MLK Weekend of Service 2024

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. lived his life serving others. Following his example, we invite you to serve on this weekend in several ways:

Hunger Vigil
Saturday, January 13

Items we need most for our food pantry:

Flip-top lids are preferred!

Canned Meat
Peanut Butter
Canned Fruit/Vegetables
Canned Beans
Canned Fish
Pasta
Rice (smaller bags)

Once again, Pastor Laurie will head up to the church tower to be locked in until we raise six tons of food for the hungry of south Florida.

Food donations (and the heavier the better) are most encouraged; however monetary donations will also be gratefully accepted. $1.00 equals one pound of food.

Drop off your food donations anytime during the day. You can also give financially online below. Pastor Laurie will appreciate getting down from the tower in time for Sunday morning worship!

Worship
Sunday, January 14

We gather on this Martin Luther King, Jr. Remembrance Sunday to recommit ourselves to the principals and dreams of Dr. King and to the work that still remains as we strive for a more just society.

Dr. King once said: “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”
