Pan Methodist Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration
December 19, 2017
“Faith Communities in the Midst of the Dream”
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” These are the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, the civil rights leader and drum major for justice. The third Monday in January is set aside as a national Holiday to remember Dr. King’s life and ministry.
Area United Methodist, African Methodist Episcopal, Christian Methodist Episcopal, and African Methodist Episcopal Zion Churches have come together to recognize the work of Dr. King and to plot a course of reconciliation and healing for our community.
The Pan Methodist Ecumenical Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration will be held on Monday, January 15, 2018. The schedule for the day includes registration and brunch at 11:00 A.M., adult workshops and a youth forum starting at 12 Noon, a re-enactment of a civil rights march at 1:15 P.M. and worship service starting at 1:30 P.M. Children and youth are encouraged to participate in the poster and essay contest, churches are invited to nominate a person for the 2018 Civil Rights Award, and attendees are asked to bring a seasonal wrap (coat, gloves, scarves, etc.) for our “Assist A Soul” ministry. Please see the flyer for details. For more information contact Jan Brown-Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Therefore, in faith, let us commend ourselves and our work for justice to the goodness of almighty God. (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Prayer from The United Methodist Church Book of Worship#435)
