FULTON, NY – Fulton’s downtown Gazebo will once again be the setting for worship on Labor Day Sunday September 1 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.
The Reverend Anne Wichelns, new to the shared pastorate of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, will bring the message.
A combined choir, directed by Cindy MacDougall, will rehearse the anthem at 10 a.m.
The Reverend Marion M. Moore-Colgan, pastor of State Street United Methodist Church, will give primary leadership in the serving of communion.
Communion is open to all who confess Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
The Reverend David Nethercott, pastor of First United Church of Fulton, will also be assisting in the leadership of the service.
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 27th annual Fulton Crop Walk scheduled for October 6.
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.
