Labor Day

Labor Day is a legal holiday celebration on the first Monday in September. This holiday is celebrated in the United States, Puerto Rico, The Canal Zone, and in the Virgin Islands.

For most of us, Labor Day means the end of summer.  It may also mean a day off work since Labor Day in its beginning was a day to honor working men and women.

Tuesday, September 5, 1882, was celebrated as the first Labor Day holiday in New York City.  In 1884, the first Monday in September was selected as the official holiday and the Central Labor Union urged other cities to honor their labor force.

As part of our Labor Day weekend we will have no 5 PM church tonight and close the church office.

As Bible Believers, we make up God’s labor force.  We, the redeemed, are the hands and feet of the Gospel of God. We are to be salt and light to this generation.  We labor each day for our Lord.  We tell the good news everywhere we go.  We are to never take a holiday or a vacation from being faithful to our Lord!

I want to express my appreciation for your love and prayers these past few weeks. You are a blessing in my life!

You are loved,

Pastor Ralph
