heridan’s goal for adult education is spiritual formation leading to transformation to Christlikeness. As adults, we grow in our understanding of God’s unconditional grace and love as we acquire knowledge, wisdom, attitudes, beliefs, skills, and abilities to think, feel, and act in ways that reflect our desire to follow Christ. As much as Jesus loved children, he called adults to be his disciples and to be transformed. Adults are called to be agents of change in our world. The Bible has many stories of Jesus teaching adults and blessing the children. It is through adult education, that followers of Christ understand their fears and work through tough issues with a mature biblical perspective.
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.

The Power of Giving Thanks
Wed., Nov. 7-Dec. 19; 6:30-7:30pm
Surveys report that 4 out of 5 Americans feel gratitude. At the same time, our society permeates a deep sense of discontent. Is there a gap between our desire to be grateful and our ability to behave gratefully? In the season of Thanksgiving and Advent, this class will examine the power of giving thanks and the Bible’s teaching how to practice gratitude as individuals and as a community. Invite someone to come and grow in gratitude together. The class will not meet Nov. 21.
