The following are some of Foothills' immediate needs. Please prayerfully consider helping.
Parking Lot Hosts
These individuals provide hospitality and security during worship hours (8:30 am & 10:30 am). The hosts provide help in the parking lot for guests and for those with physical needs. They also provide security of property during worship times. Hosts become the ‘first-contact’ for many and are the face of Foothills as a welcoming church. We are proud that there have been no break-ins or vandalisms during patrols since the creation of this group. All volunteers get a free coffee and a donut on each of their shifts. Contact Sue Ranck by email or call the church office at 619-670-4009.
Sunday School Teachers
If you have been attending Foothills UMC for at least six months, enjoy spending time with children and sharing the story of Jesus, please consider giving some of your time to our Sunday School program. We are looking for teachers and teacher assistants to lead the children of our church during the 8:30 am and 10:30 am worship hours. For more information please contact Lisa Stewart in the church office at 670-4009.
Drivers are needed to occasionally transport the youth and other groups to church activities and events off campus. This volunteer will drive the church van, and is required to have a class B license with a passenger transportation endorsement. If you can help or have any questions please contact our youth director in the church office.
The Pastoral Care team is looking for volunteers to prepare meals and make deliveries to people and families in our congregation after they have had a hospital stay. The commitment is approximately one meal per month. Contact Jeanette Ham by email or call the church office at 619-670-4009.
Front Office Volunteers
Church office workers and substitutes are needed. We are looking for friendly faces to greet people, answer phones and help the staff with projects. Currently, we have an opening on Wednesday afternoons from 3:00 until 4:30 p.m. Substitutes are always needed to work from 9:00 a.m. until noon, noon until 3:00 p.m. and 3:00 until 4:30 p.m. It’s a great way to get to know the church staff and see what goes on behind-the-scenes. Contact Sue Ranckby email or call the church office at 619-670-4009.
La Roca Ministry and Community Center in Tijuana
Every third Thursday a team goes to La Roca and helps with a variety of projects, from simple cleaning to more involved construction. The team meets at 7:00 a.m. in the church parking lot and usually returns between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m. Volunteers must have a passport and bring a snack, water and work gloves. Contact Susan Naslund by email or call the church office at 619-670-4009.
Foothills sponsors two full routes of meal deliveries for Meals-on-Wheels. The commitment can be monthly or weekly and the requirement is two hours from pick-up of meals, meal delivery and return of coolers to pick-up spot. Optimally, two people deliver together as driver and navigator. Contact Susan Naslund by email or call the church office at 619-670-4009.
