volunteer of the week UNNAMED HEROES

This week’s volunteer of the week at The Community Fellowship are … UNNAMED HEROES!!!


Volunteers at The Community Fellowship are invaluable to us and worth their weight in gold!  We take great joy in recognizing, through our Volunteer of the Week, those that strive to help others and help our church demonstrate the love of God to our community.


Volunteers share their time and talents without any compensation, so it's crucial, to us, to acknowledge their contributions and let them know they are valued and deeply appreciated.  This week we want to recognize those exceptional volunteers that haven’t wanted their names mentioned.


The compassion these volunteers show to the people we serve is an inspiration for us all.  We've noticed how they treat everyone with respect and kindness, no matter what the situation is.  We know how stressful it can be for the people who find themselves in need of the services we provide, and the words and actions of our volunteers go a long way toward helping them keep their dignity.


We want to let you know what an outstanding job you are doing with the children you work with.  They really respond to you, and that's probably due to how patient you are with them.  We can hear their laughter and excitement about the lessons you teach, and we see their confidence growing each week.  You have such a wonderful ability to meet each child at his or her ability level and work up from there.  The children are so lucky to have you as their teacher, and so are we.


Thank you for helping sort and organize all the donations we have received.  It has been a lot of work, but you've done a wonderful job keeping the inflow and outflow running smoothly and helping us prepare for Clothes Closet, Mother’s Day Car Care, back2School and REACH Ministries.  You are such an important part of our church family, and we hope you know that.


Thank you for all the hard work and many hours you have contributed to our New Campus to make it safe and get it ready for us all to move into. 


Thank you for the many meals you have helped to cook, serve and clean up after each month and for always treating those that come to eat like a special guest.


Thank you for the oil changes, the diagnostics, the washed feet, haircuts and water carried.


Thank you for standing at the door of the sanctuary simply to smile and welcome people in. 


Thank you for serving in front of our congregation week after week to lead us into worship. 


We just want you to know that your work hasn't gone unnoticed, and we thank you for all that you do.


Romans 12:9-13 Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection.  Outdo one another in showing honor.  Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord.  Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.  Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.”


We are honored to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for a job well done.  Thank you so much for your labor of love with, in and through The Community Fellowship.  Your willingness to use your gifts and abilities has strengthened the mission and ministry of this church.  You have also been a powerful example of servant-leadership and giving.  For all your time, support, effort, hard work and prayers, please accept the thanks and appreciation of this church, its leaders, staff and pastor.  Our volunteers are the ones who represent who we are and share the love of Christ in a way we’d never be able to without them.  We couldn’t do what we do without you!  Thank YOU!
