Greetings! I don’t know why you have come to the webpage of First Presbyterian Church of Sheridan, but I am glad you did. FPC is a wonderful body of people, stretched across multiple generations and a wide variety of backgrounds, who love Jesus Christ and are committed to sharing and showing his love. Being a newcomer to First Presbyterian, I can tell you that I have experienced that love in many ways. I am the Interim Pastor here, and my name is Paul Hayden.
Every organization has foundational beliefs upon which it is built. Those beliefs should be easily accessed by those who want to know. Here are the foundational beliefs of First Presbyterian Church and the denomination of which we are a member.
Every group of believers has a style through which they give thanks to God. The worship style at First Presbyterian is a blended service. We incorporate some contemporary music and some traditional/classical music.
At First Presbyterian we believe in studying God’s Word for understanding and application. We believe studying should be an exercise in dialogue not monologue. We believe each person should ask honest questions with no hesitation. We invite all people, from the youngest to the oldest, to participate in these spiritual growth opportunities as outlined on the Education Page.
One of the easiest ways to understand the essence of fellowship is through this definition: We are ‘fellows in the same ship.’ Whatever it is that ‘floats your boat’ puts you in fellowship with others who float similar boats as do you.
MINISTRIES in the church
The work we do within the family of First Presbyterian we call ministry. The goal is to help grow and deepen the faith of those who are members, friends, and involved in this congregation.
MISSIONS in the community
At First Presbyterian, we talk about “Mission” as everything we do beyond the walls of the church. FPC is very involved in sharing the love of God with others.
