Kids & Families


From KidsConnect to our FUMY youth group, our Young Adults group to our MomsConnect fellowship, Foothills UMC is a place where kids, students, and parents can grow in their faith together, loving God and loving others.

Our family ministry team plans a variety of activities that help families put faith in action through community service opportunities, building relationships with others, and simply having fun! Some favorite family activities include a beach bonfire, Sundae fun day, kindness rocks, Family Camp at Camp Cedar Glen, movie nights, trunk-or-treat, and family service projects including the reverse Advent calendar food collection.

Check this page for upcoming activities or sign up to get a reminder text when we hold family “pop up” events in the community or activities at church. Type @619kcfam in the text message field and send it to 81010. (If 81010 doesn’t work, try texting @619kcfam to 619/489-7052.)

If you’re looking for a place to grow relationships that connect children and families to God, each other, and the church, we hope you’ll try our family ministry groups, programs, faith activities, and events! You are always welcome to bring a friend. If you have questions, our family ministries coordinator Lisa Stewart would love to meet you via a phone call or a meet-up at a coffee shop.

LIFT: Living in Faith Together lift-page-strip.jpg ​LIFT is on a COVID hiatus and will be scheduled as soon as it is safe to do so.

Intended for all ages, Living In Faith Together is a different way to experience God, friends, and faith! Centered around a theme, it includes time to gather for dinner, participate in the message together, talk about how the message applies to you, and celebrate in song and music. LIFT addresses everyday life issues and includes a shared meal. It's a great place to build community with each other and to connect spiritually. Join the fun. Eat food. Praise God through song. Make new friends. Live In Faith Together!

Help us plan for a dinner headcount by registering your attendance online.
