Foothills Family,

While this year has been unlike any other and we’ve had to adjust our sails, we see the work of God all around us. The year 2020 has been miraculous. We’ve consistently found ways to reach our community and serve others as we follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. We continue to work towards our mission of helping people find and follow Jesus.

Liz and I are truly grateful for each of you that have given of your time, your talents, and your treasures to help others Find and Follow Jesus. We are honored to serve alongside you.

As you look through this year’s review, you will see highlights that quantify all the Lord has done, but remember that each number represents a person. Let’s pause and celebrate the work of God that took place in 2020, despite how different this year has been. We know that our best days are ahead and can’t wait to see what God has in store in 2021!

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

The EF-3 tornado that devastated our community in April allowed Foothills the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Foothills staff and volunteers were some of the first “boots on the ground” to help remove debris, clean up rubble, repair homes, and minister to the hurting. We were also able to prepare, package, and distribute over 10,000 meals in a time when power was unavailable and a warm meal provided hope.

Meals Served

• Foothills worked closely and consistently with local organizations to help feed the hungry, provide meals, care for children in foster care, support foster families, help folks beat addiction, care for battered women, stop generational poverty, and provide Christmas for children.

• As a random act of kindness, Foothills also provided church members with a gift card and challenged them to use it to bless others in need.

• In addition, our Grill Trailer served meals at local law enforcement agencies, schools, and the humane society.

• In response to COVID-19, Foothills worked hard to show the love of Jesus to our community’s front-line workers. Care and snack baskets were provided to local first responders, firemen, and hospital staff. In addition, all Oconee County elementary school teachers and staff were showered with love and tokens of our appreciation the entire first week of the 2020-2021 school year. We are so grateful for those who sacrifice to keep us safe and well.
