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.

Precept: Joshua
9:30 am | Begins January 10
FELLOWSHIP CENTER | Stephanie Bennett
Where are the people not dismayed by the faces, the opinions, the opposition of others? Those who do not want to be dismayed—shaken by the storms and conflicts of life, but strong enough in character to stand for what God says is right and true? In this study of Joshua, learn what it means to know God, believe God, and get a grip on God and everything He has for you in this life so that you may not be ashamed in the life to come.

All Things New by Kelly Minter
9:30 am | Begins January 10
FELLOWSHIP 102 +107 | Faye Sharber
In this study of 2 Corinthians, explore the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meet Christ through a pressing thorn, open wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and learn what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.

Gideon by Priscilla Shirer
9:30 am | Begins March 7
FELLOWSHIP 102 +107 | Faye Sharber
IThis study will encourage you to recognize your weakness as the key that the Lord gives you to unlock the full experience of His strength in your life. Instead of ignoring, neglecting, or trying to escape your weaknesses, learn to see them as the gifts given specifically and strategically by God. If you've ever felt insufficient, ill-equipped, incompetent, or outnumbered, this study is for you.

What's more, a lack of time, emotionally driven approaches, and past frustrations can erode our resolve to keep growing in our knowledge of Scripture. This book will equip you to engage God's Word in a way that trains your mind and transforms your heart.

Begins January 11
FELLOWSHIP 101, 102, 107 + 108 | Virginia LaGrange

Precept: Romans, Part 1

FELLOWSHIP 105 + 106 | Kim Bland

Precept: Romans, Parts 2 + 3
Begins January 11
