Christ Our Redeemer (COR) A.M.E. Church unites with the Orange County Human Relations Commission for the 4th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr., Interfaith Conference on Saturday, January 19 at 9 a.m., in the COR edifice at 45 Maxwell Street in Irvine.

‘Building the Beloved Community: Access Through Public Education’ will feature Orange County religious leaders, educators, community members and government representatives discussing educational challenges and opportunities and the faith community’s role in promoting safe schools.

“The Interfaith Conference is a follow-up to the listening session held at COR in December, which allowed residents to share stories of hate and prejudice that had gone unreported. There, it was realized that children are often the recipients of prejudice in the public school system,” said COR Pastor Mark E. Whitlock II.

“In the spirit of Dr. King, this year’s agenda focuses on addressing inequality and prejudice within the county by involving the interfaith community. The goal is to build common ground to achieve the ‘Beloved Community’ that Dr. King dreamed we would someday realize together.”

On Sunday, January 20, at 5 p.m., Pastor Mark E. Whitlock, Jr., and the COR congregation will host the Annual MLK Birthday Concert for Scholarships.  The special honoree is the Rev. Dr. Cecil L. “Chip” Murray. 

The public is invited to participate in both events.  For information, call (949) 955-0014 or visit
