Foothills is a place for families!
We are here for you in these challenging times.
We know that families come in all shapes and sizes, big families, small families, chosen families, blended families, families with children with unique needs and gifts. At Foothills we welcome all families. We know that many people fill the role of a child’s primary life and spiritual guide: parents, grandparents, foster parents, family friends. Through events, programs, and resources, we hope to partner with every family to help every child grow in body, mind and spirit.
Online Resources for Families during closure for COVID-19

Each one includes music and stories and is appropriate for families with children ages 3 and up. We suggest that you gather in a quiet and cozy location, light your home chalice, and watch together.
