Elementary Age Children's Classes
Kidz Connect - A safe place where we help your children (grades 1-5) connect with God. We meet together for a short opening time, then the children are divided into their respective classes: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. We look into God's Word to learn how to follow Him, using age-appropriate activities.
Bible study for students in middle school and high school, grades 6th - 12th. The Department of Youth and Families will strive to
...provide a safe haven from the world for youth in the Sandston area to find spiritual refreshment through times of worship, Bible study, and fellowship.
...help students at Sandston Baptist Church build a solid foundation of Biblical principles to apply to their lives and carry with them after high school. This includes understanding and living out the theme verse for SBC Youth - Romans 12:1-2.

...be a resource to parents of youth about youth culture, equipping them to continue ministering to their students at home.

The Branches Class - John 15:5 (teachers: Bonnie Abernathy & Chuck Sohn) (couples and singles, ages vary) - Our feeling is that you cant apply what you dont understand. With that in mind, and following the Bible as our study guide, we take an in-depth look at scripture verse by verse, examining the context and the intended purpose of the writer. Following a lecture format, encouraging questions and discussion, we look at historical and social background as well as the issues that the writer is addressing. In some cases we examine the original Greek and Hebrew word meanings to help clarify meaning of the overall passage. Having explored the scripture, we remember what Paul told Timothy while encouraging him in his ministry, Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all of this. 2 Timothy 2:7
