Serve at Sherwood Oaks this Summer

Posted by Emily Bedwell on

Summer is already in full swing, and it has left us with several volunteer openings that need to be filled! Whether you can give a day, an hour, or all summer, please consider stepping into these vital roles!

In the church

In the community


Our kids' ministries don't stop in the summer. All three campuses need help in every age group. Whether you can serve one Sunday a month or every week, we need you!

Sherwood Kids Tech at Bloomington East is looking for anyone interested in creative content production (video, photography, post-production, graphics, and more). Contact Alex at  


Sunday mornings can't happen without a great team of volunteers. We are looking for help running cameras, the song & sermon slides, lights, and sound. We'll train you and no experience is necessary! Contact Sherry at  .


  • Communion prep (done during the week), communion servers (done on Sundays).
  • Food Teams to serve and prepare funeral meals
  • Levites to help close up the building on Sundays
  • Licensed drivers to drop off and pick up people on Sundays
  • Connect Care, which is visiting the lonely or homebound

Community Needs

CASA Child Visitor Monitors

The shortage of CASA (Court-Appointed Special Advocates) has left a great need for volunteers to help at-risk kids and families. CASA is now accepting applications for Child Visit Monitors, a lower-commitment way of helping. They are looking for 100 volunteers. Fill out the application at or contact Norma at for more info.
