You are invited to celebrate the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday by participating in the Lutheran MLK Day of Service on Monday, January 21, 2019 in the Metro Atlanta area. Children, youth and adults will gather at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Peachtree Corners for a morning of service, learning, and advocacy.
The day will kick off with exciting, intergenerational and interactive learning for all: Children’s Activities will feature learning about the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for grades K-5 and a Fearless Dialogue for youth (middle and high school) and adults. Child care available for children 4 and under. Click here for more about Fearless Dialogue.
An advocacy room will be open during the second half of the event so volunteers can learn about policies and pending legislation that impact vulnerable populations like refugees and migrants and children and families living in poverty and write letters to elected officials.
