What to expect
We’re glad you’re interested in visiting. But, before we start.
#1 - You need to know we’re sinners. We NEED Jesus. We’re trying to grow up in Him. Most of the people you meet at Sharon RP will be nice and friendly. But, we’re about grace here and someone might be having a hard day. Remember, we’re all still growing. If you’re looking for a church full of perfect people we’re not for you. If you’re looking to grow by being saturated in the love and word of Jesus - welcome home.
+ Where are you all?
We're between Mediapolis & Morning Sun. Our address is 25204 160th Ave. Morning Sun, IA 52640. There's a map at the bottom of the page to help you out.
+ What should I wear?
Clothes. We're interested in seeing you grow not in your fancy clothes.
+ What time do things start?
Worship starts at 10am and lasts about an hour.
+ Where Should I go when I come?
Don't worry Pastor Bryan will be there to greet you. We'll show you around. If you have questions, great, ask away.
+ What about my kids?
Great question! Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me and do not stop them. For theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven." We welcome kids to worship and to grow with us. Don't worry if they wiggle or talk. If you feel they need a break you can take them to the family room. After worship there are Sunday School classes for all our little sprouts.
+ What's worship like?
We believe God has given us guidance for how He wants to be worshiped. So we keep it simple. We're aiming at the heart without missing the mind. We try to do what He's told us He likes. We pray to the Father in Jesus' name, we sing about Jesus from the Bible, we read about Jesus in the Bible, and Pastor Bryan preaches about Jesus from the Bible.
