Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Service Day

MLK-Quote10Serve with us on MLK Day 2018! Contact us soon to register your group or as an individual.

Dr. 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 and serving together in our community.
