Meet Foundations Church:

Foundations Church officially launched in January 2012. It was on November 11, 2011, that a few Foundations Church leaders held a worship gathering and approximately 800 people showed up to demonstrate their interest in a new church. In a very short amount of time, Foundations Church experienced God’s blessing in a tremendous way. Foundations opened a second campus in Windsor, Colorado in November 2019. Foundations Church has an undeniable welcoming and authentic worship environment. It is clear that God intends to use Foundations Church to make an eternal impact in Northern Colorado.
