volunteer of the week JEANNIE HOPKINS

This week we honor Jeannie Hopkins as The Community Fellowship’s Volunteer of the Week!

 

Jeannie Hopkins, her husband, GB, and their family have been at The Community Fellowship for 2 years.

 

Jeannie takes care of our Emergency Food Pantry making sure that there is always food to be given to people in need when they come to us for help.  Being an avid couponer, Jeannie uses her skills not only to benefit our Pantry and the food ministries that she is involved in, but she also helps others learn to coupon and be better able to take care of their own families.

 

During our 2nd Saturday breakfasts Jeannie often volunteers in the kitchen helping prepare the meals and aiding those that need assistance.

 

Jeannie is involved in several areas of our back2school event.  She worked in the Pack the Bus Ministry recently, and she has been busy sorting and counting the school supplies as they come in.  On August 2nd Jeannie will be washing the children’s feet and ministering to them as they come to get their new shoes, book bags, school supplies and clothes.

 

In August Jeannie will join a group from our church going on a Mission Trip to Nicaragua.  She has been busy sewing dresses, by hand, to give to the people they will meet there.

 

Jeannie does outreach ministry in the community and recently was told by a formerly homeless woman she met through the REACH Ministry that it was because of her (Jeannie’s) stubbornness in wanting to help her that she is now getting disability benefits and attending church.  This lady also recently learned that she has a medical condition that would have led to her death if she hadn’t gotten medical attention when she did.

 

During her spare time Jeannie loves to spend time with her children, George, Nathan, Andrew and James.  Next Tuesday is Jeannie’s birthday as well, and we want wish her a great birthday!

 

Jeannie’s favorite Bible verse is Philippians 4:13 “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.”

 

We are tremendously happy to recognize Jeannie Hopkins as our Volunteer of the Week!  Thank you, Jeannie, for showing the love of God to our community!

I was reading an article from a pastor that was sharing his heart for his church family and impacting his community one person at a time...
