On Monday January 20, 2014 at 7:00 PM Macedonia Baptist Church of Newtown in conjunction with the Newtown Ministerium will host its annual Martin Luther King, Jr. program.  This year's theme is Unfinished Business.  The keynote speaker will be Mr. Norval D. Reece, President of Reese Communications and a member of Newtown Friends Meeting.  Mr. Reece participated in the civil rights movement march, led by Dr King; from Selma to Montgomery Alabama.  The program will also include a discussion on the theme.  It will be facilitated by Ms. Barbara Simmons, Executive Director of the Peace Center in Langhorne, PA.  Music will be provided by Sharim v'Sharot Community Choir; People of Song and the Macedonia Mass Choir.

In keeping with Dr. King's legacy of service, each year there is a community service project associated with the celebration.  This year's project is a Food Drive. Food collected will be donated to Saint Luke Episcopal Church's Food Pantry. The public is invited to bring non-perishable food items to the church between the hours of 6:00 Pm and 7:00 Pm and stay for the program in commemoration of Dr. King.

The church is located at 218 North State Street in Newtown, PA 18940.  Reverend Lillian Gail Moore is the Pastor.
