CELEBRATING THE LEGACY OF DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

Grace Church, College Hill, welcomed members and pastors from churches around College Hill for a festive ecumenical worship service in commemoration of the ministry and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Jan. 15. The church was about as full as it could hold. Bishop Todd O’Neil from the House of Joy Church led his choir in several moving hymns and the Grace Church Praise Dancers offered their hopes and commitment for the future envisioned by Dr. King. To conclude the service, the Rev. Damon Lynch, Jr. from New Jerusalem Baptist Church preached social justice with his accustomed energy and insight and the congregation responded with enthusiasm.
