Summer Service: “Raise Up American Workers”
September 6th at 9:30 am
led by Lisa Shumway & Sharon Barrett

On this Labor Day weekend Sunday, we will raise up American workers. From frontline workers who courageously put themselves in harm’s way to provide essential services to the rest of us during the pandemic, to those who endured financial hardship by selflessly stepping back from their work to stem the spread of COVID-19.
