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, we have experienced God’s blessing in a tremendous way. 

We recently opened our second campus in Windsor, Colorado in September 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.

What it's Like to Live in Loveland, Colorado: 

Loveland is a growing, stand-alone community of approximately 77,000 residents. The Gallup and Healthways Well-Being Index recently ranked its citizens the third happiest in America. Three reasons for that finding are location, location, location! 

Loveland is less than an hour from three major universities: Colorado State University, University of Colorado, and the University of Northern Colorado. It’s 60 minutes from Denver International Airport and downtown Denver. Less than two hours from six world-class ski resorts, Colorado is blanketed in the winter with champagne-powder snow. It is also conveniently 30 miles from the entrance to the magnificent Rocky Mountain National Park.

This northern Colorado region is one of the most highly educated populations in the nation. Not surprisingly, there are great schools, several high-tech firms, a major-events center, music festivals, an expansive regional bike-trail system, designated open spaces with hiking trails, and the largest annual outdoor sculpture show in the nation at Loveland’s Benson Park (which permanently displays more than 160 bronze sculptures).

Although the northern Colorado population is by percentage one of the highest unchurched areas in the U.S. There are amazing opportunities for a potential harvest of changed lives for Christ through the continuing works of Foundations Church.
