Over Ten Faith Communities Unite for Nashville’s Multi-Faith Citywide MLK Service

Added: (Thu Jan 11 2018)

Pressbox (Press Release) - In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, more than ten faith leaders, communities and congregations are coming together for celebration in a joint service on Sunday, January 14, from 3-6pm.

It is not uncommon for pastors to work together. It is uncommon for various denominations to celebrate a service together.

Over ten Nashville congregations are planning on celebrating a worship service together to honor Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy. It is the annual MLK Day celebration service taking place at the Church of Scientology on Sunday, Jan 14th and Rev. Brian Fesler feels this is a historic way to help make Dr. King’s dream a reality. “With more than ten congregations coming together to worship as one, choirs joining each other in song, people of different denominations sitting side by side, and each faith leader participating, it’s a beautiful way to honor Dr. King’s legacy.”

This year, faith leaders and congregations are scheduled to represent Brooks Memorial United Methodist Church, Northside Church of Christ, Mount Lebanon Missionary Baptist Church, Caravan Church, City of Grace Church, Congregation Sherith Israel, Unity of Music City and more. Rev. Enoch Fuzz of Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church will deliver the sermon on “The Eyes of God.” Rev. David Shivers will present a rendition of the “I Have a Dream” speech.

“Dr. King stood for diversity and a unity among all people. We are celebrating that in the best way possible –actually coming together in one place and celebrating our differences and similarities,” says Rev. Fesler of the Church of Scientology.

The MLK Celebration service will be held Sunday, Jan 14th from 3-6pm and ending with a potluck at the Church of Scientology in Nashville. It is open to the public, and members of the media are welcome to attend. For more information or to RSVP, visit tnuhr.org.
