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.
upcoming STUDENT EVENTS
JANUARY 13-16, 2023 | COST: $675
SLU 101 provides a year’s worth of leadership development in just four days. This dynamic experience allows attendees to learn from world-class thought leaders in creative and participatory environments inside and outside 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.
ELEVATE High School Retreat
FEBRUARY 17-19, 2023 | COST $115
Webster's dictionary defines the word "retreat" as a period of group withdrawal for prayer, study, meditation, or instruction. This is precisely what our retreat weekend will be focused on -- providing the teaching, instruction, and opportunities to learn and practice many spiritual habits that have been influential in the lives of believers for thousands of years.
Summer Camp 2023
MAY 28-31, 2023 | MIDDLE SCHOOL CAMP
MAY 31 - JUNE 3, 2023 | HIGH SCHOOL CAMP
ELEVATE Camp is an incredible experience full of awesome worship, dynamic teachings, and incredible activities such as paintball, tubing, the blob, the scream swing, and many other fun surprises. This summer, our middle and high school students will return to North Florida Christian Camp in Keystone Heights, Florida, for another great week of camp!
Student Connect Groups
CONNECT GROUPS MEET AT 11 am - noon.
Location | Hope Building
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
