Hello! I’m Rev. Sarah Thornhill and I’m excited to pastor First United Methodist Church of Skiatook!

I’m an Oklahoma native - I was born and raised in Bartlesville and attended The University of Oklahoma for undergrad (boomer!), where I met my husband Chase. We’ve been married since 2012. I studied at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary for my Master of Divinity, and miss being a 20 minute walk from the beaches of Lake Michigan and enjoying deep-dish Chicago pizza!

There are many things I love about ministry. I have a great passion for preaching: declaring the Good News in a way that is relevant and empowering for people is a challenge I love taking on! I absolutely love connecting with people and learning their stories! Sitting down to coffee with someone new is fun to me (and doesn’t seem like work at all)! I love to be part of the community that we’re serving: engaging in service, connecting with community leaders and finding where the energy is, and seeing how the Holy Spirit might be calling us to new creative ministries. I also count it has such an honor to be part of really tender moments in people’s lives: weddings, crises, illness, and funerals. It’s a privilege to be invited into these moments.

I love to be active: walking and hiking (anything that gets me outside), dance, and yoga. I’m a voracious reader, and a good book is one of my favorite ways to unwind. My husband is a building superintendent for a home builder in Tulsa. He’s a big golfer in his free time. We love to play games and soak up time with our two year old, Griffin! Griffin is active, joyful, and a little ornery, so he keeps us on our toes! We have two fur babies, Foster and Ollie, who love to cuddle and wait for any food Griffin drops.

I look forward to how the Holy Spirit leads us in sharing Christ’s love in new ways with our community!
