MLK Day of Service 2022

----NOTE: CHECK FOR DETAILS FOR RESCHEDULED OR SUPPLEMENTAL ACTIVITIES----

This MLK Day (January 17, 2022), the community of churches along N. Charles St. are coming together once again to serve our community, honoring the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. This is a great way for us learn about local mission programs, meet new people, and be the presence of Christ in someone else's life.

We are offering a combination of in-person and at-home activities this year. Masks will be required at all in-person events, many of which will be held outside. Additional details will be added over the next few weeks.


 

----POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER----

CLEAN UP YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD

At Home

Any Time!

Take a walk with a purpose: cleaning up trash in your neighborhood.  Many of us have taken to walking to get out, exercise and get some fresh air.  Why not combine your walk with a little clean up?  Encourage your family to join you or a neighbor or two to tackle a socially distanced stretch of the street or alley.  Put the bags out with your regular trash.  That was easy and don’t you feel better? 

**Trash pickers will not be available on Monday morning due to weather. Event may be rescheduled. Check your church communications**

If a trashpicker would help save you from bending over to pick up the trash, University Baptist Church will have several to lend out.  Swing by their parking lot at 3501 N Charles Street and get one between 9:30 and 10:30.  You can return them 3:00-4:00.

 



JUST MERCY MOVIE DISCUSSION

Zoom Link Will be Distributed to registrants

7-8pm

Contact: TBA

 

Please come to the movie discussion having viewed Just Mercy, which is available on several popular streaming platforms. The discussion will be facilitated by Rev Dr Isaac Mwase. Participants will talk about the film and social issues relating to the American criminal justice system.

 

Synopsis (from https://justmercy.eji.org/):

Just Mercy takes us inside America’s broken criminal justice system and compels us to confront inequality and injustice.

Based on the bestselling book, the Just Mercy movie presents the unforgettable story of Bryan Stevenson (Michael B. Jordan) and the case of Walter McMillian (Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx), who was convicted and sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit.
