Missions are very important to us at Sharon Church. We encourage all of our families to be part of a mission in some capacity. Being involved in a mission doesn’t necessarily mean that you must go to another part of the world. At Sharon we are active in both local and international missions. Check out a few of our missions that you can be part of.

MISSIONS

Here at Sharon, we take seriously our mission to make disciples and to positively impact this world for Jesus Christ. Below are the five mission opportunities that we are asking you to prayerfully consider joining.


Within the Four Walls

We view opportunities within the four walls of church as a type of mission as well. We have ways that you can impact a life for all eternity and never have to leave the building. Consider serving in our nursery, children or youth ministries, be a greeter at a door, sing or play an instrument in our praise band. We can help find you a place that best fits you. Contact Jeff Ayers, and he will assist you in finding that perfect spot.

Feeding in His Name

Our women’s ministry is active in our community by serving those who are in need. On a monthly basis our team goes out into our local area and shows the love of Jesus by feeding those who are hungry and provide clothing for those in need. How can you be a part of this mission? We have several options for you!

  • Help prepare meals
  • Donate gently used children and teen clothing - can be dropped off at the church offices
  • Help serve meals
  • Donate financially

To get connected, contact Tina Sanders.

A team from Sharon serves at Calvary Refuge Center every fourth Saturday of the month. Calvary Refuge Center provides emergency and transitional housing and food for homeless individuals and families. Here is how you can help:

  • Help prepare meals
  • Help serve meals
  • Donate blankets, gloves, toiletries
  • Donate financially

To get connected, contact Ronnie Thompson.

International

Sharon is active in international missions as well. We presently have two families from Sharon serving in Uganda, Africa.

Uganda, Africa (Lulwanda Children's Home)

The Palmer family (John, Bobbi and Jackson and Lilly) have lived in Mbale, Uganda and served at Lulwanda Children’s Home since February 2014. They are excited about serving God and the orphans in Uganda. The Palmers serve through Grace International Children’s Foundation and are doing fantastic things in the name of Jesus. If you would like to learn more about Grace International and help the Palmer family in a financial way, visit GICF by clicking here.

In August 2016, Ryan and Megan Kelley and their four children (Audrey, Simon, Lucy and Norah) moved to Uganda to join the Palmers in the Lulwanda Children's Home. For many years, God had been moving in Ryan and Megan Kelley's hearts to serve Him overseas as missionaries. They had been viewing this as a “later in life” calling, but just over a year ago they felt the Holy Spirit saying that the time to act had come.

Guatemala

Each year a group of students and adults from Sharon travel to Guatemala to express Christ's love to orphans and widows. Our desire is for those who attend to understand that we can minister to those outside our country and to return with the desire to do so in our community. We help start micro businesses in order to provide an income flow for families. We provide water purification equipment to those in need, and when resources are available we enjoy doing home construction as well. For more information on Guatemala missions, contact Greg McGaha.


Romania

Carolyn Hines is currently involved in mission work in Romania. Her heart goes out to the many children of the Romas (gypsies). Seeing children in dumpsters digging for food is heart wrenching. Knowing so many never hear that God loves them is even tougher. To help Carolyn in reaching children for Jesus in Romania, consider helping her financially by giving through our Sunday morning offering time. For more information on Romania missions, contact Carolyn Hines.
