**Due to Covid-19, all in-person classes have been suspended until further notice. All current Faith Formation classes are meeting through Zoom.
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.

Racial Identity Class
Wednesdays; 6:30pm; Zoom; begins Sept. 9
Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum wrote her classic book nearly 23 years ago. It has re-emerged as a best-seller in these days, as so many strive to learn how to personally be part of the solution to racism in America. A professor at Mount Holyoke College at the time, Dr. Tatum found that many of her students had a passion to learn about racial identity. Her response was the book, Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria: And Other Conversations About Race.
The study of this challenging book will be co-facilitated by Dr. Toni Jensen, Associate Professor of Sociology at Nebraska Wesleyan University and Pastor Greg Bouvier this fall, as part of our faith formation activities at Sheridan. Click here to register. Books are available for $11.40 + tax at the church office.
This Fall Pastor Eric will be leading a video based Bible study on Luke and Acts.
