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.
This summer our middle and high school students will be going TOGETHER to North Florida Christian Camp in Keystone Heights, FL. This will be a week full of awesome worship, dynamic teachings, and incredible activities such as paintball, tubing, the blob, and tons of other fun surprises. Our camp speaker this year is Pastor Garrett Grubbs, and our worship leader is Seth and Katie Brasher.
Families that register their students before April 15th will be able to secure the $260 early-bird rate. The price goes up to $300 on April 15th. A $75 deposit is due at registration for both the early-bird and regular price. The final balance for everyone going to summer camp is due on May 24th.
If you have any questions about ELEVATE Camp, please contact the student ministry office at (229) 883-1910 ext. 1220.
Soar higher, roar louder, get your feet wet and take a break from the daily summer routine. Join us on June 28th as we head to Wild Adventures for an awesome day of fun and fellowship! This trip is open to all middle and high school students and only costs $50*. The cost includes admission to the theme park/water park and a meal voucher for lunch. Students will need to bring money for dinner on the ride home and drinks/snacks in the park. Spots are limited, so register ASAP!
* Students who have season passes to Wild Adventures DO NOT have to purchase the $50 ticket. These students will be responsible for bringing money for lunch and dinner as they will NOT receive a meal voucher.
It gets hot in SWGA during the summers. Therefore, we will be doing ELEVATE at the Sports Park on June 30th and July 28th. These two nights will be filled with crazy water games, slip-n slides, dinner, and an awesome time of worship. These fun nights are open to all middle and high school students and there is no cost to attend.
Students are encouraged to wear swimsuits or clothing that can get wet. Most of the games and activities will be water-based and cause students to get soaked. Students who do not wish to get wet can still attend and are NOT required to participate in the water activities. Female swimsuits must be a one-piece swimsuit and not be revealing. If you have any questions about this event, please email us at [email protected].

SLU 101 provides a year’s worth of leadership development in just 4 days. This dynamic experience allows attendees to learn from world-class thought leaders in creative and participatory environments inside and outside of the conference room. SLU teaches each student practical and relational life skills to change the way they think, dream, and lead at the feet of Jesus.
As the summer comes to a close, the Sherwood Student Ministry goes to Panama City for a relaxing day at the beach and then heads over to Pier Park for dinner and shopping. This trip is open to all middle and high school students. The cost of the trip is $15 a student, but students will also need money for dinner at Pier Park and bring a sack lunch for lunch at the beach. We will have a cooler with cold water for students.
Students need to be ready to leave the church at 7 am. We will arrive home around 9:30 pm. If you have any questions or concerns about this trip, please contact the Student Ministry Office at [email protected] or call (229) 883-1910 ext. 1220.

Students will meet for worship at 6:45 pm during the summer.
ELEVATE has several fun activities for students. Most Wednesday nights, weather permitting, the student ministry also has basketball and 4-square outside in the parking lot. To cool off, students can visit the Elevate Café. Each Wednesday students can purchase frappes, sodas, candy and different food items! The Elevate Café, basketball area and game room area are open from 6 PM until 7:45 PM.
STUDENT Connect groups
At Sherwood, we believe spiritual growth is important. For that reason, we challenge every person to do life together with other believers in a Connect Group. A Connect Group is an environment of biblical community where students can feel welcome and accepted, encounter Christ and His Word and be discipled. Our groups spend time in God’s Word through Bible-based curriculum. Each group is encouraged to study the Bible weekly and hang out quarterly
CONNECT GROUPS MEET AT 11 am - noon.
