Martin Luther King’s legacy honored
Families worshiping at an Oak Harbor church have been rehearsing in preparation for a celebration honoring the nation’s most famous civil rights leader.
Mission Ministry Outreach, which is located on Goldie Road in Oak Harbor, is honoring Martin Luther King Jr. Sunday with a celebration scheduled to start at 3 p.m.
Pastor Fannie Dean said the theme of Sunday’s celebration is “let us move on,” and it will include lots of singing, dancing, eating, laughing, joy and peace.
Jessica Vester, a 12-year -old middle school student, will read one of King’s sermons titled “Love Your Enemies.”
“We should still treat them as everybody else,” Vester said during a rehearsal Thursday.
More than a dozen people spent their Thursday evening rehearsing and practicing songs and dances in preparation of the celebration.
Mission Ministry Outreach is located at 1751 Goldie Road D1, in Oak Harbor. For more information, go to www.fanniedean.com
