What are the service times?

We gather for worship on Sunday morning’s  at 10:30am.  You are welcome to join us. When you enter the glass doors you will find yourself in our lobby that might be bustling with adults and children visiting with each other. To your right is the entrance to our worship space.  As you approach it, you will meet some nice people handing out bulletins that contain the order of service and also community announcements. There is no assigned seating so find yourself a spot you will be comfortable in.  Song books and Bibles are in the pews.

What about Sunday School?

The Sunday School program runs from mid September to early June.  It begins at 9:30am and ends before church starts at 10:30am.

There is also a coffee time in the gym/fellowship hall at 9:30am (downstairs), it a good time to meet new people and old friends.

Classes meet in the following locations:

  • The Preschool to grade Six classes meet upstairs (follow the signs)
  • Jr. High and High School classes meet in the office wing just off the main foyer (the hallway starts by the coat racks)
  • Adult class meets in the fireside room just off the gym in the basement (go down the stairs from the foyer)
What is the Worship Style?

At Foothills we value an intergenerational approach to worship. We try to involve our children and youth in our worship service as much as possible. Almost every Sunday we have a Children’s Feature.  Our musical styles range from folk/contemporary to hymns, new and old. Preaching is also a central part of our worship service with messages to encourage and challenge. We celebrate Communion once a month.  Most of our worship services are about an hour in length.

What about Community?

Building a sense of connectedness and community is a priority for us at Foothills as we seek to be an active part of God’s work in the world. There are a wide range of people who have an affiliation with our church, sometimes it takes a few Sundays to meet new people. Please introduce yourself if you are comfortable with that and we will try to meet you as well.  If you are interested in small groups, we have lots of them that range from Bible/Book Studies to walking groups, to service groups and more.  Charlotte would be happy to connect you to what interests you.
