We are a vital, friendly, and loving Christian fellowship. We are from all walks of life, and we gather to worship and serve God in the spirit of Jesus Christ. With many ministries, we are deeply involved in the life of our surrounding community and Young Harris College. 

If you are looking for an active and vibrant fellowship, we invite you to join us each Sunday at 8:30 A.M. or 11:00 A.M. for worship as well as for Sunday School at 9:45 A.M. Share the warmth of a friendly welcome, hear the Word of God preached, sing hymns of faith, and feel refreshed and renewed by God’s presence throughout the service.

At Sharp Memorial United Methodist Church our Focus is to: Witness, Teach and Serve.

 

The Christian calendar is the Church’s way of keeping time. It is the seasons and days we use to mark events in the life of Jesus Christ and the Church. In the Christian calendar, the new year begins with the season of Advent, when we celebrate the coming of Jesus Christ into the world and also His promised final coming. Next is the Christmas season, which begins on Christmas Eve and is 12 days long (“The Twelve Days of Christmas’). Here we rejoice with angels at the birth of God in the flesh, Jesus our Lord.

Here is the schedule for our church-wide celebrations and services during this Holy Season:
Dec. 2 (Sunday) Hanging of the Greens service, 4:00 PM, in the Sanctuary
Dec. 3 (Monday) UM Men’s Christmas Dinner with the Sharp Tones, 6:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall.
Dec.16 (Sunday) Our regular Sunday morning worship schedule, with services at 8:30 and 11:00 AM as well as Sunday School at 9:45.
