Worship at Foothills

Pandemic Actions

To mitigate the danger to our community, our worship experience has changed.
Normal worship and gatherings are currently on pause.
Our services will be pre-recorded and posted to YouTube, Facebook and our website each Sunday at 10:00 am, with live interaction available on all of those platforms. There is no account needed to interact and chat during the service on our website.
In-person worship, outdoors, is available for up to 100 people each Sunday at 8:30 am.

This Sunday

10:00 am Live Watch Party: foothillsumc.online.church/
Also available on Facebook (@foothillsumc) and YouTube (@fumclamesa)
March 7 - 3rd Sunday of Lent - Communion

​​​​​​House of Prayer
Preacher: Rev. ​Kristie Grimaud
Music: ​Traditional, Virtual Choir
Scripture: ​​​​​​​​John 2:13-22
Details: Jesus cleanses the Temple, and we see how passionate he was to reclaim this sacred space. The ways of the world distorted their place of worship just as it invades, ever so subtly, our churches today. As we continue our journey in Lent, we are invited to reflect on these questions: What does it mean to be the church of Jesus? Are we brave enough to be this church?

Kids: After you watch the pastor's Children's Message, grab your own device and jump over to Playlister to watch today's pre-recorded "KidsConnect with Ms. Lisa". Click here for the link
