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.

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.
