5 Loaves and 2 Fish

At the beginning of April, two serve days were on the calendar. Two. Perhaps we thought we would not have sufficient help for the month ahead… God had other plans. As each day of April unfolded, so did the surprise calls of news that more churches and schools wanted to get involved with various Grace Klein Community serve projects. With all that God continues to bring our way, a serve…Keep Reading

Hope Restored

One important facet of Grace Klein Community is empowering community to care for one another in Jesus’ name. Each person is noticing other people, hearing their stories, meeting friends in brokenness, ministering to neighbors, sharing food with those who are struggling, really listening and stepping out in faith for one another. As community members discover legitimate situations, that need a big dose of love and community support, they bring the…Keep Reading

Be a Missionary

On April 23, 2018, we were invited to FBC Helena to share at the Tables of Love Dinner. Members of the church decorated each table with intentional bible verses and themes as an encouragement to all attendees. Dinner was served by men from the church. Worship was led by missionary couple Robert and Holly Hope and Jenny Waltman shared how we are all called to be missionaries. A generous offering…Keep Reading

Bambelela Drum Circle

Do you know the meaning of Bambelela? Bambelela is a Zulu word, one of South Africa’s native languages, meaning “Hold on.” Though we named the event purposefully to encourage participants, perhaps God had other reasons. What you might not know… two weeks prior to the Bambelela Drum Circle we were still begging God for the provision of drums, ultimately making the event possible. All those working behind the scenes were…Keep Reading

God Speaks to All of Us

Our community members are the heartbeat of Grace Klein Community. Without volunteer leadership, we would miss so many cool ideas and opportunities to share God’s love around Birmingham. Margaret Wilson gave us ideas on how to use stale bagels. She used chocolate chip bagels to make a bagel bread pudding for her neighbor. Then, with the whole wheat bagels she made bagel chips, picked up some spinach dip and delivered…Keep Reading

“Moon” Progress

“This latest update about Evan is written with joy and gratitude. Thank you to everyone who contributed prayers, pictures, and funds in recognition of Evan’s 34th birthday. Our family was surprised and joyously touched by the many who celebrated with us through Grace Klein Community. We feel blessed to have Evan as a son and also know him as a man of God still ministering to others as he overcomes…Keep Reading

Her as the Herald

“Do you know what a herald is? So to describe it, it’s basically someone whom is an official messenger of a cause or society bringing news to other outreaches/areas. A person who is a herald is responsible for interlinking people, ideas, warnings, knowledge, and just general news. Without them, through all of existence, there would have been less to no information advancement, no cultural education, and the world would be…Keep Reading

Volunteer of the Heart

“May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord,my Rock, my Redeemer.” – Psalms 19:14 Support comes in many different facets, born out of the hearts of individuals that care enough to deliver their aid for a cause or a meaning or a person, all for beneficial progression. Support is physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and it pays major dividends to receive any…Keep Reading

March “Madness”

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” – Isaiah 43:19 The Lord is indeed doing a new thing! We could not have anticipated the busy month ahead of us as March approached. In the crazy, we are hopeful. From meetings out of state, event planning and food drives,…Keep Reading

He Kept His Promise

“You know how in the book of Esther, none of God’s beautiful names are mentioned? Nope. Not one single name, not Yahweh, not Abba, not Lord and not Father. But if you know Esther’s story, you know God’s grace, mercy, sovereignty and providence are sewn throughout the story of Esther. Mordechai just happen to overhear a conversation. Vashti refusing to appear at the king’s banquet and Esther was chosen to…Keep Reading

Obedience is Love

A longstanding community friend, Allyson Sutton, reached out to Grace Klein Community after reading our monthly newsletter and here’s what she said… “I have something to run by you… And this is not set in stone but just an idea that the Lord laid on my heart this morning. Grant (her son and baseball player at Oak Mountain High School) is selling Boston butts for baseball and we have to…Keep Reading
