Our Pastor

On July 1, 2015 we welcome Pastor Sherry L. Good to First UMC, Towanda.

Pastor Sherry has been called out of retirement to fullfill God's wonderful plan He has for First Church of Towanda. Sherry was born in Elmira, NY into a family of 9. She is the eldest of 6 siblings, all living! She is presently living in Powell. She has one adult daughter and three grandchildren she dotes on. Sherry began her adult life in nursing. She worked as a RN in Montour Falls at Schuyler Hospital for years. She then moved upstate to SUNY in Syracuse where she became a nursing administrator for the emergency department. She graduated in 2009 with a Masters of Divinity from Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School. She has also received training in Parish Nursing and Congregational Health Ministries. She is a Spiritual Director having received training through our conference's Center for Spiritual Formation. She is also a Natural Church Development Coach. Most recently she has received training for Recovery Ministries and Mental Health Emergencies.

Sherry will be sharing more of her faith journey, her call to ministry and her visions for this Church as she steps into God's pulpit. Pray for Sherry as she begins this transition and for this congregation to welcome her with open arms, love and grace.
