Join us for worship…
Take some time to center on God’s promises after your day of Saturday activities at this contemporary style worship service. Worshipers are led by piano and song leaders using a contemporary music style. This relaxed and intimate setting of worship offers relevant preaching that addresses the question of what it means to live a life as a Christian today. Each week, this service offers the Lord’s Supper, time for quiet prayer and the opportunity to be the community of God’s people. This service is a great alternative to Sunday morning worship. All people of all ages and all faith traditions are welcome!
Sunday 8:30, 9:45 and 11am
The pinnacle of Sheridan’s ministry is worshiping our loving God! More than 900 people will come through Sheridan’s doors on Sunday morning to hear yet again of Jesus’ love in their lives. We invite you to join in and experience this love of Jesus in a very real and authentic way at Sheridan. People often comment on Sheridan’s warm and inviting atmosphere, beautiful music, meaningful dramas and sermons that connect with everyday lives. These worship services are contemporary in music style and are led by excellent singers, piano, guitar players and drums. The Lord’s Supper is served each week at the 8:30am worship and twice a month at the 9:45 & 11am worship. All people of all ages and all faith traditions are welcome!
During the school year, September through April, a highlight of the week is to join in worship on Wednesday evenings as a part of Wednesdays @ the Well. This multi-sensory worship for all ages incorporates a casual environment great for the middle of the week recharge. People of all ages and all faith traditions are welcome to this midweek ministry that is a part of Sheridan’s Wednesdays @ the Well. This service is a great complement or alternative to weekend worship and The Lord’s Supper is served once a month.
God’s Wisdom in Nature Worship Schedule
Each summer as children finish school, families head out on the road, and friends gather each evening beneath sunsets and starry skies. After the long winter – made even longer this year – summer feels like a welcome friend who has returned. The reality is that summer is the time when memories are made. We seem to pay more attention to our surroundings. When we truly take the time to appreciate our environs, we can do nothing but praise our God of creation. God actually calls and expects us to do this. Even more, it grows our faith.
We believe that God can be made evident in all creation. Sadly, generations of people have neglected to see our world as a gift from God. As we grow in our desire and ability to be good stewards of this amazing gift, we actually revert back to ancient and biblical wisdom, namely that principles of God’s wisdom and truth can be seen in nature.
Our task, as people of faith, is to learn to see God’s wisdom and to realize our responsibility as stewards of creation. Worship this summer will help us do just that.
June 2 & 3: The Wisdom in Balanceselections from Genesis 1:1-2:25
Our world is here for us given as a gift from God. How we read the creation story has changed. It has to change! What is the proper way to receive a gift? How do we respond with both appreciation and care?
June 9 & 10: The Wisdom in AbundanceLuke 6:43-45
How one looks at the world is almost always a reflection of who they are. Jesus uses the analogy of a tree and its fruit to open us up to understanding ourselves and the abundance of his grace.
June 16 & 17: The Wisdom in SacrificeJohn 15:12-17
On Father’s Day we hear Jesus talk about his Father and we think about the legacy that fathers leave their children. We hope to bear the good fruit of our calling as “dad.”
June 23 & 24: The Wisdom in HumilityDeuteronomy 8:7-14
When God’s people were promised the land, God already knew human nature, that we get too full of ourselves and often forget our humble roots. The more we learn about our amazing creation, the more we realize how small we are in the essence of such a great gift.
June 30 & July 1: The Wisdom in DiversityColossians 1:15-23
On this Fourth of July weekend, we will reflect on the very nature of our diverse “melting pot” which is our great nation. Is our commitment to diversity getting better or worse? The walk has always been a challenge, but much like nature, the diversity of our collected components is precisely what makes us great.
July 7 & 8: The Wisdom in ChangeEcclesiastes 3:1-8
Nature teaches us through seasons, but slowing down in any place reveals the mystery of how nothing is ever static. God set our world in motion and grasping the concept of change opens us up God’s wisdom for us, that we are always growing, too.
July 14 & 15: The Wisdom in PowerPsalm 46
As Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano erupts we are reminded of the power of creation. God has always been linked to that power. Even more, God’s power has also always been available, in and through us in faith.
July 21 & 22: The Wisdom in PatienceJames 5:7-11a
Nothing in nature ever is rushed, but in fact, moves at its own pace and comes to completion without fail. Looking at how nature works gives us the perfect reminder of trusting in the ways of God.
July 28 & 29: The Wisdom in InterdependenceIsaiah 55:10-12
All the world is a network based on an ability to mutually serve every other portion of creation. God’s pattern in creation is that which we need to hear most, the world is not ours to consume, but rather it is for us to learn the very nature of God’s heart of both giving and receiving.
August 4 & 5: The Wisdom in Hopeselections from Psalm 40
Nature gives us hope, the very hope that God has proclaimed from the very dawn of time. We are hopeful in the midst of what we see and we carry that hope through our lives and towards eternity.

During the year, there are special times in the church where we celebrate the awesome gifts of God. At these times, we gather for special worship opportunities. Some of these special services are Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday & Lent, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday & Easter and Confirmation. Each of these times highlight key moments in the life of Jesus and the impact these moments have on our faith community. These historical events come alive in a contemporary way as the greatest story ever told is retold again. These services are listed in the bulletin and on our website and give specific times and dates. As with all worship at Sheridan – all are welcome!
