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. Masks are optional in worship and other gatherings on the Sharon campus including the Sharon Presbyterian Weekday School. We recognize that this deadly Covid19 pandemic is not over and we remain committed to loving our neighbor through respecting personal spaces and maintaining high standards for cleaning. Thank you for doing your part in keeping our community as safe and healthy as possible.

Beginning July 3rd, we will offer one Sunday morning worship service at 10:30 am in the sanctuary for the months of July and August. Starting July 3rd, we will pause our Morning Song service until it resumes again on September 11th. This change accommodates for summer worship attendance and our valuable volunteer time and talent. We look forward to being grounded in faith through worship together as God continues to move in and among the saints of Sharon Church!   

The Children's Nursery at Sharon Presbyterian Church is closed for the summer. It will open on June 19th only, which is Vacation Bible School Sunday. Children are always welcome in our worship services. During the 10:30am service, we have a cozy room just off the narthex (The Rose Room) for little ones and their parents. The Rose Room is equipped with several chairs, a pack ‘n play, and the ability to hear the worship service through our speaker system. Ask an usher for assistance anytime. As we continue to reevaluate our nursery needs, we look forward to seeing you and your children when the nursery reopens in September!

INVITE

Lemonade (and cookies!) on the Lawn - Summer Sundays June 5th - August 28th, right after 10:30am worship service, patio area outside of the Sanctuary
Meet a new friend, share a cup of lemonade, share a smile. With a busy summer, it’s great to slow down after the worship service and catch up with your church family.

Traditional Sunday Worship Service - Sundays, 10:30am, In-person and Livestreamed
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.

Children's Worship - During the summer, in lieu of our regular children's worship program during the 10:30am service, we invite you to enjoy a children's worship bag provided on the children's worship table in the narthex (entrance area). Please return the bags to the table after the service. We look forward to seeing you again for our regular children's worship program in September. For information, contact Natalie Jendron.  

Sharon Presbyterian Women have several Circles that are currently meeting. Circles are small groups of women who meet monthly for Bible Study and fellowship, and events open to all women of the church. If you are not already involved in a Circle, or may want to change the Circle you have attended previously, please contact Merrill Tibbals.

TEACH

As our Children and Youth Sunday School Programs are taking a break for the summer, we wish to thank our Teaching Committee and Children & Youth Sunday School leaders for their faithfulness and dedication to nurturing the lives of our young people. We look forward to seeing everyone again in the fall!

SERVE

Volunteer Opportunity! Lemonade on the Lawn happens most weeks during the summer months right after our 10:30am worship service. Hosting a Lemonade on the Lawn is simple, easy, and fun. It involves setting up a couple of tables on the patio near the steeple, plating some cookies of your choice, mixing up some lemonade, and pouring some water. Elder Burgin Hardin of our Caring Committee is eager to help you through the painless process. You can sign up to host a Lemonade on the Lawn as a family, or you can gather a few friends and sign up together. Limited hosting slots are available. Click here to sign up. For more information, contact Burgin Hardin
