Our History

The congregation now known as Foothills Mennonite Church began in 1955 with families meeting in homes. Early in January of 1956, the group that grew to be known as North Hill Mennonite Mission commenced their own morning worship services complete with Sunday School. The formal organization of the North Hill Mennonite Church (NHMC) took place in November 1961. During the 1960’s, NHMC saw an increased growth in the size of the congregation and in the scope of its activities. In the mid-1960’s, land was purchased in the University Heights district and a new church building was constructed that is now known as Foothills Mennonite Church. Today we have a vibrant church community and offer one inter-generational service on Sunday, many church activities, as well as a strong education program.
