On Sunday, Jan. 19, 11:00 a.m., two local churches will hold services to honor Martin Luther King, Jr.
From Rev. Adriene Thorne at First Presbyterian Church of Brooklyn:
This Sunday will be a very special one in the life of our community of faith. We are celebrating the life and witness of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in word, song, dance and jazz. We received a grant from the NY Presbytery to bring people together around two things we all love – jazz and justice. Make plans to celebrate #mlkday2020 with us. There will be amazing music from our gospel choir (ranked one of the top-10 in NYC) and a 16-piece jazz big band. It doesn’t get any sweeter than this – jazz, gospel and Jesus! Please bring a friend. Please bring food or drink to share at fellowship hour. See you Sunday!
There will also be a Musical Interfaith Service at Grace Church in conjunction with Brooklyn Heights Synagogue. Rabbi Serge Lippe will deliver a sermon at the service, along with Rev. Dr. Allen F. Robinson.
