MLK Day of Service

MLK Day of Service – Mon, January 20, 2020

A generous person will be enriched, and one who gives water will get water. (Prov. 11:25)

Join with our parish community as we spend the day in service on Monday, January 20, 2020.  Martin Luther King Jr. stated that one of life’s most persistent and urgent questions is what are you doing for others?  We will have a variety of opportunities for all ages to serve others.

Please stop by the church with donations (in the library) starting Sunday, January 12th, AND between 10-2 pm on MLK Day, bring your family or friends and help sort, and deliver items to various organizations. At 2 pm, we will be delivering items to the following organizations: Book Harvest, Orange County Animal Shelter, Refugee Support Center, UNC Horizons. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DELIVER ITEMS at 2 PM PLEASE EMAIL Meg Flournoy: megff18@gmail.com.
