OUR MINISTRIES AT SHARON PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

ANNOUNCEMENTS

The church office hours are Monday thru Friday 9:00am - 4:00pm. Church members and visitors are welcome to come by the office. We will be following CDC guidelines by increasing cleaning procedures, having hand sanitizer readily available and wearing face masks. We ask that all members and visitors to wear a face mask when visiting the church campus. 

They're here! Our New Pictorial Directories! It has been quite a journey getting to the finished product during a pandemic, but the new pictorial directories are hot off the press in the church office. If you had your picture made by a LifeTouch photographer, by Dawn Rogers, or paid to have your own picture submitted, you may pick up your copy of the directory (one per family unit) in the church office, Monday - Friday, from 9am to 4pm. Someone in the office will check off your name. If you need your directory delivered to you, we can arrange that too. A limited number of additional pictorial directories will be available for purchase in the near future. Printed non-pictorial directories are always available from the church office at no charge.

INVITE

Sunday Morning Online Worship Service - Livestreamed Sundays at 10:30am
Indoor Worship service will be livestreamed on our YouTube channel for those of you that consider yourself ‘at-risk’, feel ill, have been recently diagnosed with COVID-19, or not yet comfortable with worshiping inside. Like and subscribe.

Pentecost Fellowship Sunday10:30am, Sunday, May 23rd, OUTDOORS (No reservations needed)
Y’all “come on back” as we joyfully reconnect in worship, fellowship, food, and fun for all ages! 
WORSHIP: Bring your own chair as we celebrate Pentecost with a special, concise worship service at 10:30am on the lawn. A Pentecost worship service will be posted on YouTube at 10:30am for those who cannot join us in person. (In case of inclement weather, the outdoor service will not take place.) 
CHILDREN: During the service, children ages 4-7 are invited to an upbeat Bible lesson and music in the Price Outreach Center. Following the service, there will be “field day” activities for families with children of all ages! 
FELLOWSHIP: After the service, grilled favorites will be available to purchase from The Sausage Buddy food truck for lunch. Check out the menu here for options and prices. In addition, you’ll have an opportunity to participate in a water balloon toss, egg relay, three-legged race, parachute fun, cornhole tournament, among other things—you won’t want to miss it! YOUTH FUNDRAISER: Throughout the event, look for opportunities to give to our youth operating budget. Moving into a post-pandemic world, this money will help to defray the cost of upcoming trips and events for youth and leaders.
