United in Love: Communion and Faith Walk - Aug 12, 2pm

Led by Pastor Julie and Pastor Darryl Roberts
August 12 marks the one-year anniversary of the white supremacists’ rally in Charlottesville. This Sunday (8/12) Pastor Julie and Pastor Darryl Roberts from the historic Nineteenth Street Baptist Church will co-lead a brief communion service at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial at 2pm. Our brothers and sisters of NSBC have invited our church to join them for a snack lunch at their church (4606 16th St NW) from 12:45-1:30pm, then ride with them on their church busses to the MLK Memorial. Deacons from both churches will serve the bread and cup to all want to participate—church folk and tourists alike. (Please note: the communion service will be 2.5 miles from the white supremacist/neo-Nazi rally taking place in Lafayette Square, near the White House.)
