A Liturgical Baptist Church? Really?

Foothills Fellowship is a baptist church.  We were founded over 40 years ago by a conservative baptist church planter, and our statement of faith would make most baptists very happy.  But join us on a Sunday morning, and you might seriously question our baptist roots.  Why?  Because we incorporate a good deal of liturgy in of our […]

Men’s Ministry Mosaic

One question I’m often asked is, “Does Foothills Fellowship have a men’s ministry?” My answer is “Yes, but it’s not a ‘traditional’ men’s ministry.” By that, I mean it’s not a ministry where men get together super-early in the morning for a Bible study and discussion around donuts and coffee. This actually has been offered […]

The Significance of Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday is important. It’s the day that we remember Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. It’s the beginning of what Christians call, “Holy Week” – a week that began with celebration and ended with Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection.  On that day long ago, Jesus entered Jerusalem for the last time.  Many times before, He had entered […]

Taming the Beast of Busyness (Part 2)

During the first quarter of 2016, Foothills is exploring the spiritual discipline of simplicity.  One of the main roadblocks to pursuing simplicity in our homes is the family schedule.  Does the “beast of busyness” lurk in your home? Are you enslaved by the demands of your family calendar? Do you know how to tame the […]

What Childlike Faith Looks Like

From our study this past Sunday in Luke 18, we learned a vital Kingdom principle: Whoever receives the Kingdom of God like a child will enter it. Child-like faith is required for entrance. Here’s the list I gave you on Sunday of what childlike faith looks like based on the brainstorming session I was a […]

The Constant Need to Simplify

We’re focusing on 4 spiritual disciplines this year as a church – one each quarter.  The first one is simplicity – simplifying our lives in order to make room for the Lord.  Often, our lives are so busy that we allow important things like our relationship with the Lord to get pushed aside.  Simplicity is […]

The “O” Antiphons

The Church has been singing and/or reciting the “O” Antiphons since at least the 7th century during Advent. These are the antiphons (verses to be recited or sung in response) that accompany the Magnificat from Luke 1:46-55. These antiphons use ancient biblical imagery drawn from the messianic hopes of the Old Testament to proclaim the coming […]

A Word for Foothills from Alistair Begg

He’s got a great Scottish accent; he’s funny; and he’s a poignant preacher.  He’s pastor and radio Bible teacher, Alistair Begg, and he gave a powerful message during the Clarus ’15 conference held at Desert Springs Church in Albuquerque this past Spring.  It’s a message I would love for our whole church to listen to […]
