Sheridan’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

Spend some quiet time reflecting on a Scripture passage. Knowing that not everyone prays at the same pace, you have control over the pace of the retreat.

Women’s Faith Formation & Events
Women’s Bible Study on Job
Tuesdays at 7pm OR Thursdays at 9:30am via Zoom; begins Sept. 15 OR Sept. 17
Join Kathy Paisley on Zoom for a look at the book of Job. Joy is the constant companion of the woman who trusts in the Lord. And while you can find it in friends, family, and circumstances, unfailing, persistent joy will only ever overflow from your relationship with Jesus.
Just ask Job, the man from Uz who clung to God’s goodness while all his worldly joys were stripped away. But how is it possible to hold onto such joy in times of sorrow?
In this 7-session study, discover the redemptive facet of Job’s suffering. Learn to view pain as a way to strengthen your faith, trusting in God’s character and realizing God welcomes your difficult questions. Because His providence will never take you to a place where His grace will not sustain you.
Cheryl Stubbendieck will be leading an inductive study focusing on asking who, what, when, where, why and how about the book we’re studying to arrive at conclusions about what God is saying to us.
SOLOS: currently suspended
A ministry for single older ladies of Sheridan, over the age of 50, who are looking for others on the same path in our church community to come alongside and socialize with. We hope to plan monthly opportunities to get together and in time build friendships for spur of the moment activities as well.

An occasional time for fellowship and conversation with other moms. These events are a time for mothers to join in fellowship and share in the journey of motherhood. If you are raising children this opportunity is for you. Bring your children for Wednesdays @ the Well activities and be a part of this time for ideas and encouragement.
Sheridan Women’s Circles are an opportunity to be involved in a small group for fellowship, Bible study and to be involved in stewardship and service activities.
