Jazz Service in Honor of Martin Luther King

On Sunday, January 17 at 10 am, Jazz artists will collaborate with members of the Broad Bay Congregational United Church of Christ with a service of music and readings in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.
Mike Whitehead, trumpet, Tom Luther, piano, Jason Dean, percussion, and Danji Buck-Moore, organ will play. Members of the Broad Bay Church have chosen a series of readings that reflect the commitment to justice and peace which was reflected in the life and ministry of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  After each reading, the musicians will offer a musical response.  The congregation will sing music that came out of the African American tradition.  Broad Bay Church readers include Marcus Russano, Caroline Bond, Jim Gussen, Ralph Moore, Jeff Belcher and Ted Smith. Readings will include works of Martin Luther King Jr. as well as other voices of justice and peace.

In recognition that work that Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King gave his life doing is far from complete, the Broad Bay Church offers this service as a place to remember and rededicate ourselves to the work of reconciliation and justice.  Broad Bay Congregational United Church of Christ is located at 941 Main Street, Waldoboro and is an open and affirming congregation. “No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.” Rev. Nancy Duncan, Pastor. For more information, call 832-6898 or waldoucc@midcoast.com
