Furnish the El Nido Apartment 
The El Nido housing complex is a place for women and their children to go and live, after they have fled a domestic abuse situation and have found themselves homeless. Foothills sponsors one of the two-bedroom apartments and the current family has just graduated from the program, showing incredible success and growth. They get to take their furnishings to their new apartment, so that means Foothills needs to fill the place with love and warmth for the next survivor family. Please click here to read more about this ministry, to see the list of needs and to sign up to contribute.  
Charge Conference 
Foothills is moving forward with its partnership with El Cajon First UMC, to create a ministry center. The first steps in that process is to reaffirm the ministry of Rev. Lori Doyle, who is currently serving at ECFUMC. A charge conference needs to be held to vote on and approve the details of this first step. All are welcome and encouraged to attend on Sunday, 6/25 at 6:30 pm in King Hall. 
Summer Family Mission Team 
The 2017 family mission team project has been announced! The group will be refurbishing the playground at El Cajon First UMC from 7/10-15. This is a perfect way to get to know our new ministry partners on the other side of town, to grow as a family and to grow as a faith community. Read More 
Pure Sound Youth Choir at Foothills   
The Pure Sound Youth Choir out of Austin, Texas is going on tour and making a stop in San Diego. Foothills is lucky enough to host this talented group, that will be performing in the sanctuary on Wednesday, 6/21 at 6 pm. This concert is free and a great way to support these budding musicians. 
A Class on the What and Why of Christian Belief
What do I believe? For Christians and others seeking faith, some powerful answers to this question are expressed in the Apostles' Creed: a historic statement of foundational Christian faith. In Adam Hamilton's compelling book and six week study we will explore what we believe and why. Foothills will be offering two times that this class can be taken on Sundays at 4 pm and Tuesdays at 10 am. The classes begin June 18. Read More and Sign up

Youth Summer Camps at Cedar Glen  
The summer camps at Cedar Glen are at the very least a wonderfully-fun experience, but we often hear that they are transformative for the youth that attend. Camps are available for youth aged lower elementary up through senior high to get away for a week to a camp in Julian that has tons of activities and programs put together by the United Methodist Church to bring everyone closer together and closer in Christ.
