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.
Lead or Host a Group
We offer video curriculum, discussion guides, and a workshop to show you how to do it all without having to be an expert.
Group sign-ups last for 4 weeks beginning January 30th. Groups typically meet for about 12 weeks; beginning February 27th and ending May 22nd.
We have 3 types of groups that you can lead. Note: To lead an activity group or community group at Sandhills, we require that you be a member or are in the process of becoming a member. Membership is not required to lead a connect group.
1. Activity Groups - These are organized around common interests like working on cars or doing crafts but with a spiritual component. The expectation is that leaders will at least provide a devotional and have a time of prayer in addition to their activity.
2. Community Groups - These are traditional Bible studies that meet regularly and focus on the study of the Bible, prayer, fellowship, caring for one another and outreach.
3. Connect Groups - These are groups of about 2 to 4 people that meet for mentoring or discipleship. These groups are closed to new members and don't take attendance. 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 materials to use for a Bible study and will check in with the group a few times during the semester to see how things are going.
Spring 2022 Group sign-ups will start January 30, 2022.
Community groups are a key aspect of our church community; they help a large church to feel smaller. These are traditional Bible studies that meet regularly and focus on the study of the Bible, prayer, fellowship, caring for one another and outreach.
