 MLK Not-a-Marathon Walk 10:00 a.m.
For all our marathoners (walkers and runners) who miss their half and full marathons this Sunday, join Pr. Liebster in a 4-6 mile walk from Christ the King Church to and along the Braes Bayou and back. We will aim for a 6 mile roundtrip but individuals/a subgroup may choose an earlier turn around point along the bayou. Come prepared with masks, hydration, and energy for the walk! An rsvp to ctk@ctkelc.org would be helpful so we know how many signs to make to pin to your jacket and to ensure a smooth meet-up.

The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on January 18 is the 26th anniversary of the day of service that celebrates the Civil Rights leader’s life and legacy. Observed each year on the third Monday in January as “a day on, not a day off,” MLK Jr. Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities. This year we will participate with a food drive to benefit our local food pantry at Christian Community Service Center. We will also collect toilet paper for SEARCH Homeless Services and pet food for Meals on Wheels AniMeals program through Interfaith Ministries of Greater Houston.
