Director of Children's Music Ministryoffice: 706-543-1442 x213

Sarah Lawing grew up in Fayetteville, North Carolina and has always been a United Methodist. She received undergraduate degrees in Clarinet Performance and Choral Music Education at UNC-Greensboro and then moved to Athens to obtain her master’s and doctorate degrees in Clarinet Performance. Sarah has worked with children, youth, and adults in church music programs since 2007. Although she thought she would go on to be a college professor, we are thankful that God brought her to our church to serve on staff in 2014. Sarah married her husband Matthew in 2006 and they have two daughters: Collette, born in 2011, and Tabitha, born in 2013. She is passionate about helping children find ways to worship God that are authentic to who they are and who God is and loves the Athens live music scene.
