Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost

Dear Foothills Community,

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

The indoor mask mandate had returned to the county regardless of vaccination status. With this, masks are required while inside the church facilities. Also, we ask that all Foothills community continue to follow health guidelines and stay home if any symptoms are present. We are committed to providing a safe environment for all and appreciate your help in keeping our community healthy!
Last, if you're still enjoying worship at home, or if you're away from the Bay Area, our online worship will remain available via livestream on Zoom. 

Please continue to check our Children's Program and the schedule for the upcoming activities this week.
