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 their 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.
WEDNESDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY
This hour-long weekly Bible Study is held on Wednesday mornings at 9:45 a.m. in South Hall with pastoral staff 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!
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!
WOMEN OF THE ELCA (WELCA)
This organization includes Lutheran women who gather in over 7,000 locations in the U.S. and the Caribbean for service, study, advocacy, fellowship, and more!

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!).

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.
