10:00 am Worship Summer Schedule 
Running until September 1, our congregations merge into one,
single hour of worship at 10:00 am. There will be special music and events each week,
so be sure to come experience this time together with those Foothillians
you may only see in passing between services.
August 25 - Corey Hable: Counter-Tenor
Come for another treat from Corey Hable. He's written pieces just
for Foothills and on this Sunday, he will be leading the service's music.
September 1 - 'Big' Business Day Ever need a plumber? A Handyman? A tech guru? A lawyer? Foothills probably has someone in the congregation who could fill that need! On our 'Big' Business Day, head to the Youth Center after the service to see all that our members do. To publicize your business or service and sign up for a table, contact Sue Ranck
Rise Against Hunger Progress 
The campaign to raise enough funds to package 25,000 meals for the food insecure around the world is underway.
After announcing in worship last Sunday, newsletter links and VBS donations, we are 30% of the way to the $8,500 goal.
To donate, visit this link, or contact the church office.
On September 30, Foothills will team up with students at Monte Vista High school to package the raw materials provided by Rise Against Hunger. In just one morning, they will assemble 25,000 meals that will then be shipped out to Vietnam to feed children in school who may only get that one meal during their day. Many meals are also provided to elder care facilities.
Please do what you can to share the above link with your friends and family and help reach the $8,500 goal soon.
