Martin Luther King Day Ideas for Your Church Website

MLK Jr. Day is almost here–is your church website ready? Here are some ideas to get you started.

  1. Acknowledge the day with links on your home page to MLK documents & audio files and the King Center (note: audio automatically kicks in); ResourceShelf has a thorough list.
  2. Run a provocative poll, such as When will the USA reach full racial equality? Choices could be:
    – We’re pretty much already there.
    – In another generation.
    – In 50 years.
    – In 100 years.
    – Probably never.
  3. Highlight your pastor’s previous homilies/sermons related to Martin Luther King, Jr. or civil rights. At my parish, we’re highlighting “Hear and Heed the Call,” “I Will Not Be Quiet” and “No Limits to Equality.”
  4. Recap or link to any parish and local events commemorating the holiday.

Make it a day on, not a day off, and let us know what you did.
