Tomorrow our nation celebrates Labor Day. Our nation’s first Labor Day took place in New York City in 1882. The Labor Unions wanted to show their trades to the public.
In 1894 Labor Day became a Federal Holiday. The original Labor Day celebrations consisted of street parades displaying the contribution of laborers in various industries. After the parades the communities had local festivals and amusements. Over the years politicians started making speeches advocating labor issues and workers’ rights.
Today we honor laborers at church. We honor the church volunteers. From the Nursery to the finance committee, Trinity is blessed with workers.
We have AWANA workers, youth workers, choir members, parking attendants, ushers and greeters; we are blessed with people who want to work!
Think about our media, sound, and kitchen crews, our Deacons and our Sunday School teachers and those who serves in outreach like the nursing home ministry and prayer teams, and many others. It is all a labor of love.
We are anticipating some wonderful reports from our missionaries during the month of September. Today we will hear from Debra Woods with Mountain Area Pregnancy Service and Coach Danny Wilkins with Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Please make these laborers feel welcome in our service.
Thank you for being faithful! Thank you for serving! Thank you for giving! Thank you for praying!
