Sharon was raised in a pastor’s home where she learned the value of serving others. With her husband, Gaylord, she has been involved in church ministry for more than thirty years. Sharon currently serves as one of Black Rock’s receptionists, a position that allows her to be the first contact with those who are investigating or new to the church as she helps our existing church family connect with resources and staff. She is also actively involved with Black Rock Care which helps people by providing resources to address their emotional, physical and spiritual needs so that they can grow into Christ-likeness. With her husband, Sharon leads our active Young at Heart ministry to senior adults which challenges seniors to continue serving God as they enjoy this season of life. One of her most fulfilling areas of service is helping to coordinate Black Rock’s Moms of the Rock ministry where she has the opportunity to mentor young moms and love on their children. The Lemkes have been married forty-two years. They have two married daughters, and their eight grandchildren are the joy of Papa and Mimi's lives. Sharon loves cooking, sewing and worshiping God through music.
