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. Through events, programs, and resources, we hope to partner with every family to help every child grow in body, mind and spirit.
Resources for Families –
Sunday Groups for Children & Youth begin September 20th!
In this challenging time, our Sunday Kids’ Groups are designed to provide a spiritually grounding touch point for kids. New this year…our Kids’ Groups will closely follow our church sermon themes in 4-6 week sessions. This will allow your family to all grow together as we move through these difficult days.
Each Sunday gathering will include a chalice lighting, stories, music, fun activities, and connecting conversations. Our kids’ groups will meet on zoom and will be led by a church staff member and volunteer adult assistants.
Please register your child for the group they will attend. Registrations help us to plan and prepare.
These groups are designed so that your child can jump in whenever it fits your family schedule. We encourage your child to attend as often as possible…and we also know that life happens.
Choose the Group appropriate for your child –
*UU & Me: PreK – 2nd Grade 10:15 am
*Kind Kids: 3rd – 6th Grade 10:15 am
*Coming of Age: 7th & 8th Grade 10:15 am
*Yuuth Gruup: 9th – 12th Grade 11:30 am
New this year! Family Packets!
The packets include activities and resources so that your whole family can engage the monthly church theme together at home in fun and meaningful ways.
How do Family Packets work? You pick up your Family Packet (one per family) at church approximately once per month – our first pickup date is Saturday September 19th. Each Family Packet also includes an online resource using an app called padlet where you can access stories, music, activity instructions and spiritual practices. All of these materials can be accessed in “small bites” and in any order or frequency you choose.
We need adult volunteer assistants in our kids’ groups
Our safety policies require that we have two adults in every zoom gathering with children and youth. You can volunteer for a complete 4-6 week theme session or for scattered single dates that work for you. Family Ministry Staff will lead groups and volunteers will support as breakout leaders or other assigned elements. No prep time required! Register as an “Adult Volunteer Assistant” if you’d like to help out.
