Sandia Presbyterian Church offers Sunday and weekday opportunities for all ages to grow through worship, study, service, and fellowship. Membership is not required to participate in any of these opportunities.
Our Wednesday evening program continues! Join us for a fun, friendly meal for all ages Wednesday evenings, followed by classes and activities that offer a variety of ways to grow in faith and friendships. This week we are having dinner from Garcia’s Kitchen. Gluten free and children friendly options are available every week; contact Megan Smith for more details. Dinner at 5:45pm in the Family Life Center: suggested donation of $5/person, $20 max/family. Activities 6:30-7:30pm. Sign up via the link https://goo.gl/6ZUHIR.
The choir sings each Sunday at 9:30am (occasionally at 8:15am), rehearsing Thursdays at 7:00pm. The blended service musicians handle the 8:15am service, rehearsing Wednesdays at 6:30pm. Soloists and small vocal groups perform regularly, as do a brass quintet and other instrumentalists. Children sing in worship occasionally. The contemporary worship service musicians sing each Sunday at 10:45am, rehearsing Tuesday evenings.
We believe that a healthy body and healthy recreation are important to spiritual and emotional health. Thus we encourage and promote a variety of activities for all ages and abilities, both within our congregation and for the larger community. Activities include Upward Basketball for grades 1-6; Wednesday basketball for adults, men's and women's 50+, and seniors: Dance It Up! monthly dances for developmentally disabled adults; pickleball; co-ed volleyball; golf outings; backpacking trips; and more.
Registration for boys and girls in grades 1-6 begins each year on the day after Labor Day and ends in early October. Practices begin in mid-November, and games are on Saturdays in January and February.
SUMMER Basketball Camp
Hoops of Hope Basketball Camp is a week of teaching Christian character
and great basketball fundamentals with Brent Fuqua, founder of “Hoops of Hope”. He has an MAT from University of North Carolina, two BA’s from Catawba College, is an ordained Pastor, a former high school basketball coach and physical education teacher and a basketball dribbler and handler extraordinaire (he’ll do his show during the week!) Brent loves the game almost as much as he loves the Lord, has led basketball ministries all around the world!
Dance It Up!
Dances for adults with disabilities are held in our gym each month (except in January and February during Upward Basketball). They are open to the community, for ages 18 and up.
