Elders are spiritual leaders in our church, each serving a three year term. Elders pray over the Lord's Supper, visit members who are sick or homebound, and serve as shepherds to small groups within our congregation. While candidates prepare for baptism, Elders come alongside to serve as mentors.
Foothills is proud to claim its status as a Stephen Ministry Congregation since 2009. Our Stephen Ministers are well trained to provide one-on-one Christian care to people who are hurting, struggling with life decisions, or just need someone to talk to. Care is given in a safe, comfortable, and confidential environment at no cost to the care receiver. To learn more, or to request a Stephen minister connection, contact the church office.
Interested in becoming a Stephen Minister and providing care for others in need? We are always looking for gifted, compassionate people who want to join us in ministry! Please contact Foothill's office at 623-516-9192 for more information.

Foothills has a robust knitting ministry that meets on Monday mornings. In addition to creating items for service projects such as knitting baby hats for a nearby NICU, our knitters also create prayer shawls. When someone is in the hospital, or experiencing grief off any kind we give prayer shawls as a physical presence of our love and prayers.
