Don't do Life Alone.

Small groups are where life happens.

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.

We invite you to learn more about FC Small Groups by signing up for the FC Short-Term Small Group Experience, a three-week group designed to get you plugged into our small group ministry. The FC Short-Term Small Group Experience will give you a first-hand look at what life looks like as part of a small group. We will also help you get plugged into the right group for you at our next FC Small Group Small Group Connect in January and August.



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 the next Short-Term Small Group Experience. The Short-Term Small Group Experience meets at FC on Tuesday nights for three weeks to help you meet small group leaders and ask any questions you may have. We will study curriculum and model a traditional FC Small Group setting. At the completion of the Short-Term Small Group Experience, our FC Staff will help you get placed into a small group at the start of our next small group 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.
