ATLANTA (AP) -- Hundreds of people have filled Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta to remember and reflect on the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., who preached at the church.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal was one of the speakers at the service, which featured prayers, music and speeches. The Republican governor said he he is committed to finding an appropriate way to honor King at the Georgia Capitol, but he didn't go into specifics.

Across the country, people are honoring King with parades, marches and service projects.

King was born Jan. 15, 1929, and the federal holiday is the third Monday in January.
