Sheridan encourages spiritual formation in adults leading to transformation, growing in understanding of God’s unconditional grace and love. As much as Jesus loved children, he called adults to be his disciples, to be transformed and be agents of change in our world. The Bible has many stories of Jesus teaching adults and blessing the children.
Adult faith formation takes on various forms and activities that include focused learning on Biblical topics, meaningful conversation, attentive listening, and practicing the disciplines of a Christian way of life. Sheridan’s ministry for adults, in all of the various seasons of life, strives to help us live God’s promises as the family of God and to equip all of us to be formed and transformed as disciples of Christ.
Adults may join classes at any time. Registration is indicated if needed to attend.
Any needed class resources may be purchased on your own or at our OneSent Market just off of the Great Hall.
Sunday Adult Bible Study
Resumes September 10
Sundays; 9:45am; Conference Room
Our group is starting a new study of Ecclesiastes, entitled Be Satisfied. Even if we have it all, sometimes it is never enough. We will study Solomon’s profound thoughts on the meaning of life and what really matters most in life. We will learn the keys to a satisfied life, no matter what life brings. No homework or previous Bible knowledge is necessary, just bring an inquisitive mind. Facilitated by Julie Johnson.

Theology Roundtable is a study designed for open discussion to grow and deepen faith. This study is open to everyone and participants can join at any time. The book currently being studied is Red Sea Rules by Robert Morgan, which offers ten strategies for dealing with hard times in order to move from fear to faith—a divine protocol for handling life. Just as Moses and the Israelites became trapped between Pharaoh’s rushing armies and the uncrossable Red Sea, so are we sometimes overwhelmed by life’s problems. This study is led by Phil Euler and Carol Rustad.
Wednesdays, Jan. 10-Feb. 7; 6:30pm; Room 413
