Becoming a Titus 2 Woman - Leaving a Legacy
January 1st - December 31st, 2018
Do you love God and his word?
Do you have experience in life to share?
Do you have a heart to see women grow in their faith?
If you answered “yes” to those questions then you are ready to follow God’s command in Titus 2 to encourage and develop godliness in younger women—those younger in faith, in life experience as well as in years.
For ladies wishing to be mentors, there is a 10-12 week commitment for training. Carmen Roberson will be teaching the class and will be using "True Woman 201 - Interior Design" by Mary Kassian & Nancy Leigh Demoss as curriculum. Currently, mentor training is scheduled to resume in the Fall of 2018.
Anyone wishing to become a mentor or wanting to be mentored, please click 'register now' at the right to fill out the assessment form. We use these assessments to match mentors to mentees. We look forward to you becoming a part of our mentoring program.

Wise Up Weekend
February 23rd - February 25th, 2018
Wise up Weeked is a fun, fast paced weekend which focuses on God's blueprint for healthy relationships and how God wants to use us in those relationships.
The focus this year is OUTCAST. We see outcasts everyday—people who fit under a different stereotype, don’t look like us, like what we like, or believe the same things. It’s easy to walk away from the outcast, leaving them forever in that category, but Jesus never did. Instead, he walked into the difficulty of their lives to bring them the ultimate insider experience—belonging in his family.
Wise Up Weekend looks a little different from Encounter God in a few key areas:
- All the worship Sessions are held at the church
- Small groups will spend Friday and Saturday nights in host homes with their small group leaders. Host home will provide space for them to sleep, 2 meals and snacks and will help with transportation.
- Students will be brought to the church at 9:00 am on Sunday for pick up
- Recreation on Saturday will be at the Plex at the Village at Sandhills

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. Lunch and childcare will be provided.

We will be staying 5 nights in beachfront condos at The ElCaribe Resort in Daytona Beach Florida. We will have our meals, small groups and free time at the resort. The resort has two pools and ofcourse the BEACH! The beach has lifeguards. We will will spend our afternoons catching waves, playing games or sitting by the pool.
Our mornings and evenings will be filled worship led by The Rend Collective and Elevation Worship Band. We will hear truth from D.A. Horton and Greg Groeschel.
Our week culminates on Friday night when we worship on the beach by fire and hear students testimonies of how God has worked.
