S
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

  • Inspirational Websites & Blogs to Read

    • InCourage: An inspirational Christian website for women, by women; one of which is Ann Voskamp. This site is beautiful visually and most of the writers seem to be published authors. They have a conference, book club, community groups and are associated with Dayspring publishers.
  • Devotionals & Guided Retreats

    • The 3-MINUTE RETREAT is available by computer, email, or smart phone. sponsored by the Loyola Press, a Jesuit ministry. 3-Minute Retreats invite you to take a short prayer break right at your computer. 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. After each screen, a Continue button will appear. Click it when you are ready to move on. If you are new to online prayer, the basic timing of the screens will guide you through the experience.
    • You can find all of the devotions from our Sheridan devotion writing team on this page. See the bottom of the page for devotions written for the monthly Women's newsletter.
