Sarah Ackers

Volunteer & Engagement Coordinator

Hi! I’m Sarah Ackers, the Volunteer and Engagement Coordinator. When my husband, Ben, and I first visited Fauntleroy Church in 2004, we knew we had found more than a picturesque sanctuary for our upcoming wedding; we had found our spiritual home. After officially joining the church as members in 2006, we enjoyed putting our skills and passions to work for the good of our new faith community: we signed up for committees and ministries, I joined the choir, Ben volunteered to design the church's website, and together we began attending the monthly potluck fellowship group that I coordinate today. Our children, Katie and Kyle, are growing up to be caring and thoughtful people, due in part to the relationships they've developed and observed at the YMCA, Little Pilgrim School, and at Fauntleroy Church.

As your Volunteer and Engagement Coordinator, I now have the pleasure of helping others who regularly attend Fauntleroy Church find ways to use their skills and passions to serve others and fully engage in our shared church community. Though I'm often tasked with recruiting volunteers to fill specific needs, I most enjoy discovering people's true passions and tracking down ways for them to contribute. The volunteer opportunities within the church and broader community are many and varied. There truly is a place for everyone at Christ's table.

Fauntleroy Church is my church. The people here are my friends. This is my community. I call this church home, and I can't think of a place I'd rather work!
