DETROIT, Dec. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — With the auto execs making their case before Congress this week, there are rapidly growing concerns in the Motor City about the future of America’s auto industry. Bishop Charles H. Ellis III and Greater Grace Temple are reaching out to all auto industry workers with a word of hope and encouragement. It happens at their special “Prayer and Consecration Service” on Sunday, Dec. 7 at 11:00 a.m.

Detroit (Southeast Michigan included) is facing its most crucial economic season in my 50 years of life,” says Bishop Ellis. The future of numerous businesses and thousands of individuals are hanging in the balance as we await the outcome of Congress’ decision regarding the aid being sought by the automotive industry. Lifestyles including the basics (home, transportation, food, education, health insurance, etc.) are in serious jeopardy. It is my firm belief that the religious community should engage its most potent weapon during this most dire hour and that is Prayer and Consecration.”

The service is aimed at all persons employed in the auto industry from executives to UAW workers to suppliers, and even business people who depend on the industry. During the service, Bishop Ellis will bring a special message entitled “A Hybrid Hope.” There will be a special prayer and anointing for all in attendance. Anointing with oil is symbolic of the conferring of God’s blessing and favor upon an individual.

Greater Grace Temple is located at 23500 W. Seven Mile Road in northwest Detroit, three blocks east of Telegraph Rd. The 6,000 plus member congregation has been one of the spiritual pillars of the Motor City since it was founded in 1927. For more information, visit www.greatergrace.org or call 313-543-6000.
