ATKINSON —Atkinson Congregational Church is hosting the Rockingham Area Interfaith Clergy Celebration in honor of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. on Mon., January 20, from 7:00-8:00 p.m.
“Dr. King denounced the evils of racism and poverty while calling for a revolution of values rooted in nonviolence,” said Pastor Jim Thomas of Atkinson Congregational Church. “We’re honored to host a celebration that includes clergy of different faiths from our surrounding area. All are welcome to attend this service on Martin Luther King Jr. Civil Rights Day, as we reaffirm Dr. King’s messages that continue to resonate today.”
Atkinson Congregational Church, located at 101 Main Street in Atkinson, has been welcoming all people since 1772, when Stephen Peabody, brother-in-law to John Adams, became the church’s first pastor. Today, Jim Thomas serves as its pastor and spiritual leader. Affectionately known as the “Light on the Hill,” the church offers a wide range of programs, including music, Bible studies, social opportunities, services to the local community, and more. Wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. For more information on the class, contact atkinsoncc.org or call 603-362-5519.
