Children's Ministry

@ 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 Service is during Sandy Plains' main Worship Service, 10:30 am Sundays.

2.) Then there are age-appropriate Children's Sunday School Classes as well during the same time as Adult & Teen Bible Study Groups, starting at 9:30 am Sundays.  

3.) Also, in addition to Worship Sundays, join us for Vacation Bible School.  Sign up .


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 of campus.

The Children's Entrance is marked with large outdoor brushed aluminum Children's Ministry signs above those doorways.  

Greeters and Staff also are available to 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 Jennifer 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).  Awana runs from September through May each year.  For additional info or questions, email Jennifer  .

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 times?

1.) Wednesdays @ 6:30 pm there's also a Adult Bible Study available, and also a Student Ministry available.  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).

3.) Sundays 6-7 pm, during the Sunday evening worship, there is a Children's Ministry in our Education Building in the middle of campus as well.


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.  

We have a fully operational background checked and trained Security-Hospitality Team at entrances every service at church, with a special eye to protecting kids.

We look forward to you being our guest soon @ Sandy Plains!
