Labor Day

Labor Day Weekend 2018: "Labor of Love"

Randy Christian

Traditionally, Labor Day in America is a time where workers get off from their usual job as a rewards for their year long daily grind. However, when it comes to Christ, our work is daily, and we must always be ready and willing to share the Gospel with those we encounter. It is our labor of love. For Labor Day weekend in 2018, we asked some guest speakers of the congregation to share with us on how their work and services has shaped their walk with Christ and with others who are seeking the Lord.


Labor of Love

While our culture celebrates the American Labor Movement (or for some, just the recognized end of summer), we turn our attention to the Labor of Love we experience when, like small children getting to help their dad with a project, God allows us to be part of his ministry.  We recognize and celebrate the many ways he lets us help—always remembering what it cost for us to be those children instead of criminals awaiting judgment!

We all remember writing our annual fall essay in school: “What I Did Last Summer”. But have you ever stopped to ask what God did last summer? As we enter the fall, we pause on this day to ask that question, explore how we can tell, and share some of the answers!

Labor Day - Rest

September 4, 2011Randy Christian

Labor Day began as a way of honoring the American Labor Movement. Today, it is a holiday that marks the last big week of the summer—a time or rest and relaxation before the fall schedules begin. But too often people believe they can “rest” best away from the Lord and His people—and it isn’t true! True rest is resting in the Lord, and this Labor Day Sunday we will experience how to really rest—resting in our Lord!
