For the third consecutive year, the members of Rejected Stone Christian Fellowship will host the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Service and Person of the Year Award Breakfast on Saturday, January 15, at 9:30 a.m.

According to Pastor Walter Davis, the event salutes the birthday of the Rev. Dr. King and recognizes outstanding community members. The program will be held outdoors in a tented area on the church’s parking lot located at 4700 Avalon Blvd., in Los Angeles.

“Marie White-Fuqua and her sons, Ronald White and Ralph White will be honored with the 2022 Service and Person of the Year Award in recognition of their many years of contributions to the community,” said the pastor. “Mrs. White served physical and spiritual food to those in need, for decades, at her home church and her sons are also very active in the Anonymous Recovery community,” noted Pastor Davis.

Also, the breakfast also serves as a fundraiser for two RSCF ministries – the annual youth educational trip and the Goshen, Kenya International Orphanage in Africa that the church supports with monthly donations. Proceeds from the breakfast will be distributed equally between the two programs.

Explaining the importance of the outreach program, Pastor Davis said, “Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, our congregation sponsored 30-to-50 young people and guardians on 13 annual youth education trips to instructional and cultural destinations across America and Mexico.

“If the pandemic subsides, we will resume in 2022 by traveling to Denver, Colorado. We consider it a great blessing to introduce our youth to colleges and universities and life beyond Los Angeles,” he added.

The public is invited to attend the 3rd Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Service and Person of the Year Award Breakfast. The ticket donation is $25.
