WILDSIDE & AFTERSHOCK (5TH – 8TH)We increase a strong, gospel-centered foundation in our students through studying the Word of God and living out biblical community in small groups. We intentionally partner with parents in helping students go deeper with each other, their leaders and, most importantly, God.
10:TEN (9TH – 12TH)We continue building gospel maturity in our students and help them grow in deeper relationships with each other, their leaders and, most importantly, the Lord. On a weekly basis, our students meet in small groups that are broken up by age and gender and, sometimes, location to learn and study God’s Word and to foster biblical community at a young age.
YOUNG ADULTS (POST HIGH SCHOOL – MID 20S)We pursue and live out gospel-centered community through D-Groups. Our discipleship groups (D-Groups) for young adults have the same purpose as all our D-Groups at Sherman Bible, but are specifically for young adults. These groups meet throughout the week for fellowship, care, prayer, accountability, sharing life stories and studying God’s Word. We encourage young adults to consider each other over themselves. We support one another, share our burdens and our victories.
In every one of our D-Groups, you’ll find:
- An intentional leader (to shepherd you)
- A relational environment (to build relationships)
- A reproducible result (to reach others)
FAMILY DISCIPLESHIPThe Sherman Bible Generational Ministry Team focuses on the gospel lived out through the Think Orange philosophy. The church, represented by the color yellow, is called to illuminate and bring the light of the gospel to a world that desperately needs it. The family, represented by the color red, is the lifeblood, the love and support that a family is designed to give. When the two colors of yellow and red merge, they form the more vibrant color, orange. We desire to merge the influences of family and church to create a greater influence in the lives of our children because combining two forces has greater impact than just two separate parts. This is why Sherman Bible is a Think Orange church!
We believe nothing is more important than a person’s relationship with God- not what job they have some day, what college they attend or any athletic or educational accolade. A passion for Jesus Christ and a life transformed by Him is the ultimate goal. No one has more spiritual influence in a child’s life than parents as God has placed that leadership on them; we as the church have no desire to replace the parent in their God-given role. Parents are the primary spiritual influence in their child’s life, whether they want to be or not, and they will teach through their own walk with God. For this reason, we partner with parents and families. We realize that no one has more potential to spiritually influence parents than the church, and parents’ influence greatly increases when the church partners with them. Parents need another voice reiterating the spiritual truths they are teaching at home. Parents also need the support of the church to walk through life alongside of their family- to rejoice with them when things are good and to stand alongside of them when life is tough. We also realize that the influence of the church greatly increases when parents partner with the church. The message of the gospel taught at church will take greater root in the lives of children when they see it modeled in the home. With synchronized efforts between church and home who have the same end in mind, we can expect the gospel to transform our children’s lives for a lifetime.
