3rd Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration: Make Love Known.
“Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.” Martin Luther King Jr.
The Love Coalition invites you to join us for the 3rd annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. celebration honoring his message of love, hope and unity, January 20, 2019. The theme for this year is “Make Love Known!”
On Sunday, January 20th, join us at 5 pm for an art reception featuring artwork from students of Nehalem Elementary School, Fire Mountain School, Garibaldi Grade School as well as some homeschoolers. Lite refreshments will be served. At 6 pm, we will begin The Sound of Love featuring music and spoken word that illuminates the theme of how we can spread more love throughout the world, starting here on the North Oregon Coast. Performers include the Neah-Kah-Nie Choir, Fire Mountain School, Sedona Fire Band, LaNicia Williams, Gary Seelig, Brandon Tigner, Cat Freshwater, and LinMarie DiCianni. Both events will be held at Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church, 36050 10th St., Nehalem, OR and are free to the public.
The mission of The Love Coalition is to cultivate community where we can show up without labels, connecting to one another through the spirit of love, offering acceptance without judgment and acknowledging our differences in a healthy way where we can learn and grow from each other, all while having the freedom to be authentic without fear of bias.
