Please note that our Church Office and campus will be closed on September 3, 2018, in observance of Labor Day.

This Labor Day, let us pray for those who work, who serve as volunteers, or who seek employment. Thank you for all you do.


A Blessing for Workers and All Seeking Work
Blessed are you, ever-creating God,
in your image, our lives are made;
in your glory, we offer all the work of our hearts and hands and minds.
Blessed are you, O God, now and forever!

Blessed are you whose work is repaid,
for by your work, and by the payment you receive
your lives and the lives of others around you and around the world are blessed.
We thank God for you day by day.

Blessed are you whose work is unpaid,
who offer what you can to enrich the lives of others,
through time, talents, skill, strength, and love.
We praise God for your generous labor!

Blessed are you who seek work but have not found it,
or whose work now is not yet what it may be
yet still you seek, that your gifts may be shared more fully.
We praise God for your diligent seeking and pray you may soon find!

Yours is the glory in their labors.
Yours be the glory in all our lives, in Jesus' name. Amen.
