WORSHIP SCHEDULE: SUNDAY @ 8:30, 9:45, 11:00am

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

Women’s Welcome Back Gathering – Come to the Beach!

Wed., Aug. 4; 6-8pm; Great Room
You are invited to gather with Sheridan women for supper followed by speaker, Sue McLain, of Yesterday’s Lady. Sue will be sharing her expertise about beachwear through the decades. Learn how the bathing suit is reflective of the era in more ways than style. The Women’s Ministry Team is excited to host this event. The supper will be catered by Chef au Chef and our speaker comes to us through a grant from Humanities Nebraska. Wear your beach attire if you desire. Bring your friends, sisters or daughters! Register by July 31.

Note: If you paid for the Women’s Brunch in March 2020 that was cancelled, you do not have to pay the $10 fee for supper. However, we ask that you still register to let us know you’re coming.

Women’s Retreat Rescheduled for 2022

The semi-annual Women’s Retreat originally scheduled for April 2021 has been rescheduled for April 1-2, 2022. Safety is our prime concern at this time and it is our hope that this will allow more time for the COVID situation to subside and comfort levels to rise. Watch for details in the coming months as they unfold.

Grace Groups

In our hectic modern-day world, Grace Groups can offer a pause that refreshes through scripture reading, prayer, meditation, and inspirational reading. Grace Groups are made up of four people that commit to meet at least twice a month for one year, to intentionally build relationships and discipleship. Grace Groups offer time and space to grow in grace, loving and sharing friendships in Christ. New Grace Groups can form at any time. Gather up a friend or two and join a group—we’ll help with study resources and get you started. If you are feeling called to take part in this small group ministry, contact Julie Hestermann.
