Sheridan encourages spiritual formation in adults leading to transformation, growing in understanding of God’s unconditional grace and love. As much as Jesus loved children, he called adults to be his disciples, to be transformed and be agents of change in our world. The Bible has many stories of Jesus teaching adults and blessing the children.
Adult faith formation takes on various forms and activities that include focused learning on Biblical topics, meaningful conversation, attentive listening, and practicing the disciplines of a Christian way of life. Sheridan’s ministry for adults, in all of the various seasons of life, strives to help us live God’s promises as the family of God and to equip all of us to be formed and transformed as disciples of Christ.
Adults may join classes at any time. Registration is indicated if needed to attend.
Any needed class resources may be purchased on your own or at our OneSent Market just off of the Great Hall.

Lunch Table Theology
1st Thursday of the month; noon; Rock-n-Joes, 5025 Lindberg St
Lunch Table Theology is a study designed for open discussion to grow and deepen faith. This study is open to everyone and participants can join at any time. The book currently being studied is Red Sea Rules by Robert Morgan, which offers ten strategies for dealing with hard times in order to move from fear to faith—a divine protocol for handling life. Just as Moses and the Israelites became trapped between Pharaoh’s rushing armies and the uncrossable Red Sea, so are we sometimes overwhelmed by life’s problems. This study is led by Phil Euler and Carol Rustad.
