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.

The Gospel of John is the most deeply spiritual of the four gospels. The aim in writing the gospel is that readers will not only believe in Jesus Christ, but that they “may have life in his name.” You too, can experience a season of spiritual growth and life-changing renewal in this six-week DVD series, John: The Gospel of Light and Life. Follow the life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus through the Gospel of John and understand the context of some of the best-known verses in the New Testament. Invite a friend to explore and discover “life in his name.”
