One Life Update
Jan 02, 2020

How's it going with your OneLife?  

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

If you have any questions or stories to share, please feel free to contact Shawn Green.   

Did your group miss the 3D1 Training?  Contact Brad Pontius to signup for a session.

Life Group Core Values
Aug 01, 2019

Life Groups at Sherwood Oaks exist to help members:

Grow Spiritually:
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.

Serve Others:
Service should be about demonstrating God's love for others whether believer or not.

Build Relationships
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.

Multiply? This a term we use for encouraging everyone to make room for others who are not connected. Multiply means that while your group is growing closer and deeper, you recognize the need to include others rather than pulling our circles tighter. This can take on many different forms and each group should discuss what could work best for them.  Questions?  Contact any Core Team member or send us an email
