“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love and in purity.” (1 Timothy 4:12)  If there ever was a verse that exemplified Jalen Mosely, this is it. This young man is one of our regular afternoon volunteers and believe it or not, he is still in high school! The first day that he showed up, stating that he was here…Keep Reading

Hidden Treasure

Hidden Treasure

“Have you ever wished that you had something or had a need for something that just showed up on its own? We all know that God knows about all our needs and wants and provides for those according to His will, but sometimes He sends someone like Taney Brazeal. Taney has only been volunteering with us for a few months, but he undoubtedly shows up with the exact thing we just prayed for and at…Keep Reading

Grace. We all have a story, every triumph and tragedy precious to God. Mine can be summed up very simply in that all too familiar bible verse: “My Grace is sufficient for you…” – 2 Cor 12:9 We take these ancient words for granted, until we are faced with tragedy, desperation, or loss. There is no great story that doesn’t include these elements. There is no great story that teaches…Keep Reading

She Will Not Fall

She Will Not Fall

“She is clothed with strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future.” – Proverbs 31:25 We all know a women who lights up any room she enters, or the woman who has never met a stranger. At GKC, one such woman is Terry Zuniga. Her bold personality cannot go unnoticed, nor can her boisterous voice go unheard. One top of that, her purity of heart and intention…Keep Reading

Training Up Boys

Training Up Boys

“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” – Proverbs 27:17 Many community members make serving GKC a family effort, but few families are able to also involve their teenagers! Preston and his wife Robin (to read more about Robin, please follow the link to her Better Together article) are some of GKC’s most committed members. Preston has provided his inner and physical strength in virtually every facet of…Keep Reading

Tracie Mark Smith – Office Host and Prayer

God truly is the Circle Maker and the Producer of “all things working together for good.” He has shown His Sovereignty and faithfulness in my life in more ways than one, especially in my relationship with Grace Klein Community. I was first introduced to this ministry in 2011 when serving out the end of an initial 10 year prison sentence at the Lovelady Center. I had graduated the program and…Keep Reading

Grace Got You!

Grace Got You!

“Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them.” – Romans 12:6 Much like in any other community, every person plays a critical role in its successes: some of us are gifted with strength to move mountains or hold steadfast at the brink of temptation; some use their intelligence and heart to solve problems for the greater good or for the struggling individual; others…Keep Reading

Our Sunday Best

Our Sunday Best

“For He satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.” – Psalm 107:9 Sunday is a time where most of us slow down after the hectic week, and finally have time to reflect on how we are coping and what we are grateful to have. Our Sunday Trade Market is a highlight for most. We often have familiar faces, as well as a handful of newcomers; all of…Keep Reading

Joyfully Optimistic

Joyfully Optimistic

“To call Ms. Penny a fireball is as much an understatement as is calling the lioness a kitten. The energy she brings to GKC community is dramatically started and joyfully optimistic. When someone comes by the Sunday Trade Market, she is virtually always the first person to ask them if they have enough milk/eggs/bread/etc., and with cheer in her voice, helps accommodate any questions or needs the person may have….Keep Reading

Angels Among Us

Angels Among Us

When Jesus came He embodied His followers with an amazing gift, the Holy Spirit, that came to dwell in us. The Holy Spirit came to equip us to live like Jesus, to love like He loves, to serve like He serves, to spread hope like He spreads. Often, when we talk about angels, we think of how an angel protects us while we sleep, in a car wreck, from the…Keep Reading

Our expansion project has been a test of faith, courage, trust, obedience and stick-to-itiveness.
