From March 15 through April 30, Grace Emmanuel Baptist Church led by Dr. Rabon L. Turner, raised over $100,000 to eliminate a significant amount of medical debt in Genesee County. Through its Grace on Display campaign, church members were encouraged to combine their donations with RIP Medical, a charitable partner, to reduce a significant portion of the county’s unpaid medical debt.
“We truly appreciate the support of our members and friends in contributing greatly to benefit the uninsured and underinsured of Genesee County,” Turner said. “By partnering with RIP Medical, GEBC’s donation has been multiplied in a significant way to help alleviate medical debt for many uninsured and underinsured in our communities. Grace on Display is an outpouring of the work and sacrifices we make every day as Christians to help our neighbors especially during their time of greatest need. It’s truly a powerful demonstration of what we can do when we all work together.”
Grace Emmanuel Baptist Church, which was organized by Rev. Lindell Brady, held its first service on May 15, 1966. GEBC currently has 731 members and 50 active auxiliaries. GEBC cultivates of culture of God’s love through providing spiritual leadership and resources to help strengthen communities through Christian service.
RIP Medical uses donors’ funds to eliminate medical debt from the uninsured and underinsured. Individuals, families and veterans across the nation have benefited from its efforts.
