LEARNING on MLK Day 

The day will kick off with exciting, intergenerational and interactive learning for all: Children’s Activities will feature learning about the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for grades K-5 and a Fearless Dialogue for youth (middle and high school) and adults.

What is a Fearless Dialogue?

Fearless Dialogues creates unique spaces for hard, heartfelt conversations between unlikely partners that see gifts in people, hear values in stories, and work toward transformation and change in self and other.  In brief, Fearless Dialogues retrains the eyes and ears of people to see gifts instead of stereotypes, and to hear value in the storied lives of others.  From this shared space of meaning, where participants see and hear worth in others, the pump is primed for hard conversations, and for cultivating hope that leads to sustainable change.

Fearless Dialogues comes to the 2019 Lutheran MLK Day of Service through the generous sponsorship of Lutheran Services of Georgia, ELCA Southeastern Synod Advocacy, Lutheran Church of the Redeemer/Atlanta, Living Grace Lutheran Church/Tucker, St. John’s Lutheran Church/Atlanta, Emmanuel Lutheran Church/Atlanta, and the ELCA Southeastern Synod.

 

ADVOCACY on MLK Day

The ELCA Southeastern Synod Advocacy Team will coordinate advocacy opportunities: An advocacy room will be open during the second half of the event so volunteers can learn about policies and pending legislation that impact vulnerable populations like refugees and migrants and children and families living in poverty and write letters to elected officials

 

SERVICE on MLK Day

Volunteers will have the opportunity to assist with 3 different service projects and to visit the advocacy room during the second half of the event. 

  • Select your first choice project by selecting one first choice project ticket per volunteer during online registration from the service projects listed that benefit the children, families and adults served by LSG.
  • There will be additional service projects hosted by congregations to benefit other local outreach ministries/organizations supported by those congregations.
  • Each volunteer will be assigned to their first choice project and 2 additional service projects.
  • During the Service and Advocacy time, volunteers will rotate between their 3 assigned service projects and a “free” slot to visit the Advocacy Room and booths to learn more about opportunities to engage with LSG throughout the year.


We Look Forward to Seeing and Serving with YOU on MLK Day!
