Give a Magnificent Gift
Magnificent Gifts

We often hear the phrase, “I love this time of year!” Why do we say this? Because we have traditions in this season that shape us as people of faith with family and friends. One of the traditions we have at Sheridan is Magnificent Gifts. This giving opportunity ensures that our ministry partners – in Lincoln and across the world – can continue in their amazing work of reaching out to all with the love of God in Christ Jesus.

The Magnificent Gifts devotional guide is a great resource to help guide you through this Advent season and focus on the gift of Jesus Christ.

Consider giving a financial Magnificent Gift

You may contribute electronically, using the “give online” button and designating by “Advent Giving,” or give with cash or check in the church office. Make checks payable to Sheridan Lutheran Church.

Why above and beyond giving?

As a faith community, celebrating Jesus’ birth is who we are. Jesus commanded the church to be the light in the world so that all people would know his promises (Matthew 28). We will proclaim the promise that God has come into the world. We will celebrate Jesus’ birthday!

Throughout the four weeks of Advent, we prepare our hearts and homes to celebrate God’s gift of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We celebrate this season of giving in our faith community and remember the needs of others.

This Year’s Magnificent Gifts

Each year we provide opportunities to give to special mission projects serving the needs of those at home and globally. And over the years, the Sheridan community has given generously to various ministry partnerships. This year, your generosity through Magnificent Gifts will benefit four organizations that serve individuals and families here in Lincoln and the surrounding communities. Consider giving a financial Magnificent Gift to support these ministries.

Magnificent Gifts Recipients

Barnabas Community

The Barnabas Community “seeks to live out Christ’s compassion and
love by sharing with all as a community.” Over the years the ministry of Barnabas Community has grown exponentially. What began as a small store-front now consists of a free store and community room, hot meals served twice a week, sack lunches served once a week, Bible Study, and worship.

Sheridan Hunger Ministries Fund

The Sheridan Hunger Ministries fun finances key ministries we take part in, like Community Night food packing events and Matt Talbot Kitchen. For two years, we have partnered with the Food Bank of Lincoln in a large-scale food packing event. In 2022, we were able to pack 1,300 bags of food and in 2023, we packed 1,629 bags. The bags are given to individuals and families in need. The food for these events is purchased by Sheridan through a partnership with HyVee and has cost approximately $17,000 per event.
