MLK Day of Service

January 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Make MLK Day a day on, not a day off!

Twenty-five years ago our nation decided to create a day of service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the principles for which he stood. Dr. King stated, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is ‘What are you doing for others?’” We know that Dr. King was a pastor who spent his life serving people and fighting for justice. Jesus was the perfect example of service and described himself in Mark 10:45, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” In his letter to the Galatians, Paul says, “Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people. (6:10)” These are three great reasons to serve someone else!

On January 20, we encourage your family to look around your neighborhood for a place or way to serve. Or join us. Partnering with Dresher Hill Health and Rehab Center we will make no-sew/tie blankets and encouraging cards for some of their residents who rarely receive visitors. After we make these items, we invite you to join us in taking them to the residents.

 

Please sign up here so we can supply enough materials.
