Celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at 7 p.m. tonight with a performance of the Junaluska Gospel Choir and the 19th annual Unity Service at Mabel United Methodist Church in Zionville.
The service will focus on bringing people together in religious faith and world peace in honor of King’s contributions to the world.
Five community members will offer prayers of peace: from the Hindu tradition, Christine and Dinesh Dave; from the Jewish table, Carol Gross; from the Unitarian Church, Ian LeClaire; from the scholars, Historian Diane Terry and from the Baha’i, Betty Wells.
Choir Director Danny Whittington will lead the Junaluska Gospel Choir of the Boone Mennonite Brethren Church.
Coffee and dessert will follow the service. For more information, call Mabel church member Mary Sue Morgan at 828-297-3568.
