Ways to Give
Christian living unavoidably means the giving of self in the service of God and others. That "self" includes time, skill and what we possess (time, talent and treasure). The Christian therefore asks, how can I use what I have in the service of God.
Here are some areas of current and future service at Sharon. When we would have come through this COVID-19 Pandemic we would rejoice to have you play a part in the life and ministry of Sharon.
