Foundations is our membership class, led by Pastor Tom Medeiros. Foundations meets every other month and consists of four Sunday afternoon sessions. Here’s where you learn all about Sandhills: what we believe, how we relate to God and each other, and how we reach out to our community.
One common question we hear is, “Why is this class required for membership? Shouldn’t being a member of Christ’s church be enough?” The Bible doesn’t address the issue of local church membership. The truth is, there is only one global church. However, we believe there are benefits to joining a local church.
Joining a church is like joining a family. You want to be with a group of people you can trust. You want to be in a church with leadership that you feel you can fully support. You will learn about the character and heart of this church and its leaders as they guide you through Foundations. You will also get to know other people on a more personal level as they take part in this class with you.
Whether you are just investigating Christianity or hold a theological degree, you will value the opportunity to explore what the Bible teaches about various elements of faith in Christ. You will also learn what the Christian and Missionary Alliance (our denomination) and Sandhills Community Church believe about various Biblical issues.
In order to become a member of Sandhills Community Church, you must attend one of our Foundations classes. Foundations meets every other month and consists of four Sunday afternoon sessions, each lasting 2.5 hours. It’s where you learn all about Sandhills and what it means to be a member. We discuss what we believe, why we do ministry the way that we do, and the expectations for members. It’s also a place where you can start to create lasting connections with other Sandhills attenders.
