Sharon grew up in the Jamestown Alliance Church so this is home for her. She has her BA in Christian Education. Sharon works in the Nursery and is a Deaconess. She also leads the Hooks & Needles Craft class.  Sharon and Rev. Steven's children:  Rev. Andrew (Shilo); Patrick (Carrie); Stephanie (Jamie); Shandiemarie; & Katie (Evan)  are scattered all across the USA as well as their 12 + awesome grandchildren.

Her favorite Scripture is :

Zephaniah 3:17 {ESV}

 The Lord your God is in your midst,
    a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
    he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.

She loves to sing (even though it is a joyful noise) and loves to laugh.
Baseball (NY Mets), crocheting, reading and gardening are all part of her hobbies. 
She also works part-time at Joann Fabrics.
