MLK Day Peace Service and March

  • New Hope Temple Baptist (map)

From the NW Division police chaplains:

The service will take place at New Hope Temple Baptist Church, 312 W. Manheim St. (Pulaski & Manheim) with people arriving at 10am for a 10:30am start. It will run approximately 30 minutes. A few elected officials and other community leaders will offer brief remarks.

Participants will then join in a prayer march to Wayne Junction, 4481 Wayne Ave. This “hot spot” location borders the 14th, 35th and 39th districts. According to Mapquest it is .8 miles from the church building to the location. Transportation for those unable to walk the entire distance is being arranged.

I hope that many of you will attend and that you will encourage others to do so. Inasmuch as the event is intended to foster unity and peace in the city it is worth the effort to make the effort of a short trip. We also don’t want an MLK event to be as segregated as many of our church services are.
