Kids' Ministries @ Sandy Plains
Welcome! Our goal is to help our children become true disciples of Jesus Christ by: building relationships with them, being examples for them and teaching them God’s Word.
children's ministry: sundays 9:30 am & 10:30 am
Sandy Plains has an excellent Children's Ministry! We're excited you're checking it out.
The main Worship Service Sundays is at 10:30 am. However, we have Children's Ministry during both Worship (10:30 am) and also the Bible Study Group hour (9:30 am).
Children's Ministry is in our dedicated Children's Building of the church campus. As you park, this is the brick building with Brushed Aluminum signs outside on it. These outside signs guide you to the exact age-graded entrance. Greeters outside of these entrances would love to guide you as well to the right spot any Sunday!
Nursery to K is called "The Meadows" (in Education Building - middle of campus) Outside the official check in you'll see the brushed aluminum sign for "The Meadows" to check in.
1st Grade to 6th Grade is called "The Highlands" (in Education Building - middle of campus) Outside the right entrance a brushed aluminum sign for "The Highlands" will be visible.
Sandy Plains' children's Director Donna Lowe coordinates a fun and God honoring ministry for Sundays, as well as Wednesday evening Awana Club program.

All teachers are required to submit to a thorough background check that is active, ongoing. In addition all teachers and helpers must attend training. Access points are set where only directors and parents can enter. And we have a fully operational background checked Security Team at entrances every service @ church, with a special eye to protecting kids.
We look forward to you being our guest soon!
