Our goal is to play a vital role in the lives of women so that the benefit is felt throughout the entire family. We help women strengthen the relationships they care about as we grow closer together and closer to God. We firmly believe that women who are close to God draw others close to Him as well.
There are a variety of women’s ministries at Foothills, each one born in the heart of a woman who believed that what she needed was a need for others, too. Our groups are guided by the desire for relationship, training, and support. Our motto is Nobody Walks Alone.
Bait of Satan: living free from the deadly trap of offense Group Book Discussion
One of the most deceptive snares Satan uses to get believers out of the will of God is offense. Most people who are ensnared by the bait of Satan don't even realize it. Don't be fooled! You will encounter offense, and it's up to you how it will affect your relationship with God.
Sunday mornings at 9am, Oct. 13 - Nov. 24. Led by Claudia Banqualls. Email to sign up.
Betrayed and Beyond
For those struggling with betrayal: Pure Desire groups give you the framework to process your pain with others who can truly empathize.

In this study we will be challenged to look at contrasting themes such as walking in the light instead of darkness, truth versus lies and deception, loving God more than loving the world, and the meaning of true fellowship and community rather than shallowness. This study reveals not only the heart of John but also the heart of Jesus. Cost of the study will be $25. Register online now.
