MLK, Jr., Epistles, and Prophets
April 4 at 4:00 p.m.
April 12, 19 & 26 at 5:30 p.m.

On Wednesday, April 4, 4:00 p.m., we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., with a contemplative Eucharist. That’s a fancy way of saying we will remember his untimely death with a worship service in which we reflect on his life cut short, and his work we carry on. Click here for details.  

Then, on Thursday April 12, 19, and 26, 5:30 to 7:15 p.m., we will have a simple soup and salad supper followed by a video and discussion. Again, click here for details.

Following the Eucharist at SsAM, please consider attending the following event a few blocks away:

April 4 | 5:30 to 8:00 p.m.
Delaware History Historical Society | Copeland Room
