Several free food distributions are planned for this summer and families from Flint and the surrounding area are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity.

This is a cause that I'm personally very excited about, and proud of as well. Holy Spirit Lutheran Church in Grand Blanc, in cooperation with the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, sponsors the monthly food distributions. This is the 16th year the Grand Blanc church has held food distributions in order to help those who be looking for a little extra help.


Proud to Serve Genesee County

Pastor Nathan Allen says the food distribution program is one of the ways the church helps serve the community.

“For those of us who are members of Holy Spirit Lutheran Church, these food distributions are one way we show love for our neighbors in need," Allen says. "These past few years have been particularly hard on many people in our community, so we see this as one way our church can put our faith into action and be a positive presence for Genesee County.”

A Nostalgic Look Back Inside the Infamous Auker Mansion of Grand Blanc

The big house with the large gates on Belsay Road in Grand Blanc, Michigan has been as mysterious as the man who built the massive 14,000+ square foot home that resembled more of a palace than a Midwest home. The late builder Eldon Auker was known for his creativity and flamboyance on some levels, his mansion reflected every bit of that. With its 20 foot ceilings, majestic staircase, and a 3000 square foot bedroom, the home was a showplace. Sold in 2020, it's hard to know if changes were made to the once amazing estate, but it's exciting to be able to take a little look back in time to what once was.
