Looking for an MLK Day Service?
Due to the energy and costs involved, our Social Justice Alliance won’t be able to continue hosting the Walnut Creek MLK Day Service we’ve hosted in past years.
Instead, we encourage you and your congregation to attend one of these regional services hosted by congregations of color, the NAACP, and our other partners around the county:
