Meet Our Director

Sarah Smith joined the staff of First United Methodist Covington in March 2018. As the Children’s Ministry Coordinator, Sarah works to create curriculum for children (Prek4 to Grade 5) that teaches biblical literacy and encourages spiritual growth. She facilitates a schedule of volunteers for Children’s Church, Sunday School, Wednesday evening activities, as well as special children’s ministry events throughout the year. Sarah strives to ignite a love of God and a love of people in our children, so they become disciples and change our world!

Sarah is also a long-time and avid supporter of Girl Scouts Heart of the South, the Covington Food Pantry, and local PTO and PTA groups.  She has helped to recruit, motivate, and facilitate girls to become go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, and leaders in our community. She has also volunteered at and coordinated dozens of events, from fundraiser kickoffs to color runs to concession sales and school dances.

Sarah has been married to her husband Robert since 2009. They have two children, RJ and Alanna, and numerous pets ranging from dogs to chickens to hamsters. When she’s not on the go, Sarah loves to lounge around her oversized swimming pool.
