Tools to help us better understand the heart and mind of Jesus Christ
Adult Learning

Bible Studies as well as topical studies are offered throughout the year at various times.  Circle Bible Studies for women meet monthly in homes or at the church.  An introductory class to the Lutheran Church is offered several times each year.  This class serves as a new member class for those interested in joining the Lutheran Church when there is no previous Lutheran affiliation.

We're never too old to learn. As Christians, learning is a lifelong journey that begins with church school, continues through confirmation and goes on through adulthood and until the end of life. LIFT - Learning In Faith Together - is a Sunday Morning Adult Education opportunity that takes place each week at 10:23am in the sanctuary. Each week will focus on a different topic. Come and be a part of learning and growing in faith. Read More
Wednesday Morning Bible Study

This hour-long weekly Bible Study is held on Wednesday mornings at 9:45am in South Hall with a pastor as the facilitator. The topic is usually the next week’s lectionary readings. It is an opportunity to become familiar with these texts before they are read in worship and engage in discussion of the themes and ideas present. The coffee pot is always on and quite often snacks make their way into the room as well. We’ll see you there!

Sharon Lutheran Book Group

Golden Age Club

The Golden Age Club is a program of Sharon intended to provide fellowship, food, fun, as well as a dose of inspiration and learning for those who have reached the golden years of life - we'll label that as 65 years or more (although IDs are never checked!). The gathering of this group normally takes place the second Friday afternoon of the month from September through June.
