10 am Summer Services, July 16 - Septemeber 10 
Throughout the summer, Foothills will merge the usual two morning services into one hour of praise. Experience unique musical presentations and see friends from other services while many others head away for the season.
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.

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.
