Second Sunday after Epiphany

January 16, 2022 10:00 a.m.
Dear Foothills Community,

Sunday worship are offered in our Sanctuary and on Zoom. All are welcome!

Santa Clara County mandates that masks be worn indoors regardless of vaccination status. For this reason, masks are required while inside church facilities. We encourage Foothills community to complete vaccination and ask that each of us to continue to follow health guidelines, stay home and get tested if any symptoms are present. We are committed to providing a safe environment for all and appreciate your help in keeping our community healthy!
See below for this week’s updates from our Children's Program and our activities schedule.

Sing Along!
"Faith (Hebrews 11:1)" by Jay Stocker.
The Scripture for Sunday January 16 is John 2:1-11, about Jesus’ first miracle: turning water into wine. Pastor Chris will preach about “Turning water into wine, and faith into spirituality.” To help us think about and understand about faith, here’s a beautiful snowy video of the song “Faith” based on the verse Hebrews 11:1. The New Revised Standard version of the Bible says it this way: “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” The Good News translation may make it easier to understand: “To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see.”
