The congregation of Sharon Presbyterian Church is celebrating 175 years of faith, fellowship and food. We offer this book in thanksgiving for the grace of God during these uninterrupted years of worship and service.
Jane Starnes has done a thorough research and interpretation of the history of the Sharon community and the beginnings of our congregation in the context of that community. She traces the journey of the Presbyterian Church in North Carolina, then gives fascinating glimpses of the social structure and economy of the Sharon community and the culture of the early Sharon Presbyterian Church. Oral histories from several of our members provide delightful recollections of bygone days.
Susan Grills extensively researched the church and other records to reveal life in the 19th century, the biographies of our ministers and associate ministers and the veterans who served in the wars. Space has limited the use of her entire work in this book, but it can be accessed in the church office. Others have contributed articles about specific programs in the church.
David Beers picks up the story in the 1960s and describes the growth of our church in modern times: the educational and music programs, the expansion of the physical campus, the ministry to the Sharon community and to our less fortunate neighbors in the greater Charlotte community, as well as mission endeavors in foreign fields.
Current and former members of Sharon Presbyterian Church shared wonderful memories of people and events as well as favorite recipes. There is something here for everyone.
