Adult Ministries

A disciple is a student and follower of Christ. 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.

20's & 30's Community

This is an opportunity to meet other people in a similar place in life, and to learn and grow in faith. The 20’s/30’s community is a collaboration of area ELCA churches and is made up of both people who feel completely at home at church, and people for whom church has not been there thing. Events include God Talk on Tap, Bible studies, retreats, and more! Join the Sharon Lutheran Young Adults Community FB Group to stay up to date on upcoming events.

LIFT - Learning In Faith Together

This Adult Education opportunity takes place each week on Sunday mornings 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.

Each Wednesday morning at 9:45, there is an hour long Bible Study on the Scripture text for that coming Sunday's worship service.  Anyone is welcome to attend.

The Bible Study goes on all year long with some breaks now and then.  People are welcome to participate on whichever Wednesdays that work for them.  An online option will also continue, so people can join in person or online.  The online link is emailed out on Mondays.  If you don't already receive that link and would like to, please let Deacon Jamie know.  His email is jtravers@sharonlutheran.org.

 

Small Group Bible Studies

There are several small groups who learn and study together on different topics. These groups are hosted at locations outside of the church building. Contact the office to get connected with a small 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. 
Check the monthly calendar or the monthly newsletter to find out the date, time, and subject of this month's gathering!

Free Lunch Friday
@ Christus Rex

This is an opportunity for college students to enjoy some casual conversation and wind down from the week with a FREE lunch! This is a partnership with area churches and individual sponsors to offer a free lunch every Friday during the academic year.

Meals Ministry

Meal Ministry volunteers bring meals to individuals who have recently had a new child, or are going through an illness, or who have recently lost a family member.  If you would like to bring a meal to an individual or family in need, contact the office to sign up or submit your MyMinistry form today.

Funerals Ministry

Sharing a meal after a funeral is an important time for families and friends to gather and remember their loved ones together. The meal is prepared and served by volunteers. Volunteers also prepare bars and other desserts to be served. To join this ministry team, contact the church office (make a link to contact us) or submit a MyMinistry form with the Funerals Ministry selected.

Faith Formation Ministries recognizes that the seed of faith starts at birth and it is our covenant to grow and nurture that faith
by building relationships with our young people, by supporting young people's relationships with God, by living one’s faith through
mission and service, and by experiencing faith as a vibrant and compassionate way to live life connected to God and others.
