Foothills Mission Offering
Following the example of the Apostles, who asked churches to give for causes beyond their regular giving to support the work of their local church, (2 Cor. 8-9; Rom. 15:18-24), we will launch the Foothills Missions Offering (FMO). One offering, taken in one year, given to three causes.

- Local/Global Needs – Send Relief, NAMB/IMB
