Each Year MLKFDL Brings Together People from all walks of life to celebrate in a citywide church service, remembering that Dr. King was not only a Civil Rights Icon, but a Man of God!
This interdenominational citywide (Eccumenical) Service is one of the signature events of the celebration, and is designed to promote “oneness” among people of all faiths. The theme for the 2018 celebration is (was) “MLK-FDL Freedom Diversity Love in Fond Du Lac City and County”.
Further, we are committed to support all MLK events locally and around the country by acknowledging the power of our Nation coming together on this day and keeping it going throughout the year.
After MLK DAY (The Federal Holiday honoring his birthday), another significant day in history — April 4. On April 4, 1968, civil rights leader and pastor; The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 39, was shot and killed on a balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tenn.
Fashioned after the SCLC (Southern Christian Leadership Conference) where Rev. King was one of the founders and first president. A day lead by Ecumenical Christian Leadership and a select group of non-christian religious leaders. This, for relevant talks, workshops, seminars, training and solutions surrounding the murder of Rev. King and the dangerous environment we live in today.

Bread Of Life Church under the Leadership of Bishop Dr. H.D. Haywood, Sr. and his wife Pastor Beverly A. Haywood are the lead officials and community servants. The church and it's leaders spearhead the service each year.
SPECIAL NOTE: We at Bread Of Life Church were not the original founders and sponsors of the Rev. Dr. MLK, Jr. Ecumenical Citywide Church Service. Prior to 2006, we believe that there was a collaboration between FAMA (Fond du Lac Area Ministerial Association) and Marian College which sponsored the service on Sunday night (the day before the Federal Holiday) and the College's Annual MLK Prayer Breakfast. Actual historical account are pending.
