Director of Children's Ministry

Mary Sanchez has been on staff as the Director of Children’s Ministry since 2007. In 1985, her passion for children was ignited through teaching Sunday school at Central Church in Memphis, TN. Since then, she has been very involved in volunteer work over the years through her children’s schools, media center, WIC, VBS, Pioneer Clubs and neighborhood committees. Mary has taught in both private and public schools and served on the School Governance Council for Charleston County, SC Schools from 1995-1998.

Mary, her husband, Mark, and children, Andria and Stefan, moved to Macon in 1998. The family joined North Macon Presbyterian church, where Mary started the preschool in 1999 and in 2000 she assumed the responsibility of the Children’s Ministry.

Mary is very excited that the Lord called her to First Presbyterian Church as the Children’s Ministry Director where she is responsible for children, Infants through the sixth grade. Encouraging and nurturing children with the message of Christ’s unconditional love and guiding them to grow into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is Mary’s ultimate desire and purpose for the children of First Presbyterian Church.
