Sherwood Kids Calendar

 

During the 9:30 and 11:00 services, we provide age-appropriate environments where kids can grow in their relationship with Jesus.

Kids ages 0-24 months meet in the Nursery area, 2 year olds-kindergarteners meet in the Early Childhood area, and 1st-5th graders meet in the Elementary area. Here's a map of Sherwood Oaks classrooms. 

If you’re new to Sherwood Kids, enter the building through Door 4 and go to the welcome desk. The volunteer team there would be happy to help you get connected. If you have any questions before your visit, feel free to email us at kids@socc.org.

 

This program is for kids ages 3 years - 6th grade. During this time the kids will participate in our kids’ choir and AWANA--a dynamic, gospel-centered program that helps kids develop a biblical worldview. They will deepen their understanding of God and His Word, do various service projects, and prepare for choir performances.


Registration is $35 per child, but is waived if a parent or guardian volunteers on Wednesday evening. (If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us at kids@socc.org.)

At VBX Block Parties this year, your kids will learn that the Christian life is full twists and turns that can leave us feeling like we’ve taken one step forward and two steps back. Through crafts, games, and more, the kids will discover that Jesus is holy, trustworthy, forgiving, worth following, and for everyone. It will be a blast, so invite a friend and join us as we see how Jesus guides us through all the twists and turns of our lives and how following Him changes everything!

The Scout Oath

"On my honor I will do my best To do my duty to God and my country And to obey the Scout LawTo help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong mentally awake, and morally straight."

Cub Scout Pack 164 is part of the Wapehani District, under the Hoosier Trails Council and includes four dens:

  • Lions Den (Kindergarten)
  • Tiger Cubs (1st grade)
  • Wolf Cubs (2nd grade)
  • Bear Cubs (3rd grade)
  • Webelos (4th-5th grade)

Meetings
  • Den meetings are the 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month (Sept - April)
  • Pack meetings are generally the 2nd Tuesday of the month


You may join Cub Scouts at any point...if you're in fourth grade, you're welcome to join Webelos...no need to go back and do the other badges.


Annual Fee

Your annual fee is just $75 and includes admission to all Pack activities, such as skiing, tubing, Indian's baseball game, Holiday World trip, rock climbing, camping, and more! To cover additional costs we sell popcorn in September as our main fundraiser.


Other Costs

Uniforms and handbooks are available locally at the Hoosier Trails Council building east of Bloomington on the way to Nashville. Uniform requirements for new Scouts include the blue uniform shirt (most kids opt for the short sleeve size medium), a blue webbed belt, and a neckerchief, slide and book for your appropriate den (for example, a 2nd grader would need the blue shirt, belt, and a Wolf neckerchief/slide/book).The shirt and belt will hold patches and loops your child earns each year, the following years you will only need to buy the neckerchief/slide/book for your child's new den. Many kids opt to purchase hats as well, but it's not necessary. Few kids in our Pack purchase the pants/shorts/long shirts.
