All are welcome to worship at Sharon Lutheran Church.  Worship gathers us as one body, invites us to hear God's Word, leads us to experience God's grace in baptism and communion, and then sends us out to engage and serve the world.

Explaining Coronavirus To Kids, And The Science Of Soap:

As COVID-19 spreads across the globe, the World Health Organization has declared the novel coronavirus a pandemic. "But Why: A Podcast For Curious Kids" answers questions about the virus with infectious disease doctor Krutika Kuppalli, who studies global pandemics. Chemistry professor Palli Thordarson from the University of New South Wales explains the science of why washing your hands with plain old soap and water is so effective against germs. Dr. Krutika Kuppali says it’s understandable that kids are worried about the spread of the coronavirus; it’s new and the changes that are going on in the community are disruptive. But she recommends four things kids can do TODAY to feel better.

We encourage families to start (or continue) using the FAITH5 model in the home ~ every day!

Faith5 is a powerful framework that deeply connects people to God and one other, connects church to home, and connects faith to daily life. When practiced every day over time, FAITH5 carries the power to enrich communication, deepen understanding, and promote mental, physical, and spiritual health. Here are the five steps...

SHARE your highs and lows, and give thanks that God is present in all of life's ups and downs
READ a Bible verse or story of your choosing, or visit elca.org/Faith/DailyBible for today's reading
TALK about how the verse(s) might relate to your highs and lows
PRAY for one another's highs and lows, again thanking God for God's presence
BLESS one another ("Jesus loves you", "You are a precious and holy child of God", etc.)
