With the return to school, pumpkin spice showing up on shelves and water communion around the corner, it’s clear – Fall is almost here!
As we settle into new routines, it’s so important to be grounded in community and to carve out time for reflection and centering.
Find four steps to make church a part of your Fall below:
1. Pick your Fall Service!
We are returning to TWO in-person services on Sunday, September 18th (8:30 and 10 AM) – learn more about each below! (No registration required – just bring yourself, your family, and your friends!)
A 60-minute contemporary service geared especially to adults. Enjoy music-making, centering, and receive a message from our ministers.
A contemporary UU service (75 minutes) that begins with all ages together. After 20 minutes, children up to middle-school age go to small, peer-based groups in our education building. Adults remain in the Sanctuary for a time of quiet meditation and a sermon.
Families with Children
Childcare for infants and toddlers is available during both services. We strongly encourage families with children to attend our 10:00 am service which is designed for all ages and includes faith development programs for children through middle school.
PARENTS – join us for our weekly Parent Circle. Parents Circle is an ongoing drop-in group that meets at 9 AM (right before our 10 AM service). Foothills Parents and Caregivers can meet each other and share the joys and struggles that are at the center of family life. Coffee and childcare provided.
Sunday kids groups (ages nursery through middle school) meet during the 10 AM service. Please register your child(ren) for the 2022/2023 year.
High school youth group will gather at 11:30 AM immediately following the 10 AM service. Please register here then come as often as you’re able!
2. Pick your group!
As we transition seasons and move into a new routine, having a group of folks to connect with and count on is essential – not to mention, fun!
3. Find your place to serve!
One of the best ways to grow in spirit and meet other people at Foothills is to get involved in serving.
At Foothills, there is no shortage of ways to get involved in helping others. From racial justice to food bank to ensuring newcomers feel belonging on Sundays, there is something to speak to every passion.
See all the opportunities to serve with Foothills at foothillsuu.org/serve.
If you’re especially interested in getting involved in justice work, please visit foothillsuu.org/justicework, where you can learn about all of our current efforts to end oppression in all forms.
All of our work is possible through shared giving. Giving is a spiritual act. In much of our individual lives, we consume experiences. At Foothills, we are the experience, we are the work, we are the church. As we give, we feel more ownership of and connection to our collective work. And our work is having such a big impact!
To maintain our current work, we need to raise an additional $67,000 by the end of 2022. Fall is always one of the lowest times of year for donations, so whatever you can give now would be especially valued.
This Fall, we invite you join in the spiritual practice of shared ownership, of being the work, and being the church by making a gift at foothillsuu.org/donate.
