A Call For Lenten Devotionals  
Please consider submitting a Lenten Devotional! These are daily prayers, anecdotes, and bible verses that bring us closer to God during the time leading up to Easter. A typical devotion layout starts with a Bible verse then a story or anecdote and ends with a prayer. Send yours by email to Shandra Zawacki or leave your devotion in the church office before February 15.
Volunteer Your Time with the Interfaith Shelter 
The Interfaith Shelter is a rotating shelter for homeless people who are actively working towards bettering their lives and finding a job. Foothills will host the shelter at a nearby church from 2/11 - 2/25. Many volunteers are needed to make this a success. Email our missions coordinator, Carolyn Wetzel, if you are able to be an overnight host, provide meals, transportation, laundry services or hygiene packets. 
Family Mission Team 
Families interested in exploring a Family Mission Trip this summer, are invited to gather on Sunday, Feb. 5 at 4:00 p.m. in the Youth Center. We are planning a trip in California or nearby and need your input about dates and possible mission projects. This is a wonderful opportunity for families to make a difference and create experiences to last a lifetime.
50th Anniversary Luncheon  
Each year, Foothills throws a grand celebratory luncheon for all the couples in the congregation that have been married for 50 years or more. If you're a member and have reached this amazing milestone, you should be receiving an invitation to the February 4 event.
