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.
Summer Social Potluck 
Enjoy a time of connection and community together in the Youth Center following our single hour of worship service on 7/23 at 10 am. The social is potluck style: bring what you wish, main dishes, favorite sides or a dessert to share and drop your dish off at the Youth Center on your way to the sanctuary. It's also Vacation Bible School Sunday. Take advantage of this opportunity to get to know the VBS families as well as Pastor Greg and his family. See the VBS table after services or contact the church office for more info. 
The Youth Spend their Summer Thursdays at the Beach 
Each summer, FUMY spends days and nights at the beach. DABs and DAB/NABs begin this Thursday, 7/6 and run until 8/10. The first and last Thursdays will be a DAB/NAB, meeting at the church at 9 am and returning at 9 pm. The rest in between will be DABs, meeting at 9 am and returning at 4 pm. Contact youth director Sharon Russo for more information. 
Furnish the El Nido Apartment 
UPDATE: A family has been chosen for the Foothills unit! A mother and her 3 boys aged 11, 9 and 7 will be moving in late July, so sign up to donate something soon!
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.

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 
Vacation Bible School 2017 
The theme for this year's weeklong summer camp (Vacation Bible School) is 'Maker Fun Factory -- Created By God; Built For A Purpose!' The camp runs from Monday, July 17 through Friday, July 21, 9 am-12 pm. This program is for children age 4 through those finishing 5th grade (new age range this year!).

Registration forms will be available April 16 at church. Online registration is open through this link. Contact Lisa Stewart for any questions or to register
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.
