Find your purpose,
Find your people
Find your place to serve! 

It's through serving that we find our purpose and our people and we want to help you find all three, including your place to serve. We believe that finding your place to serve could be one of the most powerful actions you can take to accelerate your faith forward. This page will give you an introduction to many of the ministries at Sherwood Oaks and how you can get started finding your people and your place to serve! Check out some of the stories of Sherwood Oaks folks who have found their place to serve and then scroll down and read a little about each ministry and how you can connect.

This will give you an idea of where you might be uniquely gifted to serve in the church. As you are taking the SHAPE test, please include Maggie Mobley's contact information ( ) on your test for follow up.

Glad you are considering joining us on their journey! 

 

 

The Communications Team handles all the digital and print media for Sherwood Oaks. We live in a time with one of the greatest communications shifts ever and we have the opportunity to reach further and faster with the message of the Good News of Jesus. From video and graphic creation to social media and website management and everything in between, if it's on a screen or a piece of paper, the Communications Team has helped design or create it. We are currently looking for anyone with an artistic touch or who loves social media and websites to help us take the message of Jesus into our community, region and around the world.
