Our leadership has a continuing challenge: to invite you not only to a committed relationship to Jesus Christ, but to grow each year toward becoming more devoted disciples of Jesus Christ with an ever deepening connection with God. Stewardship emphasis is the time to invite you to take another step in your spiritual growth. This next month promises to be an exciting time of anticipation as we look ahead to what is possible both in our own lives and in our congregational choices for the future. Foothills is poised to move into a powerful year in 2017. Read more and make your pledge
Seeker's Class 
The Pastor's Class, led by Pastor Eric Smith, has been renamed by class members. The new name is "The Seeker's Class." The class meets once per month - typically the third Wednesday of the month (but it meets on Thursday, 10/20 at 6:30 pm in the Disciple Room, this month). Each class is a stand-alone offering, so you can attend anytime and not be behind. It is a discussion format class in which the members suggest discussion topics. Come on out this Thursday night!
A safe, family-friendly, trick-or-treating alternative will take place in Foothills' lower parking lot on Sunday, 10/23 from 5 pm - 6 pm. Bring your bags and go car to car gathering loads of goodies. The event is hosted by the Foothills Faith Academy. If you would like to sponsor a spot, please contact director Kay McLaughlin. Spots are available for parking and decoration from 4 - 4:50 pm.

October Kairos Retreat 
Foothills is sending its missionaries back to prison for another Kairos retreat at RJ Donovan Correctional Facility. The retreat will run from October 27 - 30 and your help is needed to create the greatest impact for those who will be in attendance. The greatest need is for fresh, home-baked cookies that will be given to the inmates. Please bring them bagged by the dozen on Sundays 10/16 and 10/23. Since the cookies are going into a prison, there are specific rules to be followed. Instructions and much more information can be found on our website
Sign Up to Be An Acolyte 
If your child or grandchild is in grades 4 through 7 and is interested in being an acolyte, sign-ups are happening every Sunday in September in King Hall. Acolytes serve every 4-6 weeks and are an important part of the worship service. They light the candles on the altar, assist the ushers with the offertory, and assist with baptisms. Acolyting is a meaningful step in a child's faith journey -- a path that they take alongside their parents/grandparents and the congregation. Training for new and continuing acolytes will be held October 23 at 11:45am in the choir room. Read More
