Grace Klein Community loves community events!
On Saturday, September 14th, Rocky Ridge Cumberland Presbyterian Church hosted a Regional Women’s Conference entitled “Walking in Love.”
The day was complete with a luncheon, a speaker, door prizes and a service project that attendees could participate in while onsite. Grace Klein Community was honored to be asked to provide the activity and was allowed time to speak and share our mission with the ladies. Rachael Cannon and Tracie Mark represented Grace Klein Community and led the women in creating beautiful individual fabric patches that the women each personalized, to be hand-sewn on our burlap curtains in our food pantry.
We were able to share how nothing is wasted at Grace Klein Community and that every hand that touches our ministry matters! Thank you, ladies, for all your help.
On Tuesday, September 24th, Trace Crossings Elementary hosted a Parent’s Night Out for the families in their English Learners Program. Their aim was to connect families in Hoover with services available in the community such as education, health care, student activities and other resources. Grace Klein Community was honored to be included in the list of participating vendors.
Tracie Mark attended the event on behalf of Grace Klein Community and was astounded and delighted at the culturally diverse group of parents and teachers that Trace Crossing currently serves. “We serve a pretty large number of Hispanic families through our daily food rescue pantry, but it completely blessed my heart to be able to communicate through the provided translators, to so many more families and ethnicities, what Grace Klein Community has to offer them, above and beyond food.” – Tracie Mark
The night was a wonderful success and the hands and feet of Jesus were represented through everyone there.
