Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. remains a powerful example of how God uses imperfect, yet chosen people to bring the values of His kingdom - equality, justice, peace and compassion - to life in our tumultuous world.
Join us Monday, January 19th (MLK Day) for a community event we are sponsoring with Soteria Christian Fellowship / CDC. We'll be honoring Dr. King's legacy with some readings from his speeches, music from blues legend, Mac Arnold, and an opportunity for folks in our community to share the impact of his civil rights legacy on them. We will also hear from Mrs. Alice Chesser, a civil rights worker who marched with Dr. King in Selma.
When: Monday, January 19 @ 6pm
Where: The parking lot next to Pace Jewelers at the corner of Pendleton and Irvine in the Village of West Greenville (across from Mac Arnold's / Asada).
