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.
We encourage women to "choose the best part" amidst the plethora of options they face in their daily lives. When Jesus enters the home of Mary and Martha, Martha busies herself in the kitchen while Mary sits at Christ's feet. Jesus says, "But one thing is necessary. Mary hath chosen the best part, which shall not be taken away from her" (Luke 10:42).
The Women's Ministry offers a variety of opportunities for women to help them with a variety of needs. Such needs include: knowing and walking with Christ, parenting, marriage building, relationship building, fellowship, encouragement, mission education, and many more.
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
Option #1: Precept Upon Precept
Genesis Parts 1 & 2
Start by immersing yourself in the biblical account of Creation in chapters one and two and be led to know your Creator in deeper ways, increasing your awe of Him. You will also gain insight into who you are in relationship to your Maker and will gain a more complete understanding of your own purpose and how to live. Genesis holds the keys to understanding the origin of sin and evil, the justice of God’s judgment, and the mercy of God’s plan for the redemption of mankind and hope for a lost and dying world. Truths found in chapters three through eleven of Genesis lay a solid foundation for the rest of the story.

Option #2: Anne Graham Lotz studies
Pursuing More of Jesus
If you want MORE than the bare minimum God has to offer, MORE than what the average Christian seems to settle for, MORE than just enough to get by, then join us in pursuing MORE of Jesus. In this dynamic study from John’s Gospel, you’ll spend time in the upper room with the disciples, absorbing all that was on the mind and heart of Jesus as He shared intimately with them during the Last Supper.
The Vision of His Glory (begins after Pursing More of Jesus study is completed.)
Without question, we are living in a rapidly changing world. The book of Revelation was written to help Christians who are experiencing pressure and problems, stress and suffering, crisis and change, to keep their focus on Jesus at such a time as this. This study helps to ignite hope when depressed, discouraged, deluded, or defeated.
