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.
Do you need prayer, encouragement and a place just to talk?
Stop by any Sunday in Living Room #1 (near the kitchen) at Bloomington East where you will find a Life Group Core Team member available for prayer and conversation.

Are you looking for short-term content in between studies? Or something to do during the summer? Check out the Sherwood Oaks Podcasts! These podcasts are posted weekly and are a way to dig deeper into applying the previous weeks sermon. You can watch and/or listen to the Podcasts, either together as a group or individually before the meeting. It's a great way to prompt conversations about applying the sermon content to our daily lives.
Check out all the Podcasts at socc.org/Podcast, or subscribe through your app store!
We encourage our Life Groups to continue praying for and supporting one another as we reach out to our One Life's. For each one of us, the progress will look and feel different. Some might be experiencing joys and progress while others are still working on the first "D". That's ok! The important thing is to not give up! It is a privilege to pray for each other and those that we are trying to share God's love with. Let's not give up our intercessory prayers for those that God has laid on our hearts.
1. Develop Friendship
2. Discover Stories
3. Discern Next Steps
We want you to be encouraged that each of our steps and results will look different. Be faithful and do whatever God has put in front of you to do for your One Life!
I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. I Cor 3:6
