What do I wear?
We welcome you to come dressed however you feel most comfortable. Some wear their "Sunday best", while others feel more comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt. The Lord does not care merely for the outward adorning, but looks on the heart.
Where do I go?
If you are coming for the worship service only, you can come to both the front entrance, located on 42nd Street, or the back entrance located on 43rd Street. If you are coming to our Sunday School / small group classes, you will find it easier to enter on 43rd Street. Either way, you will be greeted warmly by one of our members who will walk you to the appropriate place or classroom that you want to attend.
What do I bring?
If you have a Bible, please bring it. If you do not have one, Bibles are located in the pockets on the backside of each pew in the worship center. Everything we do and all the sermons preached, we pull directly from God's Word.
What will worship be like?
Our worship service is a blend of both old hymns and contemporary praise and worship songs. We enjoy the older hymns which contain incredible theology throughout, as well as the contemporary praise and worship songs that inspire opportunities to just sing out to our Lord.
What about my kids?
We love children here at Sherwood. During the Sunday School / small group time, we have classes and nursery for the various age groups and a check-in center to assure you of their safety while you are away from them. During the worship service, our nurseries for babies and toddlers are available to you. For children kindergarten age through 2nd grade, we have Children's Church available, or if you prefer, you may keep your children with you to worship together as a family in the sanctuary.
