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.

The pinnacle of Sheridan’s ministry is worshiping our loving God on Sunday morning. We invite you to join in and experience the 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.
Current Worship Series: Getting It Right
We all sense it. Something doesn’t quite seem right in the world these days. Even more, it doesn’t seem like things should be this broken. Really. As a nation we are far wealthier than we ever have been. We are experiencing a longer trajectory of peace than ever before. Technology is advancing at breakneck speed. We are virtually always connected to others and entertainment. Yet we can’t seem to get out of our own way. We’re busier, more burned out and seemingly more angry than ever before. We are easily able to find a group of “others” to hate, as we have many voices directing us to do just that. We can listen to find bandwagons upon which we could jump. Yet none of these options seem to make us feel much better, does it?
Questions abound. Why are so many so unhappy? How can we break this cycle? Even more importantly, what can we do about this for ourselves, our family and our community?
In his new book, Nebraska Senator (and faithful Lutheran), Ben Sasse, takes a hard look at what is plaguing our society right now, how we so easily divide ourselves and how many choose to hate “them.” Underlying and undergirding his message is his commitment to faith and community, seeking primarily to restore a sense of community and the dignity of every soul.
This fall we will look at how church (worship) can be a source of reconciliation in this rapidly fracturing society. The problems are numerous, but it is fairly easy to see that if we intentionally seek to invest into our identity, family, community and faith, we will find ourselves better equipped and poised to be immune from so much of what we feel is wrong with our society today.
Often times we fail to see the truths that are evident right in front of us. Come worship our God who calls us to love and experience our resolve to get things right.
Isaiah 41:8-10 & Luke 6:27-42
We are more connected to others than ever before. Why, then, are we all so lonely?
How do you define yourself? As part of a community first or as an individual or core family? This has changed in our nation and altered how we choose to live.
Do you think about who you are and how you connect? How much intentionality do you give to your children about their identity? Do you cultivate a sense of being or do you let this just happen?
One of the single greatest differences in our world is how we work. Labor is supposed to be celebrated and root us in community. Is this what you experience?
Proverbs 1:7 & 3:13-18
Parents who see the big picture are those who raise well-adjusted and successful children. On Rally Day we celebrate the wisdom cultivated within families.
In a world seemingly filled with exclusively positive feedback, how do we come to understand that we are primarily broken and in need of a Savior?
Social media and news outlets have learned that there is big money in telling us that every opinion matters and gives us what we want to hear to divide us. How much are we listening? How has this affected our humility?
Where are your roots? Are they getting stronger? How can you strengthen them? For all of our pursuits in life, having deep roots ultimately serves to bring the greatest satisfaction.
Creating a sense of personal and family discipline is key in ensuring a lasting identity. Have you looked at your habits and sought to create ones that make a difference in life?
Few things galvanize our relationships more than serving side-by-side as family, friends and community.

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 highlights 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!
