Foothills Space Team
Our church is growing and changing and our building needs to as well. The Space Team consists of members of the congregation working to realize our vision to renovate our physical space.
Foothills shows us that the issue of space is
not a new problem.
We find ourselves today in a period of unprecedented growth, and our space is limiting our ability to live out our mission. We are on a multi-year journey, understanding our history, evaluating our space needs, and looking toward the future. There will be many opportunities to get involved along the way!

Each section lists input from church members and staff, analysis, and conclusions. Included in this report are also social justice and environmental considerations.

Urgent Space Needs
first time. Research and our own data tell us that once the sanctuary is 80% full, visitors feel it is too crowded and that there is no room for them.
