Alabama Rural Ministry (ARM) has coordinated an MLK Weekend of Service to honor Dr. Martin Luther King in January 2018.
The excerpt below was taken from the ARM Website.
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.
Join us for a community-wide worship service and gospel concert on Sunday January 14 from 4p-6p at First United Methodist Church at 202 South Main Street in Tuskegee. This is 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.
