heridan's adult education ministries are intentional in class offerings to engage each another in learning and understanding of Biblical truths and develop a language of faith that helps us to shape and equip new generations. Sheridan believes that through Christian education, we acquire knowledge, wisdom, attitudes, beliefs, skills and abilities to think, feel, and act in ways that reflect our desire to follow 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.

Sunday Bible Studies

Sundays, Sept. 11, 2016-May 21, 2017; 8:30 & 9:45am; Conference Room

 Wednesday Morning Bible Study: Heaven

Begins Jan. 11, 2017; gather at 9:15am; begin study at 9:30am; Room 111

Heaven is hard for us to picture. We think of floating on clouds, singing praises and playing harps, or walking on streets of gold. While we know we want to go to heaven, we are a little nervous about what it will be like. These Bible studies provide a Biblical perspective on heaven- something richer and more exciting that we can imagine.

Ongoing Classes

Winter Learning Academy

Wed., Feb. 8, 15 & 22; 6:30pm

The best environment for a young person to grow in faith is when they are in an inter-generational faith community. Our modern world unfortunately groups young people to mostly spend time with their peers. But this robs young people of receiving wisdom from those more mature and giving guidance to even young children. Family is the best inter-generational community to grow faith, and a close second is the church. Sheridan’s Learning Academy is able to provide this rich environment for all ages to grow. When our young people sit side-by-side with a caring adult from our congregation, when they study, question, listen and discuss together, each person feels recognized and valued. Faith grows when everyone, young and old, feels like they are valuable to the church. Come be a part of the Winter Learning Academy and experience this for yourself.
