Russ and Michelle Kasey have been a part of The Community Fellowship family since the church began, and this week we say a huge THANK YOU as they prepare to move to Wilmington, North Carolina. Russ and Michelle have worked and volunteered in a number of ministries.
Michelle served as our Dream Center’s bookkeeper for several years. She also was instrumental in being a strong role model for many of our Community Service workers. Michelle consistently went the extra mile with them by inviting them on her family outings and being genuinely concerned about their safety, choices and well-being. Many of these young people had not had the experience of being held accountable or of being in positive settings until she graciously included them in hers.
Other ministries Michelle has served in include our 2nd Saturday Meal, assisting with the offering on Sundays, serving in the Nursery and doing Administrative work within the church and The Community Dream Center.
Michelle also lead our back2school Ministry for several years and oversaw the organizing, planning and operation of it so that the children being blessed felt special and cared about on the day they arrived to get their new shoes, socks, book bags, haircuts and clothes.
Russ has been the leader of our Worship Team, though he sees himself more as a “Band Director”. On Sunday mornings Russ leads the church in praise and song.
Seeing himself more in a behind the scenes capacity, Russ has worked in many of our back2school Ministries doing the necessary, and often unseen, jobs that ensure the success of the events. He also did many renovations on our present church building helping to make it into our place of fellowship and worship that we now enjoy.
Russ and Michelle enjoy boating, the Autumn Leaves Festival in Mt. Airy, getting together with friends and neighbors and especially spending time with their grandchildren Mia and Jaden.
A favorite Scripture for Michelle is Philippians 4:6-7 “
Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God, I will be exhalted among all the nations and the earth.”
