Outreach

Mission

The mission of Foothills Christian Church outreach is to bring love, hope, and compassion as well as share the Love of Jesus with our community through meeting physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Our outreach has many areas in which we reach out to the multiple needs in our community.

Food Pantry

Our food pantry is open to anyone in need on Fridays from 12 pm to 3pm. We serve many areas in the Treasure Valley from Mountain Home to Ontario, and feed thousands of people each month.

Clothes Closet

Our Clothes closet provides clothing and coats all year free of charge.

Prison Ministry

The prison ministry is very dedicated to praying and visiting and bringing the love and hope of Jesus to those whom are incarcerated.

Foster Care Relief

Many Children in the Treasure Valley have been removed from there homes and placed in Foster Homes. At Foothills we believe all these children are very special and we are involved in their life by providing dinner and activities once a month for the children while the parents get a much need night away. We have a wonderful support team of volunteers who dedicate many hours per month to this evening.

Military Care Relief

The mission of the ministry is to encourage and uplift members of our military as well as their families. We are currently collecting donations and letters of encouragement for care packages to be sent to local service men and women who are on deployment.

Justice Ministry

“Slavery occurs when one person completely controls another person, using violence or the threat of violence to maintain that control, exploits them economically, pays them nothing, and they cannot walk away” (The CNN Freedom Project).

As a ministry at Foothills, everything we do in the justice ministry is specifically designed with that one person in mind.

Over the past few years, we have used funds from Just Grounds to provide direct services to local human trafficking victims, taken funds from art auctions to support the work of International Justice Mission and supported Free the Girls, an organization helping survivors of human trafficking start their own businesses.

We would love to talk with you and help you discover simple steps you can take to make a difference.
