Are you planning to visit us here at Sandy Springs UMC? Here are some answers to frequently asked questions to help make you feel as comfortable as possible when you join us.
Worship begins at 11:00 am every Sunday in the sanctuary located on the North Campus. It is a traditional worship service with hymns, a choir and even a organ. You are invited to sit wherever you like. Generally, on the first Sunday of the month, we offer Holy Communion, and the table is open to anyone who would come.
Attire is normally business casual, with the exception being “no-tie” July (and August) where the dress is more casual. Women are usually wearing slacks or dresses and men are usually wearing dress shirts and slacks. However, more than anything we want you to be comfortable, so come in whatever clothing helps you to worship God best.
Nursery care is provided during the Sunday School and Worship hours on Sunday morning for all children 3 and under. We practice Safe Sanctuary policies for all our children and youth The nursery is located on the first floor down the hall past the church office. Please see a greeter or an usher if you have trouble finding it and they will be happy to assist you.
Sunday School begins at 9:45 and lasts until 10:45. It is also held on the North Campus. We have classes for all ages. The children’s Sunday School meets on the 2nd floor and the youth meet on the 3rd floor. The various adult Sunday School classes meet throughout the building. More information on those classes can be found here (link to Sunday School page)
Restrooms are located on every floor with the main restrooms being on the first floor across from the church office.
North Campus and South Campus
If you are looking for any number of our weekly recreational activities (i.e. basketball, soccer, camps, dance), those are held on the South Campus behind the water tower. The pre-school and the afterschool program are also found on the South Campus. The North Campus is where the church office is located, where worship and Sunday School take place as well as where are youth group meets.
A quick way to remember the difference is that the South campus is behind the water tower and the North Campus is behind the fountain. Parking for the North Campus is located primarily behind the building with extra spaces along Mt. Vernon Hwy. Parking for the South Campus is in one of the two lots surrounding the building
