A Community Service night to honor Kodi Braden Pipes of Clay City, who died Nov. 19, 2003, will be Jan. 24 at the Clay County Fairgrounds from 7 to 10 p.m. It will be a night "to praise God for the overflowing love he has in our lives with testimony, prayer and worship."
Pipes, whose friends say he "served the Lord truly and passed his love on to others," would have been celebrating his 14th birthday on Jan. 24. His family and friends want to make the best day of it that they can.
A message will be delivered, including testimonies from teenagers; Kodi's mother, Ronna Timberman; and Kodi's uncle, Troy Timberman. The theme will be "Overflow" as those involved plan to "overflow God's wonderful love." Anyone with questions about the message can contact Troy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A love offering will be taken up during the service, with all proceeds going to the Kodi Pipes Scholarship Fund.
The Community Worship Band will also be featured at the Community Service night.
At this time, the music team consists of the following members: Robert Hopkins, drums; Eric Vanatti, piano; Alen Syx, bass guitar; Noah Coley, bass/guitar; Angie Sterret, guitar; Justin Boyd, guitar/vocal; Brittany Rood, vocal; Steph Miller, guitar/vocal; Jessica Raderstorf, vocal; Heather Johnson, vocal; T.L. Roeschlein, vocal; Andrew Collins, vocal; Jennifer Defore, vocal; and Jordan Bussing, technical.
They plan to do many slow songs as well as many "rock out" songs. Anyone with song requests can e-mail Eric Vanatti at Kippster2004@aol.com in advance.
Anyone who would like to be on the music team for the event can also contact Eric. These should be "people who are interested in showing their talents off to the Lord for a night full of praise and worship."
Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend this special night.
