Random fact about Sarah:  She was a semi-professional cellist in orchestra and chamber groups; as a Congressional intern in Washington, D.C., she met Ronald Reagan in 1979 at his presidential bid announcement; and she wants to go zip-lining and deep-sea fishing someday.


Sarah enjoys most about being on the First Church team:  Working with truly godly people and belonging to the awesome family that is First Church!
