Commonly held Events:
A wedding is the celebration of a lasting commitment between two people who make a covenant of abiding love with each other. We look forward to sharing in this sacred and joyous occasion with you. Our minister can officiate at your wedding or if not available, recommend another minister for you. We offer wedding coordinator, organist, music, custodial, and photography assistance. For more information, please call the church office.
Memorial Services are always a difficult time of stress, and we extend our deepest sympathy. We want to help you commemorate the person who has passed away and will work with you to plan a service that does this in the way you wish. Our ministers will be pleased to help you prepare a memorial service and to learn of any special wishes you may have. We offer assistance with scripture selections, music, and memorial fund considerations. The use of our facilities for members of Foothills Congregational Church is provided at no charge. For non-affiliated families, there are fees for use of the sanctuary and for other services. For more information, please call the church office.
Baptisms are offered for people of any age when they wish to become a member of the Christian Church. Parents often make this commitment for their infant children. The UCC states: “With Baptism God embraces you — no matter who you are — and brings you into Christ’s Church. You become vital not only to a local church, but the wider Church. You share in the life, death, and resurrection of Christ. The church also promises to love, support, and care for you throughout your whole life. Baptized, you now participate fully in life of the Church and God’s realm.” Our ministers would be happy to discuss the process and vows with you.
