On Oct 15, the KidsConnect's stewardship focus was the parable of the talents. Dan and Spencer enlisted the help of three kids to retell the story. The middle school group read the story from their Bibles and acted it out! The kinder/1st grade group drew on coffee filters wth markers and sprayed water on the ink to show what happens when you "do something" with what you've been given. The 2nd/3rd graders looked up the verses in their Bibles and did an activity.

 
Upcoming Highlights 
Celebrate Christmas - Bringing Gifts to His World 
Sunday, November 5, 9:30 am - 12:30 pm 
Come celebrate Christmas in King Hall, where you can purchase much needed gifts to help spread God's love to those in need. Tables will be set-up representing many of the ministries that make a real difference, not only in our community, but in the world beyond. Gifts can be made directly to the represented ministry, or you can give your gift(s) in the name of a family member or friend. Many of the groups represented at the Celebrate Christmas market will have goods for sale and fundraising, like Foothills' Prayer Quilt Ministry.  
Glenn Ward's Last Sunday 
After many years and countless melodies, Foothills' faithful organist and contemporary band leader, Glenn Ward, is retiring. Celebrate his ministry, skills and music on his last Sunday leading both hours of worship (8:30 and 10:30 am), November 19.
Crooning Tunes at the Next UMW Dinner 
The next UMW event is Wednesday, November 15th at 6 pm in King Hall. Foothills' own Gary Burt, of the Foothills choir, will sing tunes in tribute to the 'crooners' of the 40s, 50s and more. Men are invited to this dinner as well. Paid reservations will be taken on the patio after both services on November 5th and 12th. Tickets cost is now $12. Childcare is available with 48 hours notice.

Celebrating Veterans at Foothills 
On the Sunday of Veterans Day weekend, we will celebrate the many veterans in our congregation. If you have served in the military, please provide a photo of you during your time of service, so that we can proudly display it in the narthex for all to see as they enter worship on November 12. Please bring your photos to the church on a Sunday morning, or to the office or email them by November 9.

Succulent (Swap) Sunday - November 12 
The Footills' EarthCare group is sponsoring another Succulent Sunday on November 12. Bring pottable succulent cuttings from your home garden with you to church and leave them EarthCare at their patio table before you head in for worship. After services, the table will be full of everyone's donations for others to take home and plant these lovely, water-wise plants. 
Good Shepherd Christmas Food Baskets 
Traditionally, El Cajon UMC has provided food baskets to families that have been identified as 'in need' at Christmas time. This year, Foothills has the opportunity to be partners in this ministry and donate items for the baskets as well. The goal is to provide 60 baskets. Please leave your donated items in a red wagon outside the sanctuary any Sunday morning before December 3, or bring them to the church office.
