Grace Klein Community creates many different intentional gatherings to provide opportunities for members to laugh, grow, serve, pray, and worship together. Our events give opportunities for members to live life together.
Annual events include:
Camping Week – families camp together at a local state park during the Memorial Day week period, allowing any family to experience simple delights of hiking, canoeing, swimming, smores, sleeping in a tent and camp fires. Over 100 people come each year to enjoy one another, explore, experience God’s creation and share meals together.
Baptism services – worship times by creeks or lakes that allow new followers of Jesus to profess their faith in Christ in front of community members that love and support their decision to know Jesus
