So come as you are and experience life at Foothill Church. Pastor Sam’s message this Sunday is titled “That Thing We Do.”

“Drawing Near!” is the title of the series of studies at our Wednesday Evening Mid-Week Service. This study will be all about developing a life of intimacy with Christ. You don’t want to miss this exciting and challenging teaching. Children’s programs and child care provided.

Grace Lutheran Church

Grace Lutheran Church invites you to join them in Sunday worship as we continue into the penitential season of Lent. This week Pastor Degner’s sermon theme will be “God’s Word – Not What We Expect!” based on the Paul’s words in 1 Corinthians 1:22-25. Continuing the Lenten emphasis on the cross, Paul tells us that some people seek wisdom and others knowledge. Neither will get you closer to God. Salvation comes to us from the cross of Christ! And Christ’s sacrifice on the cross accomplishes all that is necessary for anyone seeking eternal life to receive it. Not everyone can hear this word, but it is the Word of life, today and eternally.

Services are 9 a.m. every Sunday, with Family Christian Education Hour following at 10:30 a.m. During the season of Lent we will also worship for Midweek “Devotions” every Wednesday evening, beginning at 5:30 p.m., and followed by a Soup-Supper. For more information, call the church office at 273-7043.
