Monday and Tuesday Morning Prayer Ministry

As the congregation of Foothills grows, ​so does the need for a devoted, deepening and dynamic prayer ministry.
Two opportunities are available to serve in the Foothills Prayer Ministry:

Prayer ​Group: Meets each Tuesday from 10:00 am to 11:00 am in the ​Small Group Room. During their time together, they join the ministers and staff in prayer for each prayer request received during the week. They also pray for those with long-term needs and for all the programs in the church.

​Fellowship Prayer Ministry: Meets each Tuesday at 8:00 am at the Rancho San Diego Denny’s on Jamacha rd. They pray for those who request prayers and healing.
If you feel called to become a “prayer partner” for our church, please contact us. You will find that your own blessings and joys abound as you share in this gift of God’s grace. For questions or more information about the Monday Group, call the church offices at 619-670-4009. Prayer requests can also be submitted in writing during services and deposited in the white prayers boxes on the walls in the narthex.
