Growth Groups exist to lead people towards a step of growth in their love and knowledge of Jesus Christ and their care for one another.
Life is better when it’s done together.
WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN A GROWTH GROUP…
Whether we are introverts or social butterflies, the Bible shows us that fellowship is at the core of being a follower of Jesus Christ. It is what Jesus clearly modeled in his ministry and what the early church practiced in Acts 2. If you call Foothill Church your home, we encourage you to join a Growth Group to learn through discussion, eat great food and build gospel-rooted relationships. If single, dating, married, young or old… Growth Groups have a home for you. Childcare is even available for those with children.
Our sermon-based groups meet weekly on varying days. Come and join a group to share food, open your bibles and grow together.
Our “Bonus Groups”, AKA interest-based groups, are perfect for building community through a span of different fellowship and activities.

What is a Growth Group?
Each Growth Group is made up of 10-16 people who meet weekly and are led by trained leaders that are Foothill Church covenant partners.
What kind of groups are available?
We have two different types of groups: sermon-based and interest-based groups. Sermon-based groups spend time in fellowship (often over a weekly meal), prayer and looking at the biblical text of the sermon for the upcoming week. In sermon-based groups you will have a time of facilitated discussion where we will talk about the sermon and how the gospel applies to our lives today. Bonus, or interest-based, groups focus on connecting people with similar interests like sports, arts and outdoor adventures. There really is a group for everyone!
How long does a group last?
Growth Groups generally follow the Fall and Spring semesters. Each semester the groups meet for 15 weeks.
When and where do they meet?
Growth Groups meet on various days and nights of the week in homes throughout the community.
Which group should I join?
Whatever works best for you. We suggest you join a group that you are able to commit to for the entire season. It takes time to develop relationships and commitment is part of that. Pick a group that works best for you based on your location, weekly schedule and stage in life.
What is the required commitment?
Joining a Growth Group requires a weekly commitment to attend the meetings and to come prepared! We have found that this commitment is the key to strong relationships and healthy groups.
What about Childcare?
Each Growth Group will deal with children differently. It is important to note whether or not a prospective group will welcome kids at their meetings (or secure a babysitter for their meetings) or encourage families to secure their own childcare.
How do I sign up?
Church wide sign-ups begin at the start of each new session. The best way is via the Foothill Church App or you can sign up online. You can also sign up during our weekend services at church via the Connection Card and you will be added into your requested group during the week if there is still room.
