Welcome to sandy plains

Below you will find information and links to help you connect at Sandy Plains.

What to Expect

We are from all kinds of life situations and backgrounds, but at Sandy Plains Baptist most of all we are family in Jesus Christ.

Where?  We meet for worship @ 5323 Union Rd., Gastonia, NC 28056 .  When you arrive, go to the largest building on campus, the large Family Life Center (we outgrew the older chapel).  That's where we meet for Sunday morning Worship services, the older chapel couldn't hold hundreds of people.

When?  We meet @ 10:30 am Sundays for Worship.  The worship experience lasts 1 hour.  Guests always welcome.

What?  There  is an authentic group of Christians seeking to grow in their faith and people wanting to know more about Jesus. 

There will be worship songs sung by a praise team, band, and choir.  There will be lyrics on the screen so you're able to sing along easily.  There will be a Bible-based message from the Lead Pastor for real life that lifts up the name of Jesus.  In addition, it is an opportunity for new friendships.

Style?   There are lots of different styles of dress.   Come as you are.  Many do contemporary casual.  It's entirely up to you.

What else? We are a church that is a great place to connect.  We believe there are no perfect people, so you don't have to pretend life is perfect.  You'll find we're about God's grace and mercy and truth in Jesus Christ who is a great Savior.  So this is a place to grow stronger, you belong here!

Small Groups?  It's always good to build relationships with other Christians.  How?  We welcome you to try any  Small Group for community, plus how the Bible impacts life today, and prayer requests.  These are mainly at 9:30 am Sundays, or also Wednesdays 6:45 pm.  There's one for for all ages or life situations.  Children's ministry has Sunday school at the same time, which allows parents to be engaged in community easily.

For Kids or Students?  We also have excellent Children's, and also Student Ministries, at Sandy Plains Sunday mornings.  In addition, there are great programs year round for all ages.

Bottom line, there's something for you, and we're ready to walk by faith in Jesus alongside you as a church family.
