1st Time Visitors
We welcome you to our morning worship service at 9 am or 11 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. Disposable masks are available (and optional) and hand santizer stations are set up around the church buildings.
Morning worship services include worship and a biblical message from our pastor or guest speaker. Ushers will seat your family 6 feet away from other households. Available seating is marked by dark tshirts over the chair. If you are unable to attend on campus, you may watch our live stream at 9 am at live.sherwoodbaptist.net, on our Facebook or YouTube page.
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 10 am). Connect Groups are an important aspect of community life at Sherwood. 8 am Connect Groups are mainly for Senior and Median adults, and 10 am Connect Groups are available for all ages. The 10 am Connect Groups usually end around 10:45 am to allow for you to be seated for the 11 am worship service.
Children enjoy Connect Groups and WeeCare in 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. Childcare check in is currently set up in the atrium for social distancing. All ages birth-5th grade meet in their Connect Group (by grade/gender) beginning at 10 am. Children 1st - 5th grade worship with parents in the morning worship service at 9 am or 11 am and ages birth-K5 will remain in WeeCare in the preschool facilities on the 1st floor of the Joy Building.
We are currently meeting 1-2 times monthly on campus for Evening worship Service at 6 pm.
We love Sunday nights at Sherwood! We are currently meeting on campus once or twice a month and worshiping online the other Sundays. 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. Other Sunday evenings will be an online service only. View the weekly schedule and check for online or in person/on campus dates on Response Plan page.
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. See the schedule of classes and activities here.
