@ Sandy Plains
Welcome! Our goal is to help our children become true followers of Jesus Christ by: building relationships with them, being examples for them and teaching them God’s Word.
You Belong Here
Sandy Plains has an excellent Children's Ministry!
We're excited to meet you all this Sunday morning for Bible Study and/or Worship Service.
1.) Children's Church worship is during Sandy Plains' main Worship Service, 10:30 am Sundays.
2.) Then there are aged appropriate kid's Sunday School Classes as well during the same time as Adult & Teen Bible Study Groups, starting at 9:30 am Sundays.
Children's Church & Sunday Schools are located inside our dedicated Children's Building of the church campus.
As you park, this is the two story brick building in the middle.
The exact entrance is marked with large Brushed Aluminum Children's Ministry signs outside on it.
These outside signs plus greeters can guide you to the exact age-graded entrance.
Nursery to K is called "The Meadows of Sandy Plains" (in Education Building - middle of campus) Outside the official check in you'll see the brushed aluminum sign for "The Meadows" check in entrance.
1st Grade to 6th Grade is called "The Highlands of Sandy Plains" (in Education Building - middle of campus). The outside entrance has a brushed aluminum sign visible above the door for "The Highlands".
Our full-time Children's Director Donna would love to answer any questions you may have as well.
what about other kids' ministry?
1.) We also have a great Awana Club program kids may join at any time. This is Wed.'s @ 6:30 pm. Awana Club is a fun activity and Bible learning club, used across the USA. The kids love it. This ministry for kids runs from early Sept to mid May each year. The club includes groups from ages 3 years to 6th grade. Each Wednesday it kicks off inside large Family Life Center building (the largest building on campus). For additional info or questions, email Donna
2.) Vacation Bible School. Each summer at Sandy Plains we prepare and provide a first class VBS program using solid kids materials.
3.) Upward Sports. This is a Jesus-centered, character building sports program, including Basketball and Cheer. It is 3 years old up through 6th grade. For more info, email Andrew at
4.) Special events. There are kids ministry events and Bible programs throughout the year as well. Join us in worship regularly to learn more about some great seasonal ministries.
Parents during other activities?
What is going on for parents during the Kid's ministry?
1.) Wednesdays @ 6:30 pm there's also a MOPS program (Mothers of Preschoolers) that meets 1st & 3rd Wednesdays of the month, while Awana Club kids meet. See any Staff for info, or call 704.864.4226.
2.) Sundays 9:30 am / 10:30 am. There are community groups, that study the Bible for practical, real life, called Adult Bible Study Groups. They are always open to first time guests. No matter where you are in your pursuing life with Jesus, you are welcome to these any week. Everyone after those then heads to the main Worship Service at 10:30 am in the Family Life Center (largest building on campus, we outgrew the chapel).
4.) Sundays 6-7 pm. During the Sunday evening worship, there is a Children's Ministry for the youngest kids, aged Nursery-K.
All teachers are required to submit to a thorough background check that is active, ongoing. In addition all teachers and helpers must attend trainings. Access points are set where only directors and parents can enter. And we have a fully operational background checked trained Security-Hospitality Team at entrances every service @ church, with a special eye to protecting kids.
We look forward to you being our guest soon @ Sandy Plains!
