In this National Historic Landmark, see the modest pulpit where Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. first preached his message of hope and brotherhood. This church was also a center point of the Montgomery bus boycott. A large mural in the church depicts King’s civil rights crusade from Montgomery to Memphis.
We are currently not holding tours due to COVID 19.
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Situation
Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
God is Great and Greatly be Praised! We pray that you are blessed, in good health, and in great spirits. Even though we have not physically been together, I encourage you to stay connected as a church family by joining both the Prayer line each morning at 7:00 AM EST and Bible Study on Wednesdays at noon by dialing 1-712-775-7031 and use access code #691-580-052. Don’t forget, a family that prays together stays together. The same number can be used to dial in for Sunday School at 9:30 AM and our Sunday Morning Worship Service at 10:00 AM each Sunday. The Worship Service will also be streamed live on Facebook.
We have been blessed to not have been directly impacted by loss of the life of a member of this church to COVID – 19. Therefore, we must remain vigilant in our efforts to stay safe and as healthy as possible by continuing to remain closed for gatherings such as worship service, Sunday school. Bible study, tourism, and in person meetings that will promote large gatherings that do not or cannot adhere to CDC Guidelines.
We have learned more and more about COVID-19 over the last few months including the fact that this pandemic is still alive and we cannot let our guard down. However, it is time to work on a plan to return to some level of normalcy. In consultation with Dr. John Jernigan and Dr. Brian Gary, we’ve established a COVID 19 Taskforce to ensure a safe return.
