Who is Sandbox Church?
We are a community of market place professionals, both married and single, with a desire to develop a deep and authentic faith, build rock-solid families and impact the community around us. We are imperfect people, rescued by a perfect Savior, growing into our God-given purpose together. We are committed to a life of love in our homes, our workplaces and our community.
In business, a sandbox is a place where one can fully develop an idea or product before releasing it. A core function of Sandbox church is leading people into the fullness of Christ in a safe environment where one can learn, grow and make mistakes. It is also a place of collaboration, unity and fusion of gifting. Our church is passionate about developing and launching our people beyond the Sandbox.
We are located at: 1415 S Voss Rd, Houston, TX 77057. Second Floor. We are in the same center as the Pei Wei on Voss Rd between San Felipe St and Woodway Dr.

We are located inside of a shopping center and we want to be as accommodating to our neighbors as we can. There is parking available near and around the CVS pharmacy. Feel free to also park around the Wells Fargo Bank.

“THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD” by Brent Phillips
Message Preview: Commonly used statements like "God controls everything" or "God allows me to suffer for His glory" are from the Calvinist tradition and have infiltrated Western church culture. This tradition has led us to a place where we misunderstand God's sovereignty. If we believe that God causes everything, both the good and the bad, then how can we pray for and believe that He wants to heal us? If we are honest, we don't truly believe God is good and this mindset causes us to look at God with mistrust. Jesus is perfect theology and all discrepancies in the Christian faith come because we don't know who God is. He's not trying to undo what God did: He is the embodiment of God. Jesus is all we need to understand everything we need to know about the character of God.
