Vision and Direction:
During this season at Foothill Community Church we are looking to embrace God, one another, and our neighbors like never before. We are actively seeking to identify and dismantle barriers to belonging for those already in our church and those who have yet to step foot inside. We are inviting those already in the FCC family to dive deeper into what it means to follow Christ through drawing near to God in vulnerability and authenticity, radically loving our neighbor, and sharing with others what God is doing among us.

Foothill Community Church firmly believes that diversity honors the image of God in humanity and brings immeasurable value to our work. Representation ensures that every person in our community has a voice at the table.  Women and men from all backgrounds, including historically underrepresented backgrounds, are strongly encouraged to apply.
