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.
#ThisMatters Worship Schedule
Each August most families are confronted with the reality of too many choices. How are we to choose what is best for our family and kids? Just because we can do something, doesn’t make it the best option. Just because other families are doing it, doesn’t mean that we should, too. How do we figure it all out?
The holistic health of a family is no different than that of any person. Basically, doing the things that matter makes for the strongest, most united and high functioning families. The work of discerning that “this matters” is truly the work of our life. And discerning is done best in community with each other.
In recent years Sheridan’s ministry has been about the process of discerning. Your staff does this reflection in community. We talk at length on which ministries are best for us to engage in. We believe what we offer truly matters in life to you, who call Sheridan your church home.
This fall we will lift up the ministries of the church and discuss in worship why #ThisMatters. We will look at what we do, but we will also engage in the more important understanding of “how” we do what we do. So often families (and churches) get stuck in the habit of doing good things in bad ways. Looking closely at the principles of what to do and how to do them, we will see how a life lived doing what matters creates a most fulfilling life, indeed!
Worship with us this fall. Engage in ministry. Grow your faith and your family. Invite others to see how amazing this community is. #ThisMatters

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!
