New Bethel A.M.E. Zion Church Honors Martin Luther King, Jr. And The President’s Inauguration
 Monday, January 21, 2013 was a very special day. It was a day that celebrated both Martin Luther King, Jr. and the second inauguration of President Barack Obama. The President took his oath of office as he placed his hand on not one, but two Bibles. One was Abraham Lincoln's Bible and the other that of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It was very symbolic of a dream realized. The inauguration coincided with the celebration of MLK, Jr. Day and it proved to be a very special one.
