January 18 Sunday Service
Our service at 11am this Sunday, January 18, will celebrate the ministry of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Chancel Choir, directed by Lee Wright, will sing "Down in the River to Pray" and other inspired anthems.
Our theme is Dr. King's prophetic insight that "For some strange reason I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be.... This is the way God's universe is made. This is the way it is structured."
Everyone is invited.
