It's Time to Love Our Neighbors
Toxic tap water in Flint has rendered the water undrinkable and put the entire city in a state of emergency. With no access to clean water, Flint residents are struggling to find the resources to obtain drinkable water. The city is in desperate need of clean water, water filters, test kits and more. Please consider making a donation today.
Help Salem Lutheran in Flint provide long term relief to the people to whom they minister. They plan to replace their water infrastructure and install a filtration system so that they can provide clean, safe water. In addition, they plan to distribute water filters - the government is providing them now, but they will need to be replaced eventually.
Regardless of the politics of the Flint water crisis, what we know to be fact is that many are without usable water. As disciples, what we also know to be fact is that Christ calls us to assist in times of need such as this. Christ calls us to action!
While we can’t personally repair the corroded water infrastructure in Flint, Michigan we can be part of alleviating the burden until these repairs have been made. We can be part of what it means to love our neighbor by being a source of water and financial assistance to the lives impacted by this crisis.
Congregations & individuals from all over Michigan have already begun delivering water to Salem Memorial but the need will be great and for the foreseeable future. Help us support the community of Flint!
Let’s let the residents of Flint, MI know that we are here for them, hold them in prayer, and willing to go the extra mile to get them life-giving water!
