Women's Ministry

The Women's Ministry at Sherwood exists to lead women to accept Christ as Lord and Savior, to develop intimacy with Christ through deep prayer, to study and trust the Word of God to guide their daily lives, and to effectively minister to others. This ministry, although based out of Sherwood Baptist Church, is truly a ministry to Albany and the surrounding communities. We have women of all backgrounds, denominations, and walks of life involved in the various aspects of our Women's Ministry.

Women’s Bible Studies and Opportunities

TUESDAYS @ 9:30 am
(Childcare provided, workbooks for purchase in the Source, homework encouraged)
Sermon on the Mount
August 16 – October 11
Fellowship 101 + 102, led by Faye Sharber
Many have only encountered the Sermon on the Mount in fragments, considering its subdivisions as complete teachings in their own right. What if we navigated these chapters as they were originally heard: as one cohesive, well-ordered message, challenging us to think differently about repentance, salvation, and sanctification? Seat yourself on a mountainside to learn at the feet of Jesus.
It's Not Too Late: How God Uses Imperfect People
October 18 – November 29
Fellowship 101 + 102, led by Faye Sharber
God frequently uses broken people to accomplish His purposes on earth. This six-session study looks at three men and three women of the Bible who were used mightily by God despite their previous mistakes. You too can learn to focus on the potential of your future, not the missteps of your past.
Precept: The Gospel of Mark
August 16 – October 18
Fellowship Center, led by Stephanie Bennett
The most important question you will ever answer is this: Who do you believe Jesus is? Mark’s account of Jesus’ life is more action-packed and fast-paced, and it gives you the answer. As you learn to carefully observe Mark's report, you’ll discover that Jesus left no doubt about who He claimed to be.
Precept: Ruth
October 25 – November 15
Fellowship Center, led by Stephanie Bennett
If you were a slave, who would buy your freedom? If you had an enemy, who would come to your defense? This rich study shows how Jesus both bought us (redeemer) and advocates (defends) for us, offering us an opportunity to rebuild our broken lives. A great short study to introduce women to a taste of inductive Bible study.
WEDNESDAYS @ 6:30 pm
(Childcare provided, workbooks for purchase in the Source, homework encouraged)
*All Wednesday classes will meet for a joint kick-off on Wednesday, August 10, in Fellowship 101-108 – “How and why we study the Word.”
August 17 – October 05
Fellowship 101 + 102, led by Susan Sanders
We live in a broken, sad, scary place. But true peace comes when we learn to hold God’s Word up to what worries us. Learn how we can practically take hold of the perfect peace that is only available through God as we dive deeply into His Word, embrace the practice of prayer, and live authentically in the support of our communities of faith.
Heaven, Hell, and Life After Death
October 12 – November 16
Fellowship 101 + 102, led by Susan Sanders
In this eye-opening study you’ll examine the Bible’s answers about death and what comes next. As you confront the inevitability of death in the context of the promise of heaven and the reality of hell, you will be challenged to examine your heart and find that, in grabbing hold of the hope of eternal life, the sting of death is replaced with peace.
(*no homework – work is done in class)
Precept: Romans, Part 1
August 17 – November 16
Fellowship 105 + 106, led by Kim Bland
All have sinned. There is none righteous. We are declared righteous by God only by faith in the blood of His Son. Romans 1-5 explains the foundational doctrines of our faith—original sin, justification, redemption, and propitiation. Gain an excellent grasp of the doctrine of salvation!
Women of the Word
August 17 – October 19
Fellowship 103 + 104, led by Lindsay Sebesta
How can we, as Christian women, keep our focus and sustain our passion when reading the Bible? This study provides a clear and concise plan you can use every time you open your Bible, equipping you to engage God's Word in a way that trains your mind and transforms your heart.
Wait: A Walk Through Psalms 31-60
August 17 – September 28
Fellowship 203, led by Shana Gotthardt
(*This study is for single women, ages 18-30)
How do we trust God through seasons of waiting and suffering? What do we do when it seems that we have been forgotten in our waiting? It is at these times and at every other time that we must run to the Lord knowing He is a refuge for our souls.
