Dr. James W. Mercer,

A teacher in the community for 17 years, Sharon serves in several church areas and feels that her job as secretary is more of a ministry. If you can't find her, check the weather, she may be at the beach with a good book.
As long as we live in this world, times of hardship and discouragement will occasionally catch up with us. That's why finding your place at Hollinger's Island Baptist Church can and will make a wonderful difference in your life. Since 1936 one recurring theme has held the church true to its calling: to provide the comfort, the refuge, and the Christ-centered encouragement families and individuals must have to survive during times of hardship, loss and personal struggle. That theme is..."the love of God lived out through His people."
