A Call to Move

Dear Brothers and Sisters of Sharon,

As you are aware, my licensing as local pastor in The United Methodist Church unites me with other United Methodist pastors in a covenant community whose calling first and foremost is to serve God and Christ in the world. The covenant also calls us to serve Christ and the world where we are sent. United Methodist pastors are always prepared to itinerate as the Holy Spirit, working through our Bishop and Cabinet of our Annual Conference, directs that we should. [Read more…]

Red Cross Blood Drive

There will be a Red Cross Blood Drive at the church on Thursday, April 9, from 1:00 -6:00 p.m.  Walk-ins are accepted, but appointments are appreciated.  Please call 429-2033 or 877-7499 to make an appointment.

All presenting donors will be entered into a drawing for a FREE gas card.  Homemade BBQ sandwiches and cookies will be available after donation.

Christ in the Passover

What do the Jewish Passover and Jesus’ last supper have in common? Lizzy Cohen, with Jews for Jesus, will answer that question as she presents “Christ in the Passover” on Tuesday, March 31, at 7:00 p.m. You’ll gain wonderful insights on how the pieces of God’s plan of salvation fit together, and you’ll remember this visual display of the Passover pageantry for years to come. Join us for “Christ in the Passover” from Egypt to Calvary to what it means for us today.  There will be no admission charge.
