Grow at Sherwood

We desire to partner with families and individuals to help each person grow into a deeper relationship with Christ. We invite you to join a Connect Group and mid-week Bible study this spring. We have activities and classes for preschoolers, children, youth, college students and adults. Connect Groups and weekly classes are provided so every member of the family can invest in spiritual growth and experience community life in a small group setting.

For questions about any of the following activities, please call the church office at (229) 883-1910.

FIRST STEP
JOY 209 +213
Meets the first Sunday of the month.
The First Steps Class is designed to partner with parents as they walk their children through the most important decision their child will ever make: salvation. We believe it is our responsibility, as the church, to equip parents to be the chief disciple-makers in their own home, and preparing and helping them walk this time in the life of their child is one
of the best ways to do it.

Serve Days

At Sherwood, the statement “Prayer leads us to love God, grow together, serve others and change the world” is something we live out. As we look for more ways to put this into practice, we are serving our community once a month through Serve Days. Bring your families and serve with your church as we impact Albany for Christ.
