ABOUT US

Our congregation is thoroughly rooted in our community, serving here for over 200 years, from the town’s earliest days.  With Christians of all traditions, we are founded on faith in God through a living Christ.  In Jesus, we find a renewed life of purpose based in love, with forgiveness and hope, now and eternally.

Dick Sharber has been serving as pastor at Hamburg Baptist Church since 2009.  He and wife, Susie (who teaches 8th grade science), live in Oakland, with 3 adult children spread around the map.  Dick has served several American Baptist Churches in NJ and has also worked with hospice as chaplain / bereavement counselor for the past ten years.  He graduated from Palmer Seminary (PA) and has been enriched by a Doctor of Ministry program at Trinity Seminary (IL).  Pastor Dick is thankful for the renewal, challenges and rewards in ministry, and has found the congregation at Hamburg Baptist to be the sweetest and most gracious with whom he has served.
