I’m beginning to also talk with fairly recent members, to find out if they are feeling enough connection to the church. For those who would like more (or deeper) connections, I’m helping them to find the best ways to connect that suit their interests and schedules.
Along the way, I’m really enjoying getting to know more of you in more depth! I want to explicitly invite anyone—member or non-member, new to Foothills or have been here for decades—to get in touch with me if you’d like a conversation with me about membership or just to get to know each other better!
Another exciting development in the membership area is that our Membership ministry has expanded from one team into three Learning Communities: Hospitality (facilitated by Howell), Connections (by Gretchen), and Covenantal (by me), each focused on a different stage of becoming deeply connected with the church. All three learning communities would welcome new members, if this is a place where your interests meet the church’s needs! The Connections and Covenantal groups are looking for new members, and Hospitality would both appreciate new members as well as those who may not want to be on the team but would be interested in serving on Sunday mornings. No expertise is required–sign up for a Sunday (or more!) and we will train you. It’s an easy way to connect with and give back to this beloved community. You can sign up for Sunday hospitality by calling the office, or here: http://foothillsuu.org/volunteer/
