MLK Weekend of Service 2022

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 15

Once again, Pastor Laurie will head up to the church tower to be locked in until we raise five 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!

Festival of the Flea
Saturday, January 15

As part of our Hunger Vigil day, we are celebrating the Festival of the Flea beginning at 9:00 a.m. It’s a flea market with a twist. Come over to the Green to find new treasures!

Worship and OneBlood Drive
Sunday, January 16

OneBlood Bus

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.

This morning, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. the Big Red OneBlood Bus will be here to receive your life-giving donation of blood for those in need. OneBlood is a not-for-profit community asset responsible tor providing safe, available, and affordable blood to their hospital partners and patients.

An Evening with Fred Guttenberg
Monday, January 17 at 6:30 p.m.

Books & Books will present an evening with Fred Guttenberg for the paperback publication of his book Find the Helpers: What 9/11 and Parkland Taught Me about Recovery, Purpose, and Hope (Mango, $18.95). Join us to discover Fred Guttenberg’s activist’s journey since his daughter Jaime’s death and how he has been able to get through the worst of times thanks to the kindness and compassion of others. This event will take place at Books & Books in Coral Gables.

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