"But the Holy Spirit will come upon you and give you power. Then you will tell everyone about me in Jerusalem, in all Judea, in Samaria, and everywhere in the world." – Acts 1:8
This, the last command given by Jesus Christ before His ascension to Heaven, is the foundation for our Global Focus. We do not exist to simply perpetuate our own existence. Foothills Community Church exists to share the love of God with a hurting and needy world. Consequently, we have a major focus on missions, both near and far, including the planting of new churches.
This focus on global missions leads us to send our people out to mission service, to pray for what God is doing worldwide, and to support global missions financially. Currently, 10% of all gifts and donations to our church go directly to our Missions Ministry. In addition, we hold an annual fundraising event related to the Rose Parade that is 100% dedicated to a special missions project.
“The church God blesses is the church that gets outside of itself!”
Our Missionaries and Missions we currently support:
