A Family that Serves Together
Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
II Corinthians 5:20-21
Astoria, New York
Supporting and working together with new church plants in the multicultural and diverse community in the borough of Queens. A veritable melting pot of multiple nations, with close to 80,000 people in less than 4 square miles. Inspired by the founding pastors' and their families' vision to make Astoria a better place to live by spreading the good news of the Gospel and the Christian attitudes of generosity and service, we can meet and reach the manifold cultures that are spread throughout the world and yet represented in Astoria. Several groups from Sherwood Baptist travel each year to New York to provide practical hands-on help in this mission effort with Connection Church.
Manna Worldwide Feeding Centers
and The Rodriguez Home for Girls (Orphanage & Adoption Agency)
Working together and supporting the efforts of Manna Worldwide in this godly endeavor to provide the practical needs of food, shelter and Biblical instruction to those who cannot provide for themselves. Groups from Sherwood Baptist travel to Panama each year to help wherever needed, providing assistance with everything - from manual construction labor - to food service and cleanup - to children Bible stories and lessons.
Nuevo Jardin, Peru
New Church Established in a Village on the Banks of the Pachana River, a Tributary off the Amazon River
Sherwood Baptist Church is working with our very own, brand new church plant and sister church located in the Loreto Region of the jungles and rain forest of Peru. With a God-given vision to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a previously un-reached people group in the Amazon Jungle, we continue to travel multiple times each year to this difficult-to-reach and primitive area to tell others about the saving grace obtainable through faith. The church and people of the Nuevo Jardin Village are kind, welcoming, and beautiful to know and have fully embraced their new-found faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are looking forward to joining with this newly founded church to reach other similar villages located in that same region of the Amazon jungle.
