The Spring Banquet is our annual fundraising event to support Foothills Community Christian School. This one night event is among the largest in Great Falls and provides an opportunity to interact with Foothills students and families, learn about Foothills and our impact within the Great Falls Community and assist with raising funds to keep a Foothills education accessible for families.

Foothills annually invites a prominent public speaker to help share an uplifting message to our community. Past speakers have included Dr. Benjamin Carson, Jace and Missy Robertson, Tim Tebow, Mike Huckabee, Benjamin Watson and many others.
