What to Expect
@ Sandy Plains
At Sandy Plains you will discover a warm group of people dedicated to following our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
We meet for Worship 10:30 am Sunday mornings. These 1 hour worship services are filled with powerful uplifting songs, a message for real life from the Bible, and times to encourage/greet one another.
When you're ready, there's also a great way to connect with other Christians. This is the Small Group ministry. Smaller groups are a way to build friendships, hear how the Bible applies to your life, discuss, and pray for prayer needs. Most meet Sundays at 9:30 am. Another option is Wednesdays at 6:45 pm. For info, simply see any Greeter outside, or Staff member.
From the moment you walk up to the building you can expect…
A Warm Greeting
Our greeters are near doorways to help you get settled and comfortable, to find the right place and welcome you!
If you're looking to build real friendships, we value creating those opportunities. This is a church family where we care about and build one another up in the Christian faith.
It is good to have levity as well as reverence. This is an atmosphere where we love joy, and in friendships you can form there is joy. We're a place that is serious about hope and joy, that comes from real connection with God and others.
Expect to be welcomed as a part of a church. We love to connect and get to know and encourage one another. Sandy Plains provides many ways to converse with other Christ followers. You've stumbled on a place in God's providence that cares about you.
We love music, all kinds of music. From contemporary worship songs, a few hymns, and a few other styles some times. We strive to hard work by God's grace to really use music to show our Lord how much we love and honor Him. This is a great place to serve too as you start to get connected at Sandy Plains.
Truth & love
The Bible tells us to speak the truth in love. Also, the Bible is God’s Truth. Sandy Plains Baptist Church is a place to explore, understand and apply God’s truth to our lives at every level. But we do this in a spirit of love. You will find a variety of resources to help you grow in God’s truth. We rejoice how the Lord shows us new insights into our lives on how to live the Christian life.

As you join us in worship this week:
Sunday morning Worship Service meets in the Family Life Center (FLC) building. This is the largest building on campus, as we outgrew the older chapel.
You'll find the style of dress covers the spectrum. Most prefer contemporary casual or casual. Some wear suits. No one will judge you on the style God puts on your heart here.
For more than just Sunday Worship, more detailed info can be found at these links:
Adult Bible Groups, or Student Ministry, or Children's Ministry are also meeting @ 9:30 am Sunday mornings. They meet in the education buildings on campus. Outside of it, greeters standing outside or at a door will direct you to the right place, for Small Groups at 9:30 am or Worship Service at 10:30 am.
Special note on: Children's Ministry. This is a faithful ministry, together representing many years of wisdom, and they have regular training, a love for God, background checks and know well how to teach and love kids. There are outdoors to initially direct you several large brushed aluminum signs for the Children Ministry entrances. There is a "Meadows" (Pre-K to K), and "Highlands" (1st grade-6th grade) guide sign. You may as you get closer ask any Staff or Greeter for exact directions, we would love to help. If you are visiting Children's Ministry for the first time, feel free to reach out in advance to Jennifer our full-time director of it,
Prayer Service sundays
God works when His people call out in Prayer. Do you need to see God do a work in your life or a person's life you care about or your community?
Join us at Prayer Service. We believe together that Prayer works. So meet up with us Sundays at 6pm in the Chapel on campus.
We serve a living God, and the Lord loves you. Our goal in Prayer & Worship is to put aside distractions and go to the Lord in real prayer. We aim to not just do religion, but to seek the living God.
Prayer Service has a Worship music set as well, it is open to anyone at any place in their Christian walk, and you're welcome to bring a friend. We also sometimes hold the Lord's Supper once a quarter and we often celebrate Baptism too during that time throughout the year.
Sandy Plains also has regular adult and children's Sports Ministries. There are:
- Upward Basketball and Cheerleading for kids seasonally.
- Adult Pick Up Basketball Thursdays seasonally.
- Adult Softball Saturdays seasonally.
- Trips to sports games as a group.
- Frisbee golf groups seasonally.
- And more.
Feel free to reach out to Pastor David, Pastor Andrew, or Adam or Jim or Beth others for info.
We look forward to seeing you Sundays at 10:30 am in the main Worship experience and even perhaps Sundays at 6 pm for Prayer service!
