Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Monday, January 17, 2022.

The Church Office will be closed to honor the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

“I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”
