Go Far, Go Together

 “If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” – African Proverb “Community is a beautiful thing and we most certainly are better together.

Thinking back over the past two months, we’re reminded of the scripture in Romans: “For as in one body we have many…Keep Reading

A commercial freezer was donated last month, but it is in loaned storage as we have nowhere to put it. Piles of clothes are everywhere because the donation room is overflowing. We started a building expansion initiative called 50K50Days and together we’ve raised over $10,000 so far. If…Keep Reading

Dynamite Comes in Small Packages

“One of my favorite things about working at Grace Klein Community is community. There are various types of people I come in contact with each day. We all look, sound, and act different. Sometimes I meet someone and it takes me a while to get close to them or earn their trust. Other times, I meet someone and we jive instantly. Lori Worford was one of those for me. Lori…Keep Reading
