Student Ministry

Our Vision

The Sherwood Student Ministry strives to partner with parents/guardians to develop fully devoted and equipped followers of Jesus Christ. Students are challenged to be biblically literate in a biblically illiterate world. Our desire is that students come to know, seek and obey Christ in daily surrender to His Lordship and become passionate about loving God and loving others.

Use Your Gifts

We want to help you use your gifts by serving others here at church. There are so many ways for you to get involved, but instead of telling you how to volunteer, we want you to be a little creative. Our goal is to help you find a way to serve others that lines up with the things you love and are already good at doing. Click the button below to find out how you can get started!
