Groups

Grow in Christ. Join a Group!


Life Groups

Want to go deeper? Be more personal? Intimate? This is what life group is all about. More than a Bible study, life groups are intentional communities following Jesus together in sharing the Gospel. It is a place to belong, grow, and serve. Each week, life groups tackle the text of the sermon and dig deeper into personal application in a more personal and intimate setting.

Life group is a great place to connect and to be encouraged in reaching out to the world around you to be a bold follower of Jesus! There are several groups currently meeting throughout the week. Please contact the office for more details. Come let Jesus change you. Come be used to change others.

Current Groups You Could Join:

Eckle Life Group – Led by John Eckle, this group meets at the Gonzalez home in Mirrormont on Thursday nights @ 7:00 p.m.

Bell Life Group – Led by our Senior Pastor, John Bell, this group meets in the Bell home in the Renton Highlands near Lake Kathleen on Friday evenings @ 6:30 p.m.

Youth

Today’s youth face more challenges and issues than any other generation in history. This generation has been inundated since birth with technology and flashy gimmicks, which most youth are, frankly, sick of. At Foothills, we believe that our youth are not the church of tomorrow – they are the church of today. We don’t shy away from tough questions, but seek to help our young people interact with God’s Word to learn how it speaks into the problems and challenges they face each day. We give them real-life opportunities to impact their community to make a difference and to share Christ where He is not known.

FUEL - 6th – 12th grade

Youth Bible Study – Each Sunday, our Youth students gather to study Scripture together and to discuss how it applies to what they are dealing with in their daily lives. It is a time of fun, encouraging, and challenging interaction with the Living Word that fuels their growth in Christ. This is a challenging time of life, as your student tries to cope in the transition from childhood to teenager, and we are here to help. Our teachers give excellent guidance as they help these young people walk through a fun and difficult time of life. This class of 6th – 12th graders meets each Sunday at 9:30-10:45.

Impact - Youth Activities

Our youth come together for special activities, fellowship, travel outings, serving others, and more. Every event is different. Every session is built to make sure the impact is on your teen – in the church, our community, and the world. Watch the calendar and weekly bulletin for updates.


Adults

Each Sunday, our adults gather at 9:30 for a great time as we dig into God’s Word together. With each person bringing different questions and perspectives, you are sure to enjoy these encouraging times together as we seek to find out how God would have us grow as followers of Christ. This fall, each of our adult Bible Studies will study the Book of Acts; each with a different flavor and perspective.

We have three classes for adults on Sunday mornings that will begin again January 2017:

College/Career – Sit back, have some coffee, and talk with this group about the things that matter to your generation and what Scripture has to say about it. Come and enjoy this safe place for asking questions and pursuing the truth from the book of Genesis with other people just like you!

Genesis Unpacked – Join teacher Randy McClure as he leads this class through an interactive discussion on the book of Genesis. We’ll look at the incredible beginning of everything and how that beginning still impacts what is happening in our world today. We’ll talk about things we’re uncovering in personal study and struggle through what it means as we apply God’s Word in our lives.

Genesis Unpacked – Join teacher Gary Smith as he leads this third adult class on the book of Genesis. Engage in the discussion where it all came from so that you can better understand where we’re going. Join us, as we consider together how God’s plan for tomorrow can be seen from the very beginning of His story. Come be a part of this meaningful study for all!


Kids

Your children are the most important thing in the world to you…and that makes them important to us! More than that, we know that God loves your children and has charged you to raise them in a way that honors Him. We are here to help! At Foothills, we are dedicated to ministries that engage your children in fun ways that also introduce them to the great truths of God’s Word. We believe that one of the greatest ways to help families grow godly men and women is to help parents be the best parents they can be. Our activities are age-appropriate, and always leave you with a way to follow up!

Look at our different ministries below:

Nursery – Your little ones are always welcome to stay with you in all of our worship services. However, if you prefer a safe place where your child is cared for by quality caregivers while you worship and attend Bible study, our nursery is for you. The nursery is available for infants from birth to 24 months, from 9:20-12:15 each Sunday. You can relax, knowing that your baby is getting the care they need and the attention they deserve while you are engaged with the Lord.

Wee Worship – Your toddler might not be ready for school…but they are ready to learn about God’s love! This engaging time of worship, learning, and play is geared for children from 2 to 3 years of age. Your preschooler will interact with God’s Word through story, dramatic play, songs, and art. There’s Lots of friends and loads of fun, each Sunday from 10:50-12:15.

Bible Study – We think that children need Bible study just as much as adults do. That’s why we provide age-appropriate times of Bible study for your children while you are studying with your group. We offer children’s Bible study in the following age groups: Pre-K (Ages 2-4), Early Elementary (K-2nd Grades), and Older Elementary (3rd-5th Grades), from 9:30 to 10:45 on Sunday Mornings.

Children’s Worship – We believe that our children benefit from worshipping with their parents and seeing their parents worship. Our children get to experience worship with their parents before entering their own special time of Bible lessons, interactive songs, and creating art. Available for children 4 to 5th grade, from 11:20-12:15 most Sundays.


Family Worship Day  Generally, the final Sunday in each month is Family Worship Day when all school-aged children and teachers join their families for the entire worship hour. It is an opportunity for children to participate in the corporate worship of the church, and for our volunteers to be refreshed by time with the larger body.
