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.

Women's Groups:

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. You will begin to understand the true nature of forgiveness and how to establish healthy boundaries in your relationships. You will also see how the pain of another person's addiction has deepened your own wounds from the past. This is a 12 week class. Call for next start date.
