The Women's Ministry at Sherwood exists to lead women to accept Christ as Lord and Savior, to develop intimacy with Christ through deep prayer, to study and trust the Word of God to guide their daily lives, and to effectively minister to others.
We encourage women to "choose the best part" amidst the plethora of options they face in their daily lives. When Jesus enters the home of Mary and Martha, Martha busies herself in the kitchen while Mary sits at Christ's feet. Jesus says, "But one thing is necessary. Mary hath chosen the best part, which shall not be taken away from her" (Luke 10:42).
The Women's Ministry offers a variety of opportunities for women to help them with a variety of needs. Such needs include: knowing and walking with Christ, parenting, marriage building, relationship building, fellowship, encouragement, mission education, and many more.
This ministry, although based out of Sherwood Baptist Church, is truly a ministry to Albany and the surrounding communities. We have women of all backgrounds, denominations, and walks of life involved in the various aspects of our Women's Ministry.
We offer Bible Studies, luncheons/dinners, fellowships, counseling, mentoring, support groups, and conferences.
