Worship by the river for Labor Day

Fulton’s downtown gazebo will once again be the setting for a Labor Day worship service at 10:30 a.m. Sept. 1.

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 Rev. 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 Rev. 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 Rev. David Nethercott, pastor of First United Church of Fulton, also will assist 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 Oct. 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 those attending the service bring their own lawn chair.  In case of inclement weather, the service will take place at First United Church of Fulton, 33 S. Third St.

For further information, and for issues related to weather conditions on Sept. 1, contact the Rev. David Nethercott at the church at 592-2707, cellphone at 415-2408 or by email at prairieborn@aol.com.
