RIDGEWAY (WSLS 10) - Members of Grace Baptist Church in Ridgeway are lending a helping hand to the people of Flint, Michigan.

Five people from the church will leave for Flint on July 14 and be there until the 17th.

Their goal is to distribute 16,000 bottles of water to families.

They will also be handing out gospel tracts.

The church is trying to collect $4,000 by July 12 to pay for the trip.

Pastor Dennis Wingate says this part of the church's ongoing effort to take at least one mission trip a year.

"We're going to be at that distribution site and generally you give as much as people want. So, we're going to at least give a minimum of a case to an individual. There could be some individuals that get much more," Pastor Wingate explained.

Donations to the church for the trip can be made in person or by mail to Grace Baptist Church, 6432 Greensboro Road, Ridgeway VA 24148 – Attention: Flint Water Project.
