Adult Sunday School 

Related Strangers
This Sunday school class will attempt to survey some of the most important Christian documents from the first four Christian centuries that shed light on the relations between Christian Jews, Jews, and Gentile Christians; as well as texts that were used to define Christianity and Judaism. Special attention will be paid to the questions of the persistence of Jewish Christianity, the “parting of the ways” (when, where, how, and why?), and whether or not anti-Jewish polemic reflects the presence of Jews in the environment or is merely a tool for Christian self-definition.  We will use this lens to survey several New Testament texts as well as texts outside of the christian cannon.  We will also examine the metaphor of “the parting of the ways” among other metaphors ("mother-daughter”, "estranged brothers”  or perhaps "the ways that often parted”).

Meeting Location: Church Sanctuary

2-3 Year Olds*: This winter and spring the toddler class will be learning about who Jesus was and what he was like.  Lessons are based on the Gospels of Matthew, Luke, and John.  To see a week by week summary of our curriculum for 2-3 year olds, click here.

*If you would prefer for your child to remain in the nursery or move up early to the 4-5 Year Old Class, that is fine.  Just please let us know so our teachers can keep things straight!

4-5 Year Olds: This winter and spring the four and five year olds will be learning about Jesus by studying the Gospels of Matthew, Luke, and John.  The class has a special emphasis on what it means to be a part of the family of God.  To see a week by week summary of our curriculum for 4-5 year olds, click here.

1st-2nd Grade: This winter the first and second grade class will be studying the person of Christ as revealed in the Gospels, emphasizing his role as as a servant.  In the spring this series will continue by looking at God’s servants in the Old and New Testaments.  Each lesson will emphasize how the service of these biblical figures should point us to the suffering servant, Jesus Christ.  To see a week by week summary of our curriculum for early elementary school aged children, click here.

3rd-5th Grade: This winter our third through fifth grade class will be studying Acts and Romans.  In the spring this class will study the other letters of Paul.  To see a week by week summary of our curriculum for middle-later elementary school aged children, click here.

Middle School/High School: The Jr. and Senior High students are currently going through the cycles in Judges. They are evaluating these stories in their context, seeing the dangers of when "everyone did what was right in their own eyes," and connecting the lessons to our lives today.

Youth

Our youth ministry is for the Middle and High School students of Sandhills, their families, and their friends.

We want the youth of Sandhills to know God and who he made them to be. We want them to glorify God and enjoy him forever. Most of all we want them to know the salvation proclaimed in the good news of Jesus, to be changed because they know it, and to desire to share that good news with others.

See our Photo Album for pictures of past events and trips. If you have questions about our ministry to youth and families, please contact our Assistant Director of Education, Blake Willard, at bwillard09@gmail.com.

SMALL GROUPS

Community GROUPS

Small groups are a way for the body of Christ to experience community with one another and for members of those groups to minister to one another, according to the needs of particular individuals and groups.  In other words, our small groups strive for genuine biblical fellowship, which includes sharing our lives with one another, encouraging one another, challenging one another, praying for one another, and helping one another according to the picture in Ephesians 4:15-16.  To accomplish this purpose, a typical small group meeting consists of fellowship, application of the Bible, and prayer.

Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.  From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work. Eph. 4:15-16

Our small group descriptions are descriptive and not prescriptive, anyone is welcome to join any group! If you are interested in joining or hosting/facilitating a group, or if you have any questions about this ministry, please contact Scott Boulton at rscottboulton@gmail.com or Jacob Skogen at jacob.skogen@gmail.com

W.I.C. (Women In the Church)

The purpose of  Women In the Church is that every woman know Christ personally and be committed to extending His Kingdom in her life, home, church, community, and the world.

The framework of the Women In the Church ministry provides an opportunity for each woman to discern and exercise her gifts and abilities to the glory of God in the total work and worship of the church.

The goal is that this purpose will become a reality as women are given opportunities to respond to the Gospel and to pray, study the Scriptures, fellowship and serve the Lord together.
