Pastor Sharon to be with us in July
Effective July 1st, the Rev. Sharon L. Baker will be our new pastor.
 
Pastor Sharon hails from the Midwest and is currently serving the Marquette Park UMC in Gary, Indiana.  She has been in ministry in Indiana for more than 10 years serving churches in both rural and urban settings. She believes in the need for a personal relationship with Christ nourished by scripture, worship, study and prayer. She is a Stephen Minister and while caring for her mother prior to her death, has been the recipient of a Stephen Minister’s care.  She is familiar with and supports the Walk to Emmaeus.  She is committed to taking God’s love outside the church walls and to meeting the needs of people where they are.

Prior to answering the call to ministry, Pastor Sharon practiced law in Chicago, specializing in divorce and custody litigation.  She jokingly says that she went from the dark side to the light! She is a certified mediator and a skilled and successful grant writer.  

Pastor Sharon has fallen in love with New England!  She requested a move to the New England Conference to be closer to family in the Boston area and is thrilled to be moving to Moultonborough.   Indiana’s loss is our gain.  Pastor Sharon brings with her a faithful canine companion, Maggie, with whom she enjoys taking long walks. Other leisure-time passions are watching football – Yes, she cheers for the Patriots; cooking and baking – think potluck suppers; collecting antique kitchen ware; and having coffee with friends.

The Shepherd’s crook will soon be passing from Pastor Paul to Pastor Sharon.  Let us welcome her with prayerful anticipation, loving and joyful hearts, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
 

A Kid’s Celebration!
