Childcare for children 4 and younger, breakfast and lunch will be provided at the church.

Sunday, January 14th at 11:00 a.m. - Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Table Fellowship - People died to give us the right to vote. The Voting Rights Act was passed to overcome barriers that prevented people from exercising their right to vote, yet more that 50 years later, voter suppression continues! Come learn why your vote matters and what happens when we don't vote.  Come even if you are ineligible to vote, to discuss your role in helping others register and get to the polls.
