Sandy Plains United Methodist Church was organized in 1906 by Lumbee Methodists under a bush arbor and is now a stable pillar in the community. We are known for producing leaders in the community and the church. Over the past 50 years there have been 19 Christian Leaders — 16 of which have been clergy — who have come out of Sandy Plains. Pastor Prentis Harris, III, was raised in the Prospect community.
