In consideration of public health concerns related to the Corona Virus (COVID-19), Sheridan Hills Baptist Church will suspend public worship gatherings in favor of worshipping online until the pandemic has subsided.
Sheridan Hills Updates & information
Reminder, there are NO on campus meetings through the month of March.
This includes Sunday Worship gatherings, Sunday Growth Group meetings, Wednesday activities and all other on campus events. We are encouraging contact-free social interactions (smiles and waves only). To stay connected, subscribe to the SHBC Youtube Channel, download the Sheridan Hills App, refer to the sheridanhills.org website, and look for special text and emails from Pastor Andrew and the church staff.
Please remember your financial giving even though we are not meeting as much. For those of you who have the ability to give more than usual right now, that would be a great help to keeping the church strong. Obviously this is going to be a difficult time for many people. Marcie and I are going to trust the Lord and give more than we already do – the Lord will honor this faith (Malachi 3:10). CLICK HERE TO GIVE ELECTRONICALLY
Call the office (954) 961-4250 or send a message to INFO@sheridanhills.org if you need prayer or assistance.
The church office hours are Tuesday - Friday from 9:00am - 5:00pm. If you are sick, please let our pastors know. We want to be able to pray for you.
Most importantly, we encourage you as Christ-followers to let the glory, hope and joy of Christ shine through us into the fear and darkness around us. This is a prime opportunity to talk to people about our sure hope in Christ and His promise of eternal life for all who have come to trust in Him.
Read and meditate on Paul's letter to the PHILIPPIANS -- it is perfect encouragement for these circumstances. And remember, watching lots of TV will stoke your fear and rot your brain. Don't do it!
