DETROIT, Jan. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The need is immense, but Greater Grace Temple in Detroit, and Bethlehem Temple Church of Flint have joined forces to collect and distribute water to those who need it in Flint, MI. Donations from the community and church members are pouring in and the group looks to make a huge delivery to Bethlehem Temple, 3401 Martin Luther King Blvd. in Flint on Monday at 3:00 p.m. The Flint church would then handle distribution to those needing water. The public can drop off bottled water from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. until Saturday at Greater Grace Temple.
"If everyone just does 'a little something,' it will all add up to be a lot," said Greater Grace Temple Senior Pastor Bishop Charles H. Ellis III to his Wednesday Noon Bible Class. "We must do our part for our Flint neighbors to help them through this crisis, and let them know they are not in it alone." Bishop Ellis will also speak on the water crisis in Flint during services at Greater Grace Temple this Sunday at 11:00 a.m. He is also Presiding Bishop of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World (PAW) which has more than 2200 churches worldwide.
Bethlehem Temple is led by Pastor Phillip Thompson. The Pentecostal Assemblies of the World is the world's oldest Apostolic organization and is headquartered in Indianapolis, IN.
