Details:

LIFT EVERY VOICE AND SING UNTIL FREEDOM RINGS! Join volunteers, members and friends of The Perfecting Church and Sicklerville United Methodist Church as we join forces to lift our voices in song and our hands in service to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by gathering with our neighbors to answer, according to Dr. King,"Life's most persistent and urgent question, 'What are you doing for others?’"

 

The day-long celebration begins at Sicklerville United Methodist Church with a Volunteer Kick-Off where guests will have breakfast, preview Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s “I Have A Dream” speech and move into action inspired by a unifying address and song selection by our MLK Intergenerational Community Choir to move them to lift their voices and hands in service of others! Guests will then depart for one of the following community service projects throughout Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Philadelphia counties.
