Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of PromiseLand Church of Sherman is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads throughout the world.  We need regular everyday people to join with us in our goal to grow in faith, build relationships and change lives!  If you are looking for a place to develop & use your gifts and talents please know you are welcome here!

Worship & Music

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music and worship ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of PromiseLand Church of Sherman, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.


The usher team at PromiseLand Church of Sherman fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of PromiseLand of Sherman. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in audio format.

Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. PromiseLand Church  is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers to our Prayer Warriors team, pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and other prayer needs. During every service our Prayer Ministers take time to pray for those in need and those with prayer requests… If Prayer is Anything, Prayer is Everything!

Children’s Church

PromiseLand of Sherman offers a time of Children’s Church every Sunday.  This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons.

Youth Ministry (12-17)

At PromiseLand of Sherman we offer weekly teaching and times of fellowship to encourage our youth that they are not alone and they have people and a God that is on their side!  We host events and activities that allow for time of spiritual growth and fun!


Young Adult Ministry (18+)

At this age it is time to begin stepping into the calling God has placed on your life.  At PromiseLand of Sherman we utilize our Young Adults to assist in various ministry programs that will allow them to identify where their talents and gifts can be best used for the Kingdom of God.  The Young Adult Class meets at least monthly for a time of bible study and at other times for fellowship.

Married Couples Ministry

Marriage in today’s world takes work but it is well worth the effort!  At PromiseLand we encourage our married couples with times of fellowship and special events that allow relationships to be strengthened and lives to be encouraged.  Events and various opportunities of fellowship take place through out the year.

How Do I Meet People?

PromiseLand of Sherman is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at PromiseLand Church of Sherman.

Youth Ministry & Children’s Church

Each Sunday morning, children & youth get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child and young person gets to participate and learn.

Young Adults

Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The young adult group of PromiseLand of Sherman provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career aged young people.

Married Couples

Even though marriage is one of the most important institutions, it is the one which is under the most attack–internally and externally. PromiseLand Church gives married couples the opportunity to join together, connect and learn from each other as we learn from God.
