Join the Southeastern Synod as we take a Civil Rights Pilgrimage, including stops in Atlanta, Montgomery, Selma, and Birmingham.

We will begin our Pilgrimage at 9 am at St John's Lutheran Church in Atlanta and take a bus to the National Center for Civil and Human Rights. We will then hop back on the bus, stop briefly at the MLK National Historic Park, then eat lunch while driving to the Legacy Museum in Montgomery, Alabama.  After spending time at the Legacy Museum and Memorial, we will board the bus to Selma, AL, to cross the Edmund Pettus Bridge.  We will then head to Birmingham for a late dinner and an overnight stay.

On Sunday, we will worship with and have lunch with Shades Valley Lutheran Church. Before returning to Atlanta, we will stop at the 16th Street Baptist Church and Kelly Ingram Park.  We anticipate returning to St. John's in Atlanta around 4 pm. 

To learn more about the sites we will visit, look for the "Quick Links" section on this page.

The $200 cost of the pilgrimage includes transportation, meals, lodging, and entrance to the museums.  The fee must be paid for at the time of registration.  The pilgrimage is limited to 54 people.
