Sheridan’s Youth Ministry seeks to serve all students in grades 9-12 and their families. This ministry offers opportunities such as weekly youth group, Bible studies, mission trips, service projects, worship and more!
Who are we?
We are a ministry that believes in building relationships with youth and their families. We partner with parent and adult volunteers to provide safe, fun and faith-filled programs and events.
Our main goal of the ministry is to provide an outlet for students to feel safe in exploring their faith in Jesus Christ. Our hope is for all youth to know that they are cared for and loved by Jesus. We want them to experience Jesus in a way that will allow their faith to grow throughout their life. We focus on relationships and encourage continued relationship building throughout the week in the student’s daily life and believe that being part of a faith community is crucial to faith development.
Weekly Youth Group
Wednesday Night Schedule (Sept.-April): Wednesdays @ the Well Worship in person or online from 6-6:30pm Youth Group meets in person in the Great Room from 6:30-7:30pm
Sunday Schedule: Youth Group meets in person in Room 646 at 11am (through May 16). Faith formation and small group conversation centered on relevant topics, current events, and scripture.

Fellowship and Service Events
We gather regularly for fellowship activities including lock-ins, weekend retreats at Camp Carol Joy Holling, pool parties, the annual Progressive Dinner and more! Sheridan’s High School Youth also take part in annual church events including FaithFest, Trunk or Treat, Advent Event and much more! We also engage service projects throughout the year including the annual Soup-tacular, Easter Breakfast and others.
Youth Mission Trips
Each summer, our students along with caring adult leaders, embark on a week-long experience which includes service-learning, cultural immersion, worship, Bible study and fellowship. Recently, we’ve traveled to Kansas City, Nashville, Houston and San Fransisco. This immersive experience is available for youth currently in grades 8-12.
