Sheridan Lutheran Church has a mission to care for all people, including senior adults; to help them maintain the highest possible level of the abundant life Jesus came to offer (John 10:10). Sheridan strives to nurture and provide our seniors with a variety of worship opportunities and intergenerational activities. In return, we are blessed to have our seniors provide wisdom, prayer support, historical perspective and a sense of continuity. As the church changes our seniors are constant reminders that we will age and adapt as our world changes. "They are like trees…which yield their fruit in their season who do not wither. In all they do they prosper” (Psalm 1:3).

The bus is driven by CDL-licensed and trained volunteers. It seats 18 passengers. It is equipped with seat belts.

Fellowship- Opportunities are afforded to worship at special services throughout the year, and do the Lord's work while having fun and fellowship.
Resource Center/Advocacy- Information on senior resources, programs, and materials are maintained at Sheridan. We work with our seniors to assure they are safe, cared for spiritually, and supported during periods of illness and transition. Seniors are a main focus of our Health and Wellness Ministry.
Home Safety, CHERISH (Churches Helping Elderly Reside In Safe Homes)- Sheridan has a group of trained home safety inspectors and a team of home improvement experts who will install minor home safety features such as bathroom grab bars or the building of wheelchair ramps.
Collection of Home Health Aids- Donations by members and purchases with grant money have allowed us to maintain a stockpile of home health aides such as crutches, walkers, and wheelchairs for those in need.
If you have questions about any of the Senior Ministries, please contact Cheri Peterson.
