Our Services

What are services like?
25 minutes of music (a balance of new proven music and proven hymns). Piano and Guitar accompaniment. Sermons are Bible based, verse by verse with contemporary application. We seek to be relaxed and informal.

What is the community like?
Sherwood Shores is a lakeside community with both retirees, those with second homes and those with permanent residences. The church is open and desirous of membership to anyone who seeks fellowship and a place of Christian service.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Everyone is welcome! We will be delighted to share how to have a saving faith and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. A - Admit that you are a sinner. All of us fall short of the perfection that is demanded in order to have an eternal relationship with God. B - Believe that Jesus is God's Son. Jesus came to provide us the way to be perfectly right with God. He paid the debt of our sins. His perfect righteousness is applied to us if we by faith receive him as Savior and Master of our lives. C. Confess Jesus as your Savior and Lord. The Bible says we are to confess openly that Jesus is our Lord and that God raised Jesus from the dead. Such sincere trust and confession results in salvation. Call 903 821 6479 for help.
