volunteer of the week KENNY KOGER

This week’s volunteer of the week at The Community Fellowship is Kenny Koger!!!

 

Kenny Koger has been a part of The Community Fellowship family for 6 years.

 

As his work schedule allows, Kenny blesses us by volunteering at the church helping with the general cleaning as well as assisting others by getting food boxes and helping those in emergency situations get clothes from the Clothes Closet.

 

Kenny is a member of the REACH Team and also does Security during our Second Saturday Clothes Closet Ministry.  We can always depend on Kenny to be on hand at our annual Family Fall Festival in October where he said he “wrapped a thousand hot dogs one year!”

 

During our Mother’s Day Car Care Clinic Kenny fluctuates between helping working on cars to being a runner for supplies and working in the Clothes Closet Area.

 

August is a busy time for Kenny with our B2S (back2school) Ministry each yearHe has volunteered by working in the warehouse and sorting school supplies as well as being on hand during Pack the Bus.  During the event Kenny tries to fill in where ever he is needed.  Typically he can be found helping to get the clothes arranged orderly so the children can easily shop and he also enjoys working in the Shoe Area.

 

Kenny works at Nautica and spends much of his time taking care of his sister, Kristy, who is having some health issues.  He also volunteers at our New Campus when he can and regularly checks the property and the gate while he is in the area.

 

In his spare time Kenny tries to promote the church and attempts to reach lost and hurting people that others may not feel comfortable talking to.  He enjoys hunting, fishing and spending time with his sister, Kristy and his niece Wendy Mae.

 

When asked what he’d like for his church family to know about him he replied, “I’m basically too shy to approach people because of the way I look, but I’m an open book and I welcome them to approach me and talk and make friends.”  He went on to say that, “before coming to The Community Fellowship I was the biggest atheist ever.  I visited the church with my parents, Kenneth and Mary Koger, and heard Michael talk about Jesus and a warm feeling came over me.  Now I’m saved, baptized and kind of on the crazy side!”

 

Kenny’s favorite Bible Verse is John 11:25, 26 Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life.  Anyone who believes in Me will live, even after dying.  Everyone who lives in Me and believes in Me will never die.  Do you believe this, Martha?”

 

We are honored to know and recognize Kenny Koger as our Community Fellowship Volunteer of the Week!  Thank you, Kenny, for your kind spirit and your genuine desire to serve the Lord by serving others!  We love you!
