The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend

MLK-Quote10Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the leader of the civil rights movement, a pastor, and one of our century’s greatest leaders spoke and lived a message of non-violence to overturn unjust laws. He often quoted the prophet Amos who once proclaimed, “let justice roll down like waters, and mercy like an ever flowing spring.” Dr. King continues to be an inspiration to so many today. It seems appropriate that we would celebrate his birthday weekend by sharing in Christ’s love with our brothers and sisters caught in  poverty.

COMMUNITY WORSHIP SERVICE

Join us for a community-wide worship service and gospel concert on Sunday January 15 from 4p-6p at First Methodist Church on 202 S. Main St. This is always a very special, inspiring time of praise, prayer, and testimony. You’ll also hear one of Dr. King’s famous sermons (re)presented by a local minister. A time of fellowship with light refreshments will be enjoyed following the service. The whole Tuskegee-Auburn-Opelika community is invited!
