CHICAGO (ELCA) – In response to the water crisis in Flint, Mich., members from Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Livonia, Mich., delivered more than 3,000 gallons of donated water Jan. 31 to the congregation of Salem Lutheran Church in Flint.
“I thought it was a tremendous outpouring of love,” said the Rev. Monica Villarreal, pastor of Salem. “It was a wonderful expression of love that came to Flint.”
“We’ve got a little heart for Salem and what they’re doing in Flint,” said Kathy Weinberg, a member of Holy Trinity. “We know how important it is that they stay in their community and reach out to the people.”
Villarreal said including the donations from Holy Trinity, Salem has received water from 25 Michigan congregations of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).
