Response Plan

IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR JANUARY 24:
As the number of COVID-19 cases in our community continues to rise, Sherwood has decided to not meet on campus on the week of January 24 for worship, Connect Groups or on-campus mid-week activities.

We will provide online streaming of our Sunday services at 9 am, 11 am and 6 pm on our website, YouTube and Facebook. This Sunday, January 24, Tom Elliff will share a message with us in the morning services. Make plans to watch with us at 9 am or 11 am online. Please note: the 11 am service streaming will be a recording of the 9 am service. At 6 pm, we will stream a pre-recorded service. Please select the image below to watch online services.

We plan to release an email on Wednesday, January 27, with further information about returning to campus. Sign up to receive our weekly email updates here.

We have started back small group ministries on campus! This includes Sunday morning Connect Groups and Wednesday night Life University classes. If any class members feel uncomfortable attending in person, WiFi is available at the church so teachers can connect with them digitally during class. View the documents below for Level 2.2 details of when your family should attend Connect Group and worship service.

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 starting Serve Sundays. Once a month, we will serve our community through things like prayer walks, visitation, food deliveries, call lists, prayers for the incarcerated and more. Make sure to save the dates below and stay tuned for more information on how and where to sign up. Bring your family and serve with your church as we impact Albany for Christ.
