to come and find out more about us. We worship at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings, and take part in many community ministries throughout the week. You are welcome here!
I am a lifelong Presbyterian, and I am proud to be a pastor in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) I am confident in following Jesus’ model of ministry by including all people, ministering to all generations, and caring for all people through local mission and outreach. So far in my life I have been an enthusiastic student, a camp counselor, a singer in a loud Christian band, a financial analyst, a management consultant, and most importantly a wife and a mom of two amazing young people. In my spare time I love to run with my “running women”, paddle board, cook, garden, and take walks with my husband and our Golden Retriever Callie.
Come join us at Fircrest Presbyterian Church as we discern and follow the Spirit of God with energy, intelligence, imagination and love! I'd love to hear from you: firstname.lastname@example.org
Linda Bringer has been our Music Director for 28 beautiful years. A remarkable musician herself - Linda is devoted to finding vocal and instrumental music that enriches our worship times. She also has a gift for spotting the special musical talents of individuals and encouraging them to share their artistry with the congregation.
Our Fircrest Pres Treasurer is Jack Stillmaker - a longtime member who has abundantly contributed his talents and time through the years. We're grateful for his commitment - not only in financial management - but also as a musician, singing in our choir and with the Praise Crew- and also as a gent who readily says "yes" when a volunteer is needed.
Our JOY Children's Program leader - Ashley Stillmaker - has years of experience and loves working with our kids. Contact us if you have questions about our curriculum.
Fircrest Pres offers a fun, safe and engaging place where kids can learn to explore their gifts. Ordinarily children are welcome to join our Joy leader in the Fellowship Hall - right after the Young Disciples Time. During COVID-19 Ashley is using the USPS to provide Christian formation for our children. The Joy Program follows the same Scripture lesson as the sermon for the day. As children hear the Scripture for the day - they engage with God’s truth through creative songs, crafts, games and imaginative play.
Note: Childcare is suspended due to COVID-19, and will resume when we return to in person worship. For infants and toddlers, we have childcare provided in a safe and clean environment in our Nursery - which is watched over by a loving and very experienced caregiver, Aneaka Davis. Please talk with Aneaka when you arrive (any member will help you find her) - and check out our bright, happy Nursery room.
If you prefer, we also have a 'cry room' for little ones that need to move around with a parent or loved one.
