James Welch

Pipe Organ Concert
Saturday, September 9 at 6pm
FPC Sanctuary

Join us as James Welch of Santa Clara University plays our recently installed Murray M. Harris pipe organ.
Admission is free. A free-will offering will be taken.

UPDATE: El Dorado Street May Be Closed

As you may know, there has been ongoing roadwork on El Dorado for several weeks, and it happens that on Saturday El Dorado may be closed in both directions from Abrego/Munras to Alta Mesa.

How To Access FPC Monterey

The church entrance across from Alta Mesa will be open. (The 2nd driveway — nearest the bottom of El Dorado — will not be accessible.) To access the open driveway, take one of these routes:

  • Don Dahvee Lane (off Munras Avenue), and left onto Alta Mesa Road.
  • OR Via Mirada (near the West entrance of MPC), and right onto El Dorado.

Both these routes will lead you to the upper driveway of FPC. See maps below.


If the parking lot is full, parking on the street will be the only option. The Dental Group lot will be also blocked by construction. The Monterey Police Dept. has been informed of the situation but please try to obey all parking signs on the streets.
