There are many ways to get involved at Foothill, whether it is a desire to serve others in God's world, or to grow deeper in your own discipleship. We offer programs for all ages, and not just for the soul, but for the body as well!
Who’s ready for adventure, exploration, fellowship and fun? If this sounds like your “Cup of Tea”, then you are ready for the Prime Timers! Sensing the desire of members from our congregation for the formation of a social group, a small core group met to discuss a plan to meet monthly for participation in a variety of fun activities. These activities will afford an opportunity to invite friends & family who do not attend our church to join us.

We love to discover and experience God’s grace in each one!
Let's face it... being together isn't always easy. We've learned that we are at our best when we covenant to honor each other, work through our difficulties, believe the best of each other, and communicate well. It's a commitment we've made to each other, and we make it to you to. No church is a perfect place, but we want to be a safe place, and a place where Christ is honored and the scriptures set the standard for our interactions.
We think the Apostle Paul summed it up quite nicely:
But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely.
