Family Events at Foothills

Check out the monthly Family Connection newsletter!

May 2017
April 2017

Built upon the concept of building a bridge between church and home, this newsletter is designed for families with children ages preschool through 8th grade. Spiritual growth is relationally driven. When church and parents work together in the life of a child or teenager, our potential to influence that child/teen increases dramatically.

In each issue of FamilyConnection, you will find an article highlighting a spiritual strategy for you to try at home. The KidsConnect section gives an overview of what your kids are learning on Sundays and ways to reinforce that learning at home. FamilyConnection includes information about ways your family can serve together—bringing faith to life!

What spiritual topics would you like to see in future issues of FamilyConnection? Send suggestions and ideas to carlaslater@foothillsumc.org.

​Special Events

Faith Academy Picnic and Auction
faith-academy-strip.jpgEach year, the Faith Academy wraps up a successful curriculum full of fun, learning and bonding with their silent auction and picnic. The theme of this year's event is Carnival! Pack a picnic, dress up and bring the whole family to celebrate the great good that being in a learning community of faith has done for all of the attendees and their parents. Everyone is welcome to attend this event and to bid on the many wonderfully cultivated baskets and goodies in the auction.
The event will take place in King Hall on Saturday, June 3 from 11 am - 2 pm.

Come support these wonderfully talented youths.

FX: Family Experience

FX is a way for you to experience faith together as a family with a free lunch! Held on the ​second Sunday of the month from 11:45am-1:15pm, FX helps parents and children experience a different spiritual virtue each month. FX gives parents a “jumping off point” for intentional conversations with their kids during their week. FX is FUN for the whole family! Where else could you use items such as hula hoops, marshmallows, and ping pong balls to explore faith concepts in fun and active ways? Join us for an hour or so of free food, fun, friendships, and faith development!

If you have questions, contact Lisa Stewart, Children & Family Ministries Coordinator.
