Serve On Campus

 “So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.”  Galatians 6:10

A church is only as much as its members.  The programs you enjoy for fellowship, education, and worship are here because someone values them enough to put it together.  That someone might just be you.

Opportunities

There are so many ways to offer your time, talent, and tithe.  Whether you want to make new friends, contribute your unique skills, or just know you have filled a need... whether you have an hour to make a meatloaf, or 5 minutes to make a phone call... whether you can participate on the weekend, evenings, or during the day... there is a perfect spot for you.

See some of the things below going on that you could join.  But not everything fits on the page.  So if you don't find just the right thing, call the church office and we will help you make the right connection.

If you have questions, please contact the office at office@sharonpcusa.org or call (704) 553-0869.

Lemonade on the Lawn
Summer Sundays, the fountain outside the Sanctuary
11:30am,  after 2nd service

Summertime Sunday morning fellowship.   Set up and serve treats after the Traditional Service Sunday mornings.  A great opportunity to meet lots of folks, while everyone enjoys social and sunshine.  Maria Harvey, committee xxxxxxxx

Christian Education
There are Sunday school classes for all ages and interests, many taught using guiding resources by volunteers.  As a matter of fact, it takes over 60 volunteers to support the Christian Education programs of this church.  It doesn't take depth of knowledge, just a curious heart.  Ask any Sunday School teacher how you can take a leadership position.  Contact the church office for more information or to participate at office@sharonpcusa.org.
