Protocols for Worship. Please be sure the ushers check your name on the attendance roster before you enter the sanctuary. Designated seating with a separate entrance through the east door is provided for those who desire extra precaution, and face masks will be required to be worn in that area throughout the service. Wherever you sit, you are encouraged to be gracious to your neighbors and keep comfortable distancing between households. Please continue to care for the well-being of our whole community and join us online if you are feeling unwell.

Children in Worship. We are happy to invite children into worship. If you are bringing children with you to church, please be sure that their names, as well as yours, are recorded on our sign-in sheet. There is a Pray-ground in the front of the sanctuary (northeast corner) for our youngest worshipers and their adults, where anyone can color, read, or play quietly during the service. There are also rocking chairs for soothing our smallest worshipers. A children's message will be offered during worship and Pastor Naomi will meet anyone interested in gathering during that time at the Pray-ground.

Live-streaming and Recording. Please be advised, when you enter a Lutheran Church of the Foothills worship service you will be entering an area where photography, video and audio recording may occur. As such, there is no way to guarantee that your image will not appear or that your voice will not be heard.

Discussion Eucharist Worship at 8:00 a.m. Our in-person-only Discussion Eucharist worship meets at 8:00 a.m. in the Learning Center. Holy Communion is offered, but there is no music. Masks are worn at the group's discretion. Scott Warren is our worship and gospel discussion leader. All are welcome to this early morning in-person-only worship service.

Worship Service at 10:30 a.m. Our in-person and live-streamed Worship Service meets at 10:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Holy Communion is offered, and singing is accompanied by organ and/or piano. The recording of this service is posted mid-week on our "Lutheran Church of the Foothills - Tucson" YouTube channel.
