September 14/15, 2019

Speaker: Pastor Clint Mix

Scripture: Gal 6:1-10

We’ve launched a new design; a new image (logo) to remind us that we are on a Transforming Journey of Knowing God, Loving Others, Reaching Neighbors and Serving the World.

Scripture reminds us that when we Know God we are given the gift of Loving Others. This weekend we will consider some practical ways from Galatians 6:1-11 that can help us move beyond the concept of Loving Others to living this out through community in our day-to-day lives.

Foothills is all about Loving Others by living in community together, and a big part of community is food! A Taste of Foothills is our Fall kickoff event where you can get a taste of what happens at Foothills and find out how you can participate in Loving Others together with us. Join us in Rundle Hall after any of the three services this weekend. We can’t wait to join you on your transforming journey and enjoy some food together too!

See you this weekend!

P.S. Last week we got some exciting news from our daughter church Glacier Ridge! Scroll down to read all about it.

She Did What She Could

March 16/17, 2019

Speaker: Pastor Ian Trigg

Scripture: John 12:1-11 / Mark 14:3-9

I believe it was Voltaire who first said: “In the beginning God created man in His own image, and man has been trying to repay the favour ever since.” Despite the cynicism that likely caused him to write such a line, he is not as far from truth as many judge him to be. We easily create an image or understanding of God based more on our personal experiences, desires or phobias more than on who the Scriptures reveal Him to be. Our series on Encounters with Jesus from John’s gospel is opening our hearts and minds to the truth of who Jesus is and why He came. 

This weekend, we’ll enter into the story of Mary of Bethany, when she anointed Jesus’ feet with very expensive perfume. We’ll consider her understanding of Jesus and contrast it with others (like Judas and the religious elite). Perhaps we’ll see a little bit of ourselves, a lot more of Jesus and, even better, discover just who He longs to be in our stories. Have a great weekend - I look forward to being in worship with you!
