At Foothills, we have one goal. To see you walk fully in your faith in Jesus.

This is called being an adult. Adults define the win: they consider, think thru, weigh truth and what is truly important concerning life. They don’t want to waste it, but enjoy the journey God has gifted them with. 

  • Adults are the ones who fight for us and protect us

  • Adults diagnose and care for us as Dr.’s, nurses, paramedics

  • Adults operate transportation grids

  • Adults teach, lead, build, and shape.

How is God challenging you to be a more courageous adult?
