The church supports missions in order to meet the needs of people locally, nationally, and internationally and to fulfill Jesus’ commandment to go into all the world to preach the gospel.
The church supports global mission by pooling the church’s money with the money of other churches to further the work of Christ’s church throughout the world. The Sharon Center UMC Mission and Outreach Committee has provided many opportunities for the congregation to reach out in love and faith to the local and global communities.
