1st Time Visitors
We welcome you to our morning worship service at 9:30 am in the Worship Center. You will find guest parking conveniently located in front of Sherwood's main entrance, at Doncaster Drive and Acker Drive, and in front of the atrium entrance on Barnesdale Way. If you park in another parking lot, shuttles can transfer you to several of the church entrances and return you near your vehicle after the service. Any of our greeters or members of our Connection Team are happy to assist your family and show you around the children's and youth areas, Welcome Desk and Worship Center.
The 9:30 am worship service usually ends around 10:45 am after worship and a biblical message from our pastor or guest speaker.
We would like to meet you and your family at the Welcome Desk in the Atrium after either morning worship service. From there, we can guide you to a Connect Group class (classes meet at 8:15 am and 11 am). Connect Groups are an important aspect of community life at Sherwood. 8:15 am Connect Groups are mainly for Senior and Median adults, and 11 am Connect Groups are available for all ages. The 11 am Connect Groups usually end around noon.
You can come about 30 minutes early if you'd like to check-in your children at our preschool and elementary facilities. Childcare is complimentary and we focus on sharing about the love of Jesus with your children in a safe environment. Children 1st - 5th grade remain with parents in the morning worship service at 9:30 and will go to their Connect Group (by grade/gender) at 11 am.
We hope you return for Evening worship Service at 6 pm.
We welcome you to come back to Sherwood for House of Prayer and our evening worship service. House of Prayer is a time where we gather to pray for our church, nation and those in need. House of Prayer begins at 5:30 pm in the worship center. Our evening worship service begins at 6 pm with a time of worship and a fresh message. Children will enjoy Kid's Rock on Sunday evenings at 6 pm in the Joy Building. Make sure to arrive a few minutes early to check children in at the guest check-in desk in the Joy Building.
We also invite you to Life University Wednesday evening programs at Sherwood. There are Bible Studies and activities for each member of your family beginning at 6:30 pm. Family Supper begins at 5 pm in the Fellowship Center. See the schedule of classes and activities and check out the Family Supper menu here.
If you have a child with special needs, there is a ministry available for your child and your family called the Buddy Ministry.
