At Broad Bay Congregational United Church of Christ, 941 Main St., jazz artists will collaborate with members of the church in a service of music and readings in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Sunday, Jan. 17, at 10 a.m.

Mike Whitehead, trumpet, Tom Luther, piano, Jason Dean, percussion and Danji Buck-Moore, organ, will play. Members of the church have chosen a series of readings that reflect the commitment to justice and peace which was embodied in the life and ministry of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. After each reading, the musicians will offer a musical response. The congregation will sing music that comes out of the African-American tradition. Readers include Marcus Russano, Caroline Bond, Jim Gussen, Ralph Moore, Jeff Belcher and Ted Smith. Readings will include works by King, as well as other voices of justice and peace.

In recognition that the work that King gave his life doing is far from complete, the Broad Bay Church offers this service as a place to remember and rededicate ourselves to the work of reconciliation and justice. All are welcome to this service.
