Those three congregations are: Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, State Street United Methodist Church, and First United Church of Fulton.

Rev. David Nethercott from First United Church of Fulton will deliver the message which will focus on the importance of work as a gift from God and an avenue of displaying God’s goodness.

A combined choir led by Cindy MacDougall will bring the anthem.

Service leadership will be shared among church members and Rev. Joseph Kim of State Street United Methodist, and Rev. David Nethercott of First United Church.

Rev. Richard Klafehn of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church will be leading services in another setting.

This is the ninth year for Labor Day weekend Gazebo Worship.

It was begun in 2003 by State Street United Methodist Church.

First United Church began to take part in 2007.

Prince of Peace Lutheran Church will take part for the second time.

Each congregation is a member of The Greater Fulton Area Council of Christian Churches, which hosts a number of shared events each year including the 26th annual CROP Walk scheduled for Oct. 14.

Coffee, cookies, and cold drinks will be served following the service.

Members of the three hosting congregations are asked to bring cookies to share.

It is recommended that you bring your own lawn chair.

In case of inclement weather, the service will take place at an alternative site (First United Church of Fulton, 33 S. Third St., Fulton).
