At Foothills Church, it is our mission to develop mature disciples of Christ in relational environments. FC Small Groups is where that happens best. These groups meet weekly in homes across our city and region, as we gather to experience authentic fellowship, study and apply scripture, and encourage one another in our walk with Jesus.
At Foothills Church, small groups are at the core of who we are and what we believe. If you are interested in joining one of our FC Small groups next semester, we encourage you to sign up for Small Group Experience beginning October 22. Small Group Experience is a short-term, mid-semester opportunity to meet on the Foothills Church campus and discover what small groups are like, meet fellow small group leaders and ask any questions you may have about the ministry. During the three-week experience, you will have the opportunity to study small group curriculum and experience the traditional FC Small Group. After Small Group Experience, our FC Staff will help you get placed into a small group at the start of our next semester.
Why do we meet as small
At FC, we are passionate about growing, developing and multiplying FC Small Groups for several reasons. First, we believe God designed us to live and thrive in relational environments (Gen. 2:18). Furthermore, Jesus showed us through his ministry an example of what authentic relational environments look like (Mark 3:14). That’s why we desire a culture of relational environments with others because spiritual growth and discipleship occur best through authentic and consistent community with others.
