Foothills Stewardship for 11.7.16

Foothills Stewardship for 11.7.16
Open & Affirming: Stewardship of our church, selves and community with open hearts, minds and doors. 
A Spooktacular Event! 
Huge congratulations to youth director Sharon Russo and all of FUMY for putting on the most fun and ghoulish event for local youth over the Halloween weekend. 140 youth from 11 churches all over the South District area partied and danced hard enough to shake the floors of the Youth Center on Saturday. Guests enjoyed a cake walk, mummy wrap, haunted house and lots of great costumes.
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
UMW Dinner 11/15 
The next UMW dinner is Tuesday 11/15 at 6 pm in King Hall. It will be a musical delight with the harmonious California Note Catchers singing group. Dinner is provided by our own Karen Rausis at a cost of only $10. Sign up via email and let us know if you need childcare. Te end of daylight saving time means it will get dark earlier, so if you need transportation let the UMW know and they will try arrange it.
The UMW is also still collecting Albertson's cookware stamps through the month of December to get new items for the Foothills kitchens. If you shop there and aren't collecting for yourself, please put them in an envelope labeled UMW and bring them to the church before Christmas.
Family eXperience  
The next FX is on Sunday, 11/13 at 11:45 am after second service and taking place in King Hall. Come on down for a provided lunch along with family fun games. Explore this month's KidsConnect theme of honor at this fun gathering.
Alternative Christmas: 11/20 
It's time again for Foothills' Alternative Christmas! Come on Sunday, November 20 to King Hall after both services to get your Christmas shopping done and make your gift giving count. Alternative Christmas allows you to purchase a gift, which makes a real difference to individuals and communities in need, by contributing to one of many mission areas as an alternative gift for those 'hard-to-buy-for' friends and family members.
