MLK Day of Service 2019

Monday, January 21, 2019 - 9:00am

“Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve…. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” - Martin Luther King Jr. 

Join us as we give back to our community in honor of Martin Luther King Jr., whose life exemplified service to others. Stop by our Welcome Center to select an Act of Kindness card and/or a donation item for any of the opportunities below:

birthday boxes

Mon., Jan 21
Many of the same families who face hunger insecurity also lack the resources to give their children a birthday party. Put a smile on a child's face by donating supplies such as cake mix and party decorations that our Youth Department will pack into wrapped boxes to be distributed by Dorcas Ministries.
