Join us for worship…
Take some time to center in 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.
Stewarding the Good Worship Schedule
In 2017 a Harvard University study revealed that parents who raised “good” kids have some particular things in common. As parents they did some specific things well and they effectively stewarded their parental responsibilities. What is interesting is that these parents worried less about being “liked” by their kids and more about instilling certain attitudes and behaviors. While this is good news for today’s parents, it is also affirming news for each of us. The true lesson for each of us is in how we might be good stewards of our own living.
The common traits identified in “successful” parents are that they spend quality time with their children, show themselves to be a quality role model for their children, teach their children to care for others, set high ethical expectations, encourage their children to practice gratitude and teach their children to see the big picture. Over the course of January and February we will study these traits and how we can best steward ourselves toward “the good life.”
January usually includes spending time reflecting on the bigger picture. At Sheridan we will collectively reflect on how well we are doing with the good that we’ve been given. Using the principles from the Harvard University study, we will examine what characteristics we ought to be exhibiting to our children. We know, if we can master these we will have become better stewards of our whole life, including our time, talent and treasures.
Jan. 6 & 7: Quality Time
Jan. 13 & 14: Role Model
Jan. 20 & 21: Caring for Others
Jan. 27 & 28: High Expectations
Feb. 3 & 4: Practicing Gratitude
Feb. 10 & 11: Seeing the Big Picture

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!
