A Place to Belong and Believe
Being in community plays a large role in spiritual growth. Sandhills offers a variety of groups to help you #GetConnected. Our groups operate on a 2-semester (Fall and Spring) format with each semester lasting about 12 weeks. The groups study a variety of topics--from books of the Bible to subjects dealing with Christian living.
Join a Group
There are 3 Types of Groups You Can Join.
Community Groups – Community groups are a key aspect of our church community; they help a large church to feel smaller. Most meet weekly in the home of a group member (usually the leader's home). We try to keep them limited to about 12 people.
Activity Groups - Activity Groups are organized around common interests but also have a spiritual component. In addition to the activity, there is a time of devotional & prayer.
Sandhills University - Sandhills University is the place to go deep in your relationship with the Lord and with your understanding of the Bible. Our classes are often taught by some of the most prominent Bible teachers and professors in Columbia. Cost is $50.00 per person or $85.00 per couple. Cost does include books, class materials, lunch and childcare.
These are groups of about 2 to 4 people that meet for mentoring or discipleship. Some examples of these groups are a family that wants to commit to doing a Bible study together for a semester, a couple who wants to process a book on marriage together, or 2 people that meet for accountability. Pastor Tom can suggest material.

Personal or Group Outreach Idea
One way we show the Love of Christ in a practicle way is through Good News Care Packages. Assemble some of these bags for yourself or with your group, and keep them in your car. The next time you see a panhandler or a homeless person, give them one. These packages will help meet both practicle and spiritual needs.
