Welcome to Sharon United Methodist Church! We're glad to have you as our guest. We genuinely want you to feel right at home, and that Sharon can become the place for you to enter into a new relationship with Christ, or to grow your existing faith. We look forward to getting to know you!
We invite you to worship with us at either of our two services. Whatever your style, be our guest and find a spiritual connection to enrich your life.
9:00 AM Traditional Service
A classic worship experience featuring music by our choir and pipe organ
11:15 AM Contemporary Service

How do I find my way around?
First, check out the directions link under "Contact Us" for a map to our location. Then, enter our parking lot from Morrison Blvd. Our friendly Hosts will greet you at the white hospitality tent at the front of the parking lot and will be happy to show you around.
What should I wear?
We really hope you will be comfortable at Sharon in whatever you choose to wear. In general, our traditional service has a more formal style and our contemporary service is more informal. Most of all, we just want you to be you! Our goal is for you to experience God, so whatever you need to wear to make a spiritual connection possible, that's fine by us.
What about my kids?
Infants through three-year-olds are welcome in our nursery, or you may bring them with you while you worship. Four-year-olds through second graders begin the worship service with you, then are invited to a special worship time in Godly Play. Older children are invited to worship with their families for the whole service.
