China Biggs and her parents, Wayne and Carol, as well as her sister Jenny have been part of The Community Fellowship family for almost seven years.
Though China is only 19 years old, she is very dedicated to not only being a valuable leader she is also a vital part of many ministries where she enriches and blesses the lives of others.
China has taken several mission trips including going to West Virginia when she was 13 years old. She also has gone to South Dakota with the Youth Group and recently was part of a group that went to Nicaragua last year.
On Sundays China is a Teacher in our PreK Class. She is also available to step in and help wherever she is needed. China is active in our Youth Ministry on Wednesday evenings from 6 to 7:30pm. China was part of the large groups of teens from The Community that completed World Vision’s “30 HOUR FAMINE” that raised close to $2,000 for hunger around the world.
During B2S (back2school) outreach China ministers in the Foot Washing area. She also serves as being a Runner, getting shoes, clean water or whatever may be needed to ensure that the children receiving new shoes, socks, book bags, haircuts and clothes are well attended and feel very special that day.
Each year, China volunteers in our Pack the Bus Ministry (part of back2school) which typically entails spending many hours greeting shoppers outside of area stores and asking their help in providing school supplies for the children that will receive them during B2S. She then regularly works to pack book bags with the pencils, crayons, markers, paper and other items that will help the children receiving them to start the school year well prepared and confident.
China is a part of REACH Ministry that provides a free meal each Saturday at 5 pm at the Martinsville Hotel. She has also volunteered at our 2 Saturday Meal and Clothes Closet where she is a tremendous help in the clothing area.
In her spare time China enjoys being a volunteer by coming alongside of those in need of a helping hand. She also enjoys traveling and knows that in the future she wants her career to be in the area of helping others.
China’s favorite Bible verse is Job 8:7 “And though you started with little, you will end with much.”
We are very excited to recognize China Biggs as our The Community Fellowship Volunteer of the Week! Thank you, China, for demonstrating your servant’s heart and your desire to show God’s love to others through the ministries you are a part of at The Community. Your church family loves you, and we are indeed proud of you!
This Sunday we will celebrate BAPTISM in our worship hour at 10:10am. We are excited to be able to share how God continues to change the lives of people around The Community Fellowship.
Baptism is a step of following Jesus after you have been saved. So far 10 people have expressed a desire to be part of this week's celebration.
How about you? There is still time and space for you to be a part. Here is how...
