Gospel of John: Believe & Live

john square ss@2x-8.png

The book of John is filled with great stories about Jesus. The first half of the book shows many signs and wonders that point to His divinity. Some of Jesus’ greatest teachings are captured as leaders, crowds, and his disciples look to him for answers to life’s biggest questions. The story moves in the second half of the book toward his death, burial, and resurrection. It’s the beautiful and ultimate depiction of sacrificial love on full display.

Join Foothills on Sunday mornings at 9am & 10:45am as we learn more about Jesus and what he asks us to believe.

The Connection Women's Event

cnx feb 19 square@2x-8.png

Every life faces challenges, with some more painful, and other stories incomprehensible. Such is the case with Stephanie Fast’s early life. After being deserted by her mother when she was just four or five years old, she was left helpless and vulnerable, nearly succumbing to a premature death. Unlike many destitute children in her situation, Stephanie refused to give up. She sensed she had a higher purpose, and fought with every ounce of her being, through hardship after hardship, in order to survive.

Join us Tuesday, Feb. 19, at Foothills, when we'll hear this incredible story from Stephanie herself. Coffee and tea service provided. Sorry, no childcare available. This event is FREE.
