Life Groups are a small group of folks (typcially 8 to 14 people) sharing life, caring for, growing, serving and studying God's word together. Interested in learning more? Send us your contact information and little about you through this form. Also, plan to attend a winter connecting event at your campus (scroll down for details)
Adopt A Widow or Shut-In - Bring a Merry Christmas to a widow or shut in from our Church family. Deliver a small gift, a plate of goodies or send a card with a warm greeting - you decide. Names are available at the welcome kiosk at each campus now through Christmas Eve.
Guest Services -December events - December is a busy month and plenty of guests are visiting. Join our Guest Services team and help out in areas such as parking lot greeting, door greeters, ushers and more. Friendly, warm faces are needed to make others feel welcome. Around for the Christmas weekend? Consider serving during one or more services. Contact Vickie to sign up.
Hoosier Hills Food Bank - The food bank is running 14,000 lbs short of food here at the end of the year. We want to help make up this short fall. Get your family and Life Group in on a collection of non-perishable foods. It doesn't cost much to add a few extra items as we are shopping. If we each do a little we can make up the shortfall! Drop off at the usual collection bins at your campus. Questions? Contact Norma Landgraff
Spiritual Discovery Groups Do you or someone in your group have an interest in being a part of a spiritual discovery group? We are looking for leaders to work in pairs and invite some of their friends, neighbors and colleagues to a discussion group. Training is provided. Contact John
More opportunities in our community can be found at Bloomington Volunteer Network.
The start of a new year is a great time to seek out a new group. Each campus will be having a connecting opportunity where you can meet others and find a good fit.

We all know (or are getting to know) the message of Jesus. We can learn much from examining his life, actions and example. Join in as we "Walk Like Jesus" and apply his principles in our own lives.
This winter we encourage you and your group to follow along with the 10 week sermon series. The sermon dates are February 10-April 14, 2019. There will be a work book for each person, available for purchase in the bookstore. Videos will be available online at WalkAsJesus.com.
Leader guides came be downloaded here.
There will be more resources coming to go along with this series so keep watching for updates!

Life Groups at Sherwood Oaks exist to help members:
Spiritual growth is important to Life Groups as it is a direct result of obeying Jesus' first, greatest commandment to us: to love the Lord our God with all our heart soul and mind.
Service should be about demonstrating God's love for others whether believer or not.
Relationships are important to Life Groups as Jesus demonstrated it as a priority in his life. Jesus spent a tremendous amount of time getting to know his disciples and followers in the common places of life.
Looking for a new study for your life group? We recommend these to start:
The Bible Project videos on You Tube - various topic, books of the Bible and historical background information.
