heridan’s Women’s Ministries Team is dedicated to nurturing each woman’s relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ through spiritual growth, service and fellowship. The goal is to encourage women to become involved in faith formation that allows women to understand their calling to know Jesus, love God and others, share your faith with family and friends and care for each other.
Sheridan’s women’s activities are designed to Encourage the hearts and minds of women to know, love and serve God.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another-and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Hebrews 10: 24-25
