The Rev. Sherman Dunmore Sr., pastor of Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church will be the featured speaker today at Geneva’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. worship service.
The service will follow a march through downtown; that begins at 9:30 at the Public Safety Building on Exchange Street, the service is at the United Methodist Church. A fellowship dinner immediately follows the service.
The theme this year is “Monumental effort plus monumental sacrifice equals monumental dreams,” a reference to the recently dedicated Martin Luther King monument in Washington, D.C. In addition to Dunmore’s speech, the worship service will feature music by the MLK Memorial Choir and the announcement of the winners of the 2012 MLK Art and Poetry Contest.
The broadcast begins at 11am.
