OUTREACH AND COMMUNITY

Outreach to Seniors

Three dedicated outreach ministry teams lead once-a-month worship services at Shouldice Lodge, Bow View Manor Nursing Home and Bow Crest Care Centre. People are invited to help with this ministry to seniors in the community. The residents appreciate this opportunity to worship in prayer, song, praise and fellowship.

Calgary Interfaith Food Bank

Foothills United Church is a Depot for the Calgary Interfaith Food Bank. The depot operates Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. and is staffed by church volunteers. A Food Bank donation bin is always available in the church foyer for your non-perishable food donations.

Birthday Box

During Pre-Sing time of Sunday Service, we invite forward anyone who is celebrating birthday, anniversary or any special occasion, to make a donation to "our little white church" birthday box. We currently are not sponsoring a child but rather the donations are being sent on to the United Church of Canada World Development and Relief Fund.

Grandparents Reading Program

During the school year our grandparent volunteers meet once a week at a local Bowness school to help and encourage about 75 pupils with their reading. The grandmothers have helped several of the same students over the last two years so the difference has been very noticeable. This is such a rewarding program as we have helped these children along their way. Their smiling faces make our day enjoyable.

Christmas Hamper Program

Every year Foothills United Church provides assistance to area families with our Christmas hamper program. We also erect a Mitten Tree in the sanctuary. The mittens, scarves, toques and slippers on the tree become a part of our Christmas hampers.

Bowness Memorial Monument (Mackintosh Park)
To honour and remember former Bowness Residents whose families would like to have their names engraved as a remembrance.  For engraving, please call:  (403)288-5561.
