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.

ELEVATE also has several fun activities for students. In our game room students can play ping-pong, pool, and video games. This is a great place for them to have fun and fellowship with their friends. Most Wednesday nights, weather permitting; the student ministry also has basketball outside in the parking lot. To cool off, students can visit the ELEVATE Cafe. Each Wednesday students can purchase frappes, Cokes, candy and different food items!

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
