Join us for worship…

Saturday 5:30pm

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!

Wednesday 6pm

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.

A Fool for Love Worship Schedule

In life, and especially in love, no one wants to be called a fool. “To be taken for a fool” means that somehow we have failed in loving well enough or having the love we gave go unreciprocated. The pain surrounding our unrequited love is powerful and there is no other way to take it other than personally. Much of the embarrassment we experience is based on being perceived as unlovable by those near to us. The combination of our hurting hearts and the shame we feel around others makes it almost unbearable. Many of us would do almost anything to avoid “playing the fool.”

In 2018, Lent begins on St. Valentine’s Day and ends on April Fool’s Day. This year we have the reality of both love and foolishness. But then again, if we look closely at Jesus’ ministry and his walk to the Cross, we see that we’ve always had both foolishness and love. We see how Jesus often expressed his love for his disciples amidst a culture which was far more emotionally conservative than we are today. Jesus seemingly never worried about being a fool, rather he loved fully and well. Even more, Jesus was very foolish in his approach to ministry. He never tried to preserve his own life, but rather foolishly challenged any who failed to embrace the unending and unwavering love of God. His foolish choices ensured that he would die – and his death was the ultimate expression of love.

Join us in worship during this special season. We will focus on scenes from Jesus’ final days and how they are in concert with his life in ministry. We will also see how we might love more fully and be more fully loved.

Each of us can shape how we will be remembered at the end of our life. Will you be remembered for never being a fool, or will you be remembered for how deeply you loved? Jesus was a fool for love. How about you?

  • Feb. 17 & 18: Giving It Up To God

    Mark 3:19b-27 & Mark 14:32-42
    In Gethsemane, Jesus has a full understanding of what is to come. His choice to move forward, rather than fleeing under the cover of night, demonstrates his willingness to be a fool and his trust in God’s promises.
  • Feb. 24 & 25: Saying It Out Loud

    John 11:30-37 & John 13:31-35
    At the Last Supper, Jesus plainly tells his disciples of his love, which is consistent with how he expressed his love to his family and friends. This was a new way and it should become our way.
  • March 3 & 4: Allowing It To Happen

    Luke 12:4-7 & Luke 23:13-25
    Throughout his ministry, Jesus proclaimed what appeared to be a blind trust of the things of this world. By our standards his words seem foolish. He did the same before Pilate, keeping silent in his innocence, while watching the guilty Barabbas walk free. Yet, his love was always the motive and his love for each of us never left his mind.
  • March 10 & 11: Keeping Promises

    John 14:15-31 & Luke 23:39-43
    Jesus promised, rooted in his love, that God would send the Holy Spirit. Jesus promised to the robber who was dying that paradise awaits. When love is the focus, promises are made and kept, no matter the righteousness of the other.
  • March 17 & 18: Forgiving Fully

    Matthew 18:21-22 & Luke 23:32-39
    Jesus always proclaimed a radical forgiveness, which was far beyond the standards of his day. On the Cross, he lives what he proclaimed and fully forgives all those who don’t deserve it. Perfect love casts out all fear. As he dies, Jesus shows us perfect love.
