Meet the Staff | Sara Runstadler

Getting To Know… Sara Runstadler
Administrative Assistant & Membership Secretary

It takes a village to run a church, especially one as active as Johns Creek United Methodist Church. The reason it runs so smoothly is because of our dedicated staff, so we wanted to help you get to know them a little better



A Prayer For Sara

Loving God: you count every hair on every head, and your Son has promised that each of us is of untold value to you. Thank you for Sara, who bears forth your gifts in administration and care, reminding us of your unbounded grace in choosing and redeeming each of us. May her ministry continue to direct our eyes toward the newcomer, the one in need, the lost, and the lonely, indeed to those persons at whose side your Son continually abides. In his name we pray. Amen.
