Rejected Stone Christian Fellowship (RSCF) will host their 2nd Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Service and Man of the Year Award Breakfast.

According to Pastor Walter Davis, the program takes place on Saturday, Jan. 16, at 10 a.m., in an outdoor, tented area in the church’s parking lot located at 4700 Avalon Blvd., in Los Angeles. The event commemorates the birthday of Dr. King as well as recognizes outstanding contributors to the local community and the recipient of the RSCF youth scholarship.

“We will present our 2021 Service and Man of the Year Award to William ‘Bill’ Foster, local community leader, singer, song writer, business owner, addiction recovery advocate and entrepreneur for his many devoted years of leadership and significant contributions,” said Davis. Also, the Rev. Dr. Cecil “Chip” Murray will participate as an invited special guest.

The breakfast also serves as a fundraiser for RSCF’s youth scholarship, added Davis, who has a long history of supporting young people in his church and the community. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Davis and the Rejected Stone congregation sponsored 30-to-50 young people and guardians on 13 annual youth education trips to instructional and cultural destinations.

“Our church is blessed to be able to expose our youth to colleges and universities. In fact, the majority of RSCF high school graduates continue their education at institutions of higher learning, so we plan to continue these types of trips when appropriate,” Davis said.

The ticket donation is $20 for the 2nd Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Service and Man of the Year Award Breakfast. To learn more, call Rejected Stone Christian Fellowship at (323) 235-4319.
