Ricky Foster, his wife Barbara, and their daughter Beth have been a part of our Community Fellowship family for 18 months. During that time Ricky has strived to help out in many different ministries within our church and in the community.
Each August our church partners with other churches for the B2S (back2school) event. Ricky can be depended on to provide Security when the children receive their new shoes, socks, book backs, haircuts and clothes. He also is on hand to help with the sorting and packing of school supplies into book bags before the day of the giveaway.
Ricky has been a consistent volunteer at our New Campus helping to assure that we will soon be able to move in there. He also enjoys volunteering with Raceway Ministries by driving golf carts and assisting those in need.
In May Ricky is invaluable during our Mother's Day Car Care Clinic where women can receive free diagnostic of their cars along with a free oil change. Ricky is the owner of R & D Automotive and invites our church family to come see him there to get their State Inspections.
This past winter Ricky volunteered at the Winter Warming Shelter at Salvation Army where anyone in need of a safe and warm place to spend the night could go if the temperature was 32 degrees or lower.
In April, Ricky volunteers in the tent Ministry with Northside Baptist Church. He is also a cook with REACH Ministry that provides a free meal on Saturday nights at The Martinsville Hotel from 5‐6 pm. Everyone is welcome at this meal.
In his spare time Ricky likes to go hunting, fishing and goes camping when he has time. He also loves to spend time with his family, especially his daughter Beth who is 17 and his grandson Josh who is 6 years old.
Ricky's favorite Scripture is John 3:16 "For this is how God loved the world: He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life."
We are indeed happy to recognize Ricky Foster as our Community Fellowship Volunteer of the Week! Thank you, Ricky for going over and above to help others and to demonstrate the love of God to our community!
