what we believe


Foothills United Methodist Church is a place where…

  • you can find belonging
  • it’s okay to be real
  • we strive to serve the greater good
  • there is freedom that honors each person’s journey

Ministries at Foothills tend to fall into three broad categories:

How We Believe:

  • By being willing to engage, and wrestle with, the Bible.
  • By learning from the insight and wisdom of people who have gone before us in faith.
  • By valuing our, and respecting one another’s, personal experiences of God.
  • By thinking deeply and critically, because our heart can’t accept what our mind rejects.


Additional Information:


Leadership at Foothills is provided by deeply committed volunteers, a number of dedicated part-time staff members, and one full-time pastor.


Our ministries, programs, and infrastructure are funded through the generosity of those who consider Foothills UMC their church home.
