Stories

Across all cultures, nations, languages, and customs, humanity has this in common: we learn to see the world through the lens of the stories that we’ve heard and believed. Stories have the power to encourage, restore, and inspire, and that is exactly what we hope to accomplish here.

Foothills Church is a community of stories because it is a community of shared lives. Each story is as unique as the person who lived it. Yet there is a commonality to each one as we live and grow together on our faith journey. We want you to be inspired through hearing the testimonies of people who have seen God’s provision through challenging times. Those who have seen victory in circumstances similar to yours.
