At 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 20, a diverse group of churches will be joining together to promote the hope of greater racial reconciliation as the nation remembers the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  The worship service will be offered in the historic chapel of First Presbyterian Church of Maumee, 200 East Broadway St.  Dr. K David Johnson, senior pastor of the Third Baptist Church in Toledo, will serve as this year’s guest preacher.

Remembering Dr. King’s recognition that “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends,” this worship service marks an important expression of partnership for Maumee Churches United.  Believing that a diverse partnership of churches and ministries more fully reflects the kingdom of God in the world, Maumee Churches United (MCU) exists to glorify Jesus Christ in Maumee, Ohio and the greater Toledo area.

An offering will be taken during the worship service that will benefit Agape Second Chance, a ministry serving a diversity of people in need living in the Spencer Township area.
