Practice Hospitality –
Our partnership in furthering the reach of love begins with a practice of hospitality on Sunday mornings. Whether you have been coming a few weeks, or a few decades, we invite you to regularly participate in greeting, ushering and welcoming our guests on Sunday morning. We encourage you to sign up with a friend or your small group – by working together we strengthen our relationships and pass along the blessing to a greater circle who come seeking our good news that all are worthy of love and belonging, and life is connected. Sign up for Sunday hospitality online or emailing the office at firstname.lastname@example.org, by signing up on Sunday at the sign up table in the social hall, or by calling the office. Thank you for your partnership in this important ministry. (If you are new to Sunday morning jobs, don’t worry, we always have lots of support to help you get oriented.

Help Us Grow Our Welcome
Our Membership Team reaches out to those who are new, feel new, or are looking to re-new in their connections to Foothills, helping them to feel welcome, to find their way and to begin their path of gathering in worship, connecting in community, growing in spirit, serving in partnership and giving in gratitude. Are you someone who likes to help others feel welcome and find their place? Our membership team may be the place for you.
Reach Out to Those In Need
Are you a good listener? Do you have a compassionate heart? Our Caring Team supports the professional ministers in tending to pastoral needs in the congregation, whether through the delivery of meals during a time of need, or through caring cards, or through our Parish Visitors program, where trained and supported members of our congregation visit church members unable to attend services either permanently or temporarily, or who simply need a more regular listening ear.
To apply to be a part of our Parish Visitors program, please complete this Application and submit it to Rev. Gretchen Haley, at email@example.com or by bringing it by the church office. Once you have been initially approved, we will ask that you also complete this document which releases us to perform a background check. Please review this document for more details about the parish visitors program.
If you would like to learn more about joining our Caring Team, contact Rev. Gretchen Haley at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Foster Healthy Relationship with Money & Stewardship of Our Congregation’s Resources
Our Stewardship Team promotes a culture of giving & generosity in our congregation, ensuring that our practices align with our stated values. They lead the annual pledge drive, ensuring that we are all inspired to give as generously as possible so that we are able to fulfill the big dreams and important commitments of our faith. Do you have a passion for our mission? Do you care deeply about this congregation? You need not have particular expertise in finances – rather this team is best made up of people who care deeply about our congregation and have a strong passion for all we can be when we all show up with our full resources to further the reach of love in the world. If this is you, contact Kay Williams, Stewardship Chair, at email@example.com.
Share Your Sound, Lighting & Technical Gifts
Our Worship and Religious Exploration team is always looking for people willing to share their gifts in the audio, visual and technological world. If you have a confidence in sound, lighting, or technology, we would love to connect with you and see if you would like to join our Audio/Visual Team.
Teach in Religious Exploration for Children, Youth or Adults or Lead a Small Group
One of the best ways to grow and deepen in your faith and in connections with the congregation is to teach or lead others in their spiritual path. If you would like to serve in this way, please contact Rev. Gretchen Haley, Associate Minister at firstname.lastname@example.org for any adult programs and Eleanor Van Deusen, Director of Religious Exploration at email@example.com for any children’s programs.
Additionally, if you are interested in serving in leadership in the congregation, we encourage you to attend one of our monthly leadership gatherings facilitated through our Adult RE program. These allow us to get to know each other while developing important skills in facilitation, faith formation and leadership. For more information, contact Rev. Gretchen Haley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
