Our Sunday and Wednesday Bible classes are dedicated to the teaching of God’s word. Classes are arranged according to common age groups from toddlers to adults. The curriculum is structured around textual studies of scripture and topical studies of interest and concern.
In addition, a new converts class is also available for those added to the body of Christ. Well-trained teachers who believe that the Bible is from God will challenge you, guide you, and hopefully inspire you. We are challenged to grow in spiritual understanding through weekly discussion-oriented, bible-based classes.
Our purpose is to equip adults through Bible study, prayer, and fellowship to grow spiritually and be transformed into Christ’s image. We seek to follow the teachings and patterns for the church given in the New Testament. Check out our church in Greensboro.
Our New Convert’s Ministry helps our new converts by introducing them to all the different ministries we have at Sharpe Road and we encourage them to get involved. Second, we introduce them to each other.
We try to make sure everyone feels comfortable in their new local church in Greensboro by building relationships with other members of the body at Sharpe Road. We try to plan different activities for everyone to get acquainted with each other and different bible studies focusing on areas that are important to new converts.
The purpose of the Youth Ministry is to organize Youth Group Activities for the Youth that promote Christians Fellowship and teach Christian principles. This is done through attending Youth Rally’s, organizing Youth Lock-In, and various other events that focus on teaching and serving our Youth. The Sharpe Road Youth Ministry is one of the most important and vital ministries of the congregation.
Truly the youth are our future and we encourage our youth to become active in the work of the Lord and stress the importance of following Christ at an early age. To promote spiritual growth and fellowship a variety of spirit-filled and fun activities are executed throughout the course of the year. Some of these activities are Youth Lock-Ins, Bible Bowls, Youth Conferences, and various Youth Rallies.
The Golden Agers Ministry is open to all members who are fifty-five years of age and older. Our major focus is providing an opportunity for our older members to actively participate in impacting the growth of our local church in Greensboro through outreach activities that span from educating our youth to invigorating our seniors.
The Breakfast Club involves reaching out to children who attend Sharpe Road Church of Christ and children from various parts of the city. The weekend before the Breakfast Club, we canvas a designated neighborhood and invite the children to attend our third Saturday Breakfast Club. We sign up the children, inform them of the time they will be picked up and returned, and meet briefly with their caregivers at which time we also invite them to participate and to attend our Sunday worship service.
At the Breakfast Club, which runs between 10 am and noon, we have age-appropriate classes and arts and crafts followed by a fellowship breakfast or meal. (Our menu changes monthly and is generated and agreed upon by the Golden Agers. All food prepared for the Breakfast Club is donated by the Golden Agers.) It has been our custom in recent years to collect from the church family school supplies during the month of August. We then package these supplies and distribute them to the children who attend the September Breakfast Club.
The Golden Agers Business Meeting is held monthly immediately following the Breakfast Club. During this meeting, each participant is encouraged to give five dollars to help with the activities the organization sponsors. (The “dues” total $40.00 a year.) These funds are needed because the Golden Agers are totally self-supporting and do not request a budget from the church treasury.
A Benevolence Day, usually in April, is spearheaded by the Golden Agers. We solicit gently used household items, clothes, shoes, etc. from our membership. These items are set up and displayed on a designated Saturday and we invited the public to the giveaway. During this giveaway, we usually have great participation and our leadership is on hand to greet the public and invite them to worship with us. This is a church-wide project that the Golden Agers organize.
As Golden Agers, we enjoy fellowshipping with one another. Throughout the year we try to plan short trips, cookouts and get-togethers that will allow us to get to know one another better. During our meetings, we take suggestions for outings and trips. Some activities have been apple picking, cookouts, cherry-picking, fish fry, and shopping excursions. Our goal is to be active and to encourage one another.
At Sharpe Road, we believe that evangelism and outreach go hand and hand. We believe that as we reach out to various places and people in our Greensboro, North Carolina area, that there are opportunities to build relationships and share the gospel of Jesus Christ. Because of this, we have a ministry for those that love to focus on marketing, outreach, and building relationships in our local communities.
