Outreach to Seniors

A dedicated outreach ministry team leads a once-a-month worship service at Shouldice Lodge. 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 Food Bank

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

Birthday Box

During closing of the 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. The donations are being sent on to the United Church of Canada United Church Mission and Service 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 by supporting the St. Edmund's Christmas hamper program. Donation of cash and grocery cards and non-perishable donations are delivered to St. Edmund to be included in their hampers.

Christmas Poinsettia Memorial Program
Congregaton members donate to purchase a poinsettia in memory of a loved one and add a message of love which is printed in the bulletin. The poinsettias decorate the sanctuary for Christmas. After Christmas the poinsettias are delivered to our shut-ins.
