Children's Ministries

@ 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 from the Bible.  


kids love it here @...ways to connect

1.) Children's Church - a worship service for the kids. Children join together to praise the Lord at 10:30 am, Sundays. Kids' check in for worship is on the 2nd floor of our red brick Education building. Check in is done there by room. For Kids Worship, top notch teachers use solid Bible-based materials to strengthen and encourage kids in their faith in Jesus. Also, Nursery is also available during Worship on the 1st floor of the red brick Education building. Each month, on the last Sunday all children except nursery join family in the main worship service at 10:30 am. During all times, we have a trained volunteer security team on campus to keep these areas safe during Worship. The 8:30 am service does not have Nursery or Children's Church, but the Kids are 100% welcome in the 8:30 am service each week.

2.) Children's Sunday Morning Groups (Sunday School).  These age-graded small groups meet in the red brick Education building on Sundays, 9:30 am. This is the middle of our campus building closest to the road entrance. Check in is at the classrooms: on the 1st Floor for Preschool-aged, or, on the 2nd Floor for Grade School-aged kids. We use solid Bible lessons that connect kids' faith to real life. Each group meet up lasts until 10:20-25 am. Then kids are able to check in for kids worship service next. 

3.) Awana Kid's Club.  This fun, Bible-based kids program is Sundays 5:00-6:30 pm at Sandy Plains.  First-time kids are welcome at Awana too any week! Feel free to contact Director Hannah  for more info or questions.  The large Awana ministry will begin again in the Fall of 2021. 

4.) Vacation Bible School. We'll see you there in Summer-2021. Our annual VBS is a high caliber event in the community that helps children draw closer to or get to know about Jesus Christ as Savior and meet new friends. The kids have a blast at VBS each year! This is not to miss. Contact our office for info or to pre-register.

5.) Summer Kid's Camp @ Gardner Webb University. This camp in July 2021 is a great experience. Call the church office for more info regarding 2021 Kids Camp and safety steps the camps is taking for it. You can register now. Also, you may email  .

6.) Upward Sports.  Upward Basketball and Cheerleading are top notch programs for kids here. We have volunteers who lead teams of kids in this nationally-recognized sports & Christian devotionals program. Upward will take a break this Winter, due to Covid, and restart in Fall 2021. Reach out and contact Children's & Youth Director Hannah for any questions or info about Upward at,  . 

7.) Kid's Christmas and Easter Choir Musicals.  Contact church office for more info. Open to guest kids as well! Practices are Wednesday evenings in March for the Easter musical. Guest kids welcome! The Easter songs will be performed on Palm Sunday (March 28th, 2021) in the main worship service. Don't miss out!

8.) Wednesday Evening Kids - Sports Camps. There is a new socially-distanced kids ministry! These are ongoing sports camps Winter 2020-Spring 2021 at 6:30 pm in the Family Life Center, starting Dec. 2020. Any weeks it doesn't meet? Yes, major holiday weeks (Christmas, New Years, etc.). For info on attending, reach out to Director Hannah at  .


any other information for me?

As a ministry, our mission is to offer Kids hope without compromise. This flows into their families. We have hope in Jesus Christ and His love and the grace of God. 

As a parent or grandparent, do know each Kids and Security Team volunteer has an active, ongoing background check. This plus training sessions and multiple eyes in any space do ensure safety.  We have plainclothes security on campus who are trained in an ongoing way by professional security experts. We also watch access points for safety each week via Kids Team, Security Team, Greeters & Staff Team.  This ensures peace of mind. 

Also, for any child allergies, do inform us upon arrival at check in, and we will be active in helping ensure all is as needed for a child.

If you have questions, feel free to contact Hannah at  for more info or to register in advance. 

We look forward to you all being our guests @ Sandy Plains! This is a church home for you.
