Dear Foothills Community,

The Annual Open Business meeting is Sunday. We will hear presentations and vote on resolutions from 3 committees:
  • The Vision Committee - approval of a vision statement for FCC
  • The Finance Board - approval of the 2021 operating budget
  • The Outreach Board - approval of the 2021 outreach budget and agency partner list

The Annual congregational celebration is on January 31. We will celebrate the accomplishments of the year. The theme is Let's Have More FUN in 2021. This celebration will remind us of the silver linings, the important moments, and people who make up our community.

Both meetings are immediately after worship at 11:00 a.m. via Zoom.

Due to the Shelter-in-Place restrictions, the Church and Office are temporarily closed.

You can reach us by phone or emails.

Teach Your Dreams to Fly by Mark Burrows 
(YouTube video with sheet music)

This spirited and inspirational song is all about determination. We need our dreams, but our dreams need US, too. Dreams take time, hard work, and persistence. Our dreams are just waiting for us. They already have the wings. They need US to teach them how to fly. -Chorister’s Guild
