Dear Friend,

It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to Sandy Plains Baptist Church. Sandy Plains is a loving and joyful Southern Baptist Church. Our services are full of laughter, joy, and praise. In John 10:10, Jesus said He not only came to give us eternal life in Heaven, but also abundant life here and now, so we “abundantly” live, serve and worship.

Sandy Plains also has wonderful ministries led by fantastic staff members. You will discover they are gifted, anointed and caring leaders who are here to serve God through their respective positions. I am so proud to have them serving with me. They, along with all our volunteer leaders, provide a dynamic ministry for all ages and interests.

My wife Connie and I would love the opportunity to meet you. I encourage you to visit us at 5323 Union Road.

Pastor Steve Hensley
