Save the date – March 25, 2023 – Ministry Day.


During the 1800’s, the labor unions grew more prominent and vocal about workers’ rights and workplace conditions. Strikes and rallies began popping up and organizers fought for better pay. The first Labor Day Parade was celebrated on September 5, 1882 in New York City when on that day ten to twenty thousand workers marched across lower Manhattan.  On June 28, 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed a law making the first Monday in September of each year, a national holiday. He declared Labor Day, as a holiday, in order to honor and recognize the American Labor Movement and the hard work and contributions of laborers across the United States. While we pay homage and respect to all laborers, Labor Day weekend to us is considered the unofficial end of summer. Labor Day serves as our last chance to experience what the best of summer has to offer with cookouts, pool parties, parades, time with family and friends and more.

Enjoy this day with your families as we pray together for those whose working conditions are still not what they ought to be.
