xpect your life to change through the grace and love of God-Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Changing from ways of human brokenness, what the church calls sin, to the way of life in Jesus is the essence of Sheridan Lutheran Church. As our mission statement proclaims, “we love deeply, grow spiritually and share abundantly.” As a congregation, we are committed to these life-giving ways and when we do them, our lives change. We hope the result is that we’ve created a hospitable community that welcomes all people and where all people feel welcome. Our outreach opportunities abound. Our educational and faith formational opportunities reach the tiniest of children to those in their wisdom years.
Our God is not a stagnant, irrelevant God – but God is alive in and through this community. God is never done with you. God never gives up on you. Sheridan is a place where we partner with God in living this out.
Perhaps it's been a while since you visited a church, you are new to the area or simply want to check out Sheridan. Welcome, we encourage you to join us.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
Sheridan Lutheran Church is located on the corner of 70th & Old Cheney in Lincoln, NE. Ample parking is available surrounding the building. Handicap parking, and parking reserved for elderly, is available on the east side of the building.
WHAT ARE YOUR WORSHIP SERVICES LIKE?
Weekends are set aside to worship God, give ourselves as an offering to God, and to open ourselves to the promises of God. Our worship services run about an hour in length. They contain excellent contemporary music, relevant preaching with a Biblical basis, time for prayer, sharing in the Lord’s Supper, celebrating baptism, and challenging ourselves to be the church beyond 70th and Old Cheney. We typically utilize a worship series theme that focuses on an aspect of living life as God’s people. People often comment on how helpful these themes are in equipping them to be a follower of Jesus in the ‘real world’ beyond the walls of the church. We also have educational and faith formation classes for all ages during Sunday mornings. These vibrant classes are a great place to build a foundation of learning about faith and taking faith to a personal, deeper level.
Please visit our Weekly Services page to learn more information about the different worshiping opportunities at Sheridan.
During the year, there are special times in the church where we celebrate the awesome gifts of God. At these times, we gather for special worship opportunities. Some of these special services are Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Sunrise and Confirmation. Each of these times highlight key moments in the life of Jesus and the impact these moments have on our faith community. These historical events come alive in a contemporary way as the greatest story ever told is retold again. These services are listed in the bulletin and on our website and give specific times and dates. As with all worship at Sheridan – all are welcome!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR AT SHERIDAN?
We want you to feel comfortable. After all, we are thrilled that you're joining us and hope you are more focused on the worship than what you are wearing. In the summertime, it's not uncommon to see people wearing sandals, shorts, and a shirt. Some prefer to still put on their "Sunday best," and that's fine too! Simply, come as you are.
WHERE DO I TAKE MY KIDS?
Children are welcome in all of our worship services! There are Storybags available for children to use during services. These bags contain a storybook, crayons, a children’s worship bulletin and a quiet snack. But if wiggles and restlessness get the best of you and your little one, a Quiet Room is located right outside the Worship Center. There are windows to view the sanctuary and audio to hear the worship service while comforting your child. We also have a Nursery available during Sunday worship at 9:45 and 11am. From September through May, we offer children's education classes during the 9:45am and 11:00am worship services. Learn more about our children's education opportunities.

WHAT IS CHURCH MEMBERSHIP AND HOW DO I JOIN?
Membership simply means you would like to be an official Sheridan partner in ministry. To join, we invite you to participate in one of our New Member Workshops, held one Saturday of each month. The process of membership involves participating in an informal workshop format to learn more about being a Lutheran-Christian and Sheridan's ministries and a conversation with Kathy Paisley, Sheridan's Director of Ministries. Those wishing to join will be welcomed as Sheridan members at worship that same weekend.
