mlk-jrJoin us for an All Ages service engaging us with the lessons we can learn from the prophetic voice of Martin Luther King Jr. and how we can all live our way into the Beloved Community.

trebleclefAs part of our celebration of the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., the sanctuary choir, soloists and jazz instrumentalists (Ben Green, string bass; Rip Jackson, piano; Chris Morse, tenor saxophone; Jay Sager, percussion) will sing and play uplifting jazz and gospel music. The sanctuary choir will sing Mark Hayes’ joyful gospel arrangement of “This Little Light of Mine” and Andre Thomas’ serene “I Dream a World.” Elizabeth Walsh, joined by the jazz musicians, will sing George Weiss and Bob Thiele’s iconic “What a Wonderful World.” For the centering music and postlude, the jazz musicians (piano, string bass, drums and sax) will play “God Bless the Child” and Van Morrison’s energetic “Moondance.”
