Listening Posts The purpose of our Cal-Pac listening posts is to give the people in local churches an opportunity to reflect on what is important to them in their Christian faith and in the United Methodist Church, then to imagine new directions for the church toward which God seems to be leading.
Change can create anxiety and the purpose of these listening posts is to empower laity and clergy alike to express their thoughts and feelings and have a voice in the way forward for our Conference.
We are a diverse community and come from a vast range of theological positions, yet we are all members of the same church and share many missions and values in our service to God. It is vitally important that all viewpoints are expressed and taken into account as Bishop Hagiya and the Cabinet, as well as the task force created at Annual Conference 2019 in response to Resolution 19-06, work towards a strategy for the Conference.
Foothills hosts a listening post in King Hall on Saturday, November 9, from 9:30 am - 12:30 pm.

United Methodist Women The United Methodist Women organization has deep roots and a powerful mission focus in The United Methodist Church. The organization has more than one million members worldwide. It is organized for the purpose of supporting mission projects locally and globally, providing Christian education for its members, and developing leadership skills for women. At Foothills, members of UMW meet in small groups called circles for fellowship and study, and as a larger group for monthly meetings and programs. There are two ways you can participate in United Methodist Women. One way is through the monthly Sarah/Ruth circle small group, that meets every first Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. and the other is through our monthly UMW meetings and dinners, which are typically on the third Tuesday of the month. The purpose of UMW is to know God, develop a creative, supportive fellowship and to participate in local and global ministries of the church.
