Quiet Obedience

Quiet Obedience

A humble and quiet mama of a bunch of littles contacted Grace Klein Community about committing to serve regularly with their family. They all wanted to come, even the daddy, and could they come on Friday afternoons. You are kidding, right?? Everyone tries to sneak out on Friday afternoons and you want to come? And you would love to come clean and tidy the loose ends? Yes, absolutely yes. Please…Keep Reading

Her as the Herald

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

“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

Boldly Meek

Boldly Meek

She comes running to help with that gorgeous hair of hers flying through the wind. No work too grimy or messy for her. She jumps right in, sorting the donated produce and hauling the heavy compost. All joy as her quiet self scurries around almost looking for the tasks no one else wants to do. A servant leader, strong in her fragile, bold in her meek, generous in secret. Have…Keep Reading

“One More Time”

“One More Time”

When I think of “people of Grace Klein,” I will always think of Beulah Brown and thank God that the Womacks invited us along to meet her. Jesus gave them a friendship with Beulah that they quickly shared with all of us. Many people have taught me about community in this almost 10 year journey serving with Grace Klein Community and the saying really is true “we are better together.”…Keep Reading

Our Flower Child

Our Flower Child

We love hippies, young “up and coming” hippies and old soul hippies. What is a hippie: “a person, especially of the late 1960s, who rejected established institutions and values and sought spontaneity, direct personal relations expressing love, and expanded consciousness, often expressed externally in the wearing of casual, folksy clothing and of beads, headbands, used garments, etc.” Our better together, Holly Hurt is NOT from the late 1960’s, but she…Keep Reading

Jack of All Trades

Jack of All Trades

Let’s be honest, the majority of volunteers at Grace Klein Community are female. We do have some awesome men who help out on a regular basis, but us women outnumber them by a LOT! Over a month ago, we had a young man named Mitchell waltz into the office ready to volunteer. Mitchell was seeking a place to serve and heard about Grace Klein Community through a friend and GKC…Keep Reading

Grace Klein Community is busting at the seams! We are outgrowing our space and it is awesome. God continues to do more and more! We are so thankful to see how the Lord continues to use Grace Klein Community to impact Birmingham families and many around the world, but we can’t hide that this awesomeness also comes with challenges. Upstairs can look like a maze leading up to our monthly…Keep Reading

Taste and See What the Lord Has Done

Taste and See What the Lord Has Done

In January 2014 a team traveled from Grace Klein Community, Inc. to our partner ministry Kwathu Children’s Home in Livingstone, Zambia. During the journey, we met a ministry advocate named Natalie Spronk, a native of South Africa. God had birthed in her heart a huge desire to invest in Kwathu Children’s Home and she had sold all her possessions and left her professional Human Resource job to come serve at…Keep Reading

A Community for the People, By the People

Have you visited the GKC Trade Market on Sundays? A group of volunteers host a bountiful trade market on the main level of our offices for two hours, most Sundays. (We are closed the Sunday of Food Delivery weekend.) Food available on Sundays is provided by our many rescued food donors who care far beyond their business sales. Each donation surprises the palates of friends, neighbors, family and “strangers” who…Keep Reading

God is in the Details

God is in the Details

“You see many charities and non-profits asking for help. They need donations and volunteers. There are so many that you may have become desensitized to their needs and their mission. It happens. But sometimes God places a certain non-profit on your heart. A year ago, Melanie Weeks looked at Grace Klein Community’s website. She looked at it again a while later. We aren’t sure how many times she visited our…Keep Reading

“Are you kidding? I love this!”

“Are you kidding? I love this!”

“I LOVE organizing!” These three words are often rare, yet BEAUTIFUL when heard from the lips of an energetic, self-motivated volunteer who isn’t afraid of taking initiative and tackling a task that may seem tiresome to others.  Giavanna is one such mama. No task is too difficult for her. No height is too hard to reach. No situation to too dirty to take care of. Regularly, Giavanna devotes her days…Keep Reading
