Labor Day Sunday Worship By The River

FULTON, NY – The importance of work as a gift from God and as an avenue of displaying God’s goodness will be the theme of the worship hour at Fulton’s downtown Gazebo on Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

Three congregations (Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, State Street United Methodist Church, and First United Church of Fulton) will gather to host the outdoor service which will include communion and a food offering for the Salvation Army Food Pantry.

Rev. David Nethercott, pastor of First United Church of Fulton, will deliver the message.

A combined choir, directed by Cindy MacDougall, will rehearse the anthem “One Wish” at 10 a.m. Rev. Joseph Kim pastor of State Street United Methodist Church will give primary leadership in the serving of communion. Rev. Richard Klafehn of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church will be leading services in another setting.

Each congregation is an active 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.).
