What could be more exciting for an elf than to work for and meet Santa Claus? These two elves find out that even Santa thinks Jesus is the most exciting part of Christmas, and encourages them to celebrate His birth.
May your Christmas be filled with the joy of Christ’s birth and the celebration of His love for us!

Special Music for Christmas
Back in 2015, FPC’s very own Director of Music & Worship Arts Nancy Groeneveld recorded this Christmas tune along with her music team from her church at the time, a large Presbyterian church in northern California. The song, which was presented as a gift to that church family, became so popular that it was requested to be a part of every Christmas Eve service for 10 years in a row!
Enjoy this song as you celebrate Christmas this year.
Christmas Music from the Dotys
David Doty, son of Steve and Vicki Doty, is a talented music writer and arranger. Recently, the Dotys shared links to David’s website, DavidDotyMusic.com, which is offering lots of Christmas music options for you to enjoy! There are even Christmas carol lyric videos so you can sing along! Be sure to listen to “What Child is This.” It features David’s wife, Gloria, and the debut of granddaughter Abigail when she cries three times at the beginning of the song. Hah! Under the Music tab on the website you’ll find Christmas piano solos that make great soundtrack while you check off your holiday to-do list.
We know the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted everyone—raising the level of fear, stress, and anxiety for people all over the world and underscoring the importance of caring ministry. As a Stephen Ministry congregation, we equip and empower lay caregivers to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care. Our commitment to this ministry is extremely important during these uncertain times.
If you, or someone you know, could benefit from this ministry, contact the church office.
