“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

2019 Martin Luther King, Jr. Worship Service
11 am Monday, January 21
Every year on the wintry Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a fire is kindled on High Point University’s campus. The Hayworth Chapel hosts a Martin Luther King, Jr. Service to honor the life and work of the late social activist and preacher. The service hosts a noted speaker, Genesis Gospel Choir, and is paired with community service projects throughout the day that are in the spirit of the “Beloved Kingdom” for which King strove.
The 2019 service will be at 11 am, January 21st in Hayworth Chapel. We are excited to have Rev. Dr. Otis Moss III as your keynote preacher. Dr. Moss, Senior Pastor at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, was recently recognized by Baylor University as one of the 12 Most Effective Preachers in the English- Speaking World.
