MLK Weekend of Service

In honor of MLK’s dream of building Beloved Community, we will be focusing the entire weekend on doing just that and then sharing our experiences. On Saturday we’ll be engaged in a variety of service projects and then on Sunday we’ll come together for a quick ingathering service to be followed by a congregational brunch where members are encouraged to reflect on what it means to be a community of service.
