  • Join your friends from the six UCC San Diego Partnership Churches for a service project inspired by the legacy and life of the great American prophet, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Hosted at Kensington Community Church (4773 Marlborough Drive), we will gather in the social hall from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. We will begin with prayer, then move onto a viewing and discussion of a lesser-known speech that Dr. King gave to middle school students known as the “The Blueprint Speech.” We will then share in a COVID-safe communion before then working side-by-side on a TBD service project aimed at making an impact and difference in our community. For more information, please contact Rev. Darryl Kistler at darryl@kensingtonucc.com or 619-284-1129, ext. 305.
