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.

Elevate Student Ministries Services // Wednesday Nights in Hope 204

Elevate is our Wednesday night worship service for middle and high school students. Each week students get the opportunity to engage with God in worship, led by one of our student worship teams, and be challenged to hear from God's Word. The worship service for middle school begins at 6:15 pm and high school begins at 7:30 pm in the student worship area. 

Before the services students have an opportunity to grab a coffee, soda, pizza or hotdog from the Elevate Café which opens at 5 pm on Wednesday. We also open up our outdoor basketball area at 5 pm as well. Elevate is a great place to come on a Wednesday night. Hope to see you soon!
