Here is a bio and foto of the new pastor/teacher at Wellborn United Methodist Church.

Wellborn United Methodist  Church welcomes Pastor Sherry Adams  . She is preaching and teaching Sundays at 11 A.M. and Wednesday evenings at 7 P.M. The church is located at 12005 CR 137, Wellborn.

The Rev. Dr. Sherry Adams was born in Seattle, Washington, but has lived in Live Oak, Florida, off and on for thirteen years.  She is the daughter of a naval officer from Elkins, West Virginia and a bookkeeper from Seattle, Washington.

She has lived all over the United States: Hawaii, California, Rhode Island, Maryland, Virginia, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, and in Florida,  Gainesville, Tallahasee and Live Oak.  Sherry served as middle school counselor in the Suwannee County School System and also taught at Suwannee High.

In 1985 she relocated from Live Oak to Tallahassee to pursue a doctorate in Psychology. It was while in private practice as a psychologist and as a visiting instructor at Florida State University that she sensed a call to ordained ministry.  She then attended Trinity School for Ministry in Ambridge, PA- just west of Pittsburgh- and was ordained a deacon in 2001 and a pastor (priest) in 2002.  She has served churches in Philadelphia PA, New Orleans, LA, and in Gainesville, FL.

Pastor Sherry has two grown children, David (a structural engineer in Denton, Texas), and Meredith (a paraprofessional at Suwannee Primary School, Live Oak)  Meredith is married to Job Garrison, a farmer in Suwannee and Madison counties. They have two children, Noah (8) and Chloe (6).

Currently Pastor Sherry hosts the beginnings of an Anglican Church in her home in Live Oak on Sunday nights, teaches psychology at Santa Fe College in Gainesville and is preaching, teaching and providing pastoral assistance to the Wellborn United Methodist Church. For leisure, she enjoys time with her family, University of Florida football, reading and stitching.
