Join us in person for worship.
Saturday at 5:30pm
Take some time to center on God’s promises after your day of Saturday activities at this contemporary style worship service. Worshipers are led by piano and song leaders using a contemporary music style. This relaxed and intimate setting of worship offers relevant preaching that addresses the question of what it means to live a life as a Christian today. Each week, this service offers the Lord’s Supper, time for quiet prayer and the opportunity to be the community of God’s people. This service is a great alternative to Sunday morning worship. All people of all ages and all faith traditions are welcome!
Sunday at 8:30, 9:45 and 11am
The pinnacle of Sheridan’s ministry is worshiping our loving God on Sunday morning. We invite you to join in and experience the love of Jesus in a very real and authentic way at Sheridan. People often comment on Sheridan’s warm and inviting atmosphere, beautiful music, meaningful dramas and sermons that connect with everyday lives. These worship services are contemporary in music style and are led by excellent singers, piano, guitar players and drums. The Lord’s Supper is served twice a month. All people of all ages and all faith traditions are welcome!
Want to join us online instead? Join us for worship online live: Sundays at 9:45am.
Current Worship Series: Reach
When are you at your best? When do you feel the best about yourself? In all likelihood, it is when you have done something good for someone in need. This is especially true when we care for someone, in a meaningful way, who is beyond our inner circle.
The same holds true for the church. When are we at our collective best? When do we feel the best about ourselves? When we reach into the larger community. This is why social outreach is so important. When we reach out to help others, the church reflects what Jesus desired. Focusing outward is important for our individual and collective emotional wellbeing.
Sometimes we forget this in life. We make it all about ourselves. This is true both in our own families, but also in our church family. We get busy and we fall into the fallacy that we are short on resources of time, talent and treasure.
We turn inwards as a coping strategy. Sadly, while this usually helps us get through a day or season, it slowly erodes our esteem, because we fail to be at our best, and then we fail to feel good about ourselves.
As counter-intuitive as it seems, reaching beyond ourselves is the key to happiness.
Of course, this takes strength and determination. We have to be disciplined to make a difference in the world. Much like any goal, when we reach and stretch ourselves, doing more than what we thought possible, this becomes the moment of greatness. If our obsession with sports and recreation has taught us anything, disciplined sacrifice for a greater goal brings its rewards on a variety of levels.
In the coming weeks of worship we will talk about reaching beyond ourselves. We will examine what it takes to stretch towards a goal.
The Bible is clear, we should never live solely for ourselves. We will specifically work our way through the book of Philippians, which documents the Apostle Paul’s reasons for and work of reaching out in the midst of hardship.
Even more, we will look at the outreach ministries of Sheridan. More than what we do, we will examine why we reach beyond ourselves. The greater church has always held in tension “what we want for ourselves,” and “how we are to exist for others.”
As we prepare to grow our campus with our new Outreach Center, we will explore in worship that reaching out is exactly what we should be doing, as a community and in our own lives. Come worship and learn how to be at your best, by being your best for others.
September 9/10: Servant Heart – Philippians 1:3-11
Paul longs for the people of Philippi to understand why he gives so much of himself to others. We see Paul’s understanding of having a servant’s heart as his metric of success.
September 16/17: Humility – Philippians 2:1-11
Called “The Christ Poem” these words demonstrate that being servant-hearted is more than just his metric, but it is the way of Jesus.
September 23/24: Potential – Philippians 3:1-11
As a latecomer to the group of apostles, Paul is giving his credentials, while also showing that we reach our potential when we live solely by faith.
September 30/October 1: Community – Philippians 3:12-4:1
Today we hear of a concept that is very different than the message we hear in today’s world. The joy and success of community is always more important than anything we accomplish personally.
October 7/8: Legacy of Joy – Philippians 4:4-9
Paul loves to rejoice. Properly understood, rejoicing is properly delighting in God’s unending grace. In practical terms, we receive joy upon joy. This joy – over and over – creates a legacy to be shared.
October 14/15 Satisfaction – Philippians 4:10-20
Paul ends his letter telling about his satisfaction for the life he is living and has lived. Quite strong words for a man writing from prison. Despite his circumstances, Paul is convinced he can do all things.
