Her son, Thomas was born in Waco and is 12 years old. He attends Valor Preparatory Academy, enjoys playing sports and is a part of our Youth Ministry.

Sarah and Thomas serve in Guest Ministries on Sunday mornings together.


Why did you decide to volunteer with Guest Ministries?

This summer I wanted to find a way to serve with Thomas on a Sunday mornings, and Guest Ministries gave us the perfect opportunity. It has been fun to have mother and son time together serving at church!

What is your vision for serving with Guest Ministries?

For years we have appreciated how welcoming the Guest Ministries volunteers are and how ready they are to serve and greet you. So many people consider Antioch to be a welcoming place, and that starts when you first walk up to the church. Whether someone has attended for years or they are a first-time visitor, we want to welcome others as we have felt welcomed all through the years. Our church has grown so much, and it’s important to keep things as personable as possible.

Do you have a testimony to share about your time serving?

When my children were little it always meant a lot to have someone there to smile and open a door. It’s so much fun to see all the young families of today and I love that Thomas is able to look for ways to help others, whether it’s a friendly greeting or opening the door for someone.
