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.
Center of Christmas Worship Schedule
What’s at the center of Christmas for you? We all have our many traditions – family, food, gifts, the tree – but what should be at the center? Without a doubt, Jesus should be at the very center of the season. The baby, who was the promise for us that there is so much beyond all of the other things that make up our life in this world, he is the reason for the season.
It is rather hard to place Jesus there, at the center of it all, isn’t it?
One problem we have is that those other things seem to become too much of a focus. “Tis the season, they say,” but it is a season of distractions, busy schedules and sometimes a sense of spiritual emptiness. We race and chase and shop ’til we drop. In many ways, the season is a sad reflection of how far away we have gotten from our faith. All of the good things that fill the season – our traditions, gift-giving and fellowshipping – can take us away from being centered on the very thing that is the center, the baby Jesus.
This season, let’s covenant together to center… and to place the right thing at the center. During the season of Advent we will approach worship in a bit of a different way. We will have times of silence and reflection built into every worship service, with the goal of calming the voices and pressures that take our eyes off of Jesus, who is the center and source of it all.
You will find worship comforting, inspiring and centering in this season. And Jesus will be here in our midst, as we await the glorious celebration of his birth.
Nov. 25 & 26: Necessary PreparationsMark 1:1-8
So the preparations begin. But what are we preparing for? John the Baptist asks the same question in a much different way. Making certain that we know where we are going, better ensures that we will not only get there, but enjoy the journey.
Dec. 2 & 3: The Peaceable KingdomIsaiah 11:1-10
Can we find peace in this season? How hard do we try? In this season we ought to be more about spiritual things, and yet how often do we put our faith-life on hold because we’re too busy doing other things?
Dec. 9 & 10: Sweet DreamsMatthew 1:18-25
Joseph had a dream about what the coming of Jesus would mean for him and the world. It was a sweet dream, as he was the first to know that his “son” would be the long-awaited Messiah. He spent that season preparing for the arrival of Jesus. He is a model for us. We should prepare like Joseph does.
Dec. 16 & 17: The Power of WorshipLuke 1:5-25
Zechariah, a common and humble man, was chosen to lead worship and had a powerful experience that changed him. He learned he would be the father of a prophet. He and Elizabeth became symbols of God’s greatness and parents of John the Baptist. Their journey teaches us how to prepare.

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!
