The event is part of UCM’s 2016 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration, combining the traditional ecumenical worship service and the gospel concert that have long been a part of the combined campus and community event.
The Rev. Jim Tomlonson of the Warrensburg Church of the Brethren will serve as master of ceremonies, with the Rev. Morris Collins of the Jesus Saves Pentecostal Church of God as the featured speaker. Music will be provided by the Jesus Saves Pentecostal Church of God Sanctuary Choir and UCM’s ABC Gospel Choir.
Special music will be presented by soloists Shirley Briscoe of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church and Corey Watson of the Harvest Fellowship Church.
The Warrensburg Ministerial Association will also present its MLK Scholarship. Established in 2011 by the Warrensburg Ministerial Association, the scholarship is presented to a graduating Warrensburg High School senior.
The event is free and the public is invited to attend.
