DETROIT, June 19, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Greater Grace Temple's Senior Pastor Bishop Charles H. Ellis III is headed next week to South Carolina in the wake of the horrific massacre at Charleston's Emanuel AME Church. Bishop Ellis is headed to the grieving city with moral and financial support for the church and the families who are affected.
"It is during these times of national tragedy and irrational hatred that we must breach the denominational walls that divide us and unite for the common good of saving our communities," said Bishop Ellis.

This message will be delivered at both worship services at 7:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. at Greater Grace Temple in Detroit. In addition, to being the Senior Pastor of Greater Grace Temple, Bishop Ellis is also the Presiding Bishop of the 1.3 million member Pentecostal Assemblies of the World (PAW) and the direct Overseer of its South Carolina diocese.
