Join us for the 9th Annual JONAH Prayer Breakfast on Saturday, January 18, 2014, from 9 - 11 a.m. at First Congregational Church, 145 Capital Ave., NE, Battle Creek, Michigan. (Map)

This event provides an important interfaith, multicultural opportunity to honor the life and work of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and to bring the community together to celebrate our common values and goals. As we begin 2014 in prayer, we seek to rededicate ourselves to overcoming the challenges of changing systems and structures that perpetuate unequal treatment and disparities among members of our human family.

Our keynote speaker for this special event, The Rev. Charles E. Williams II, is Pastor of the King Solomon Missionary Baptist Church, Detroit, Michigan; President of the National Action Network Michigan; and Former Chairman of the Board of Metropolitan Organizing Strategy Enabling Strength (MOSES).

Tickets for this event are just $15 each ($20 at the door) and include a hot breakfast buffet. Seating at the JONAH Prayer Breakfast is limited, so purchase your tickets early!
