As Labor Day weekend quickly approaches, congregations and clergy members are invited to plan worship services around the hard workers of our nation. The Council has created a 2019 Labor Sabbath guide to be used by faith communities. Congregations will find resources and action items for Labor Day weekend and how to continue highlighting impacted workers beyond Labor Day. Click here to access our 2019 Labor Sabbath Guide.

She was actively involved in the ministries of the congregation, a church that worked directly with first generation immigrant families as part of their focus and outreach. She is excited to start working to build the NC Sanctuary Coalition for the Council of Churches. In her free time, Rachel loves all things outdoors, including hiking with her dogs, exploring new trails, and playing sports. She also enjoys playing her ukulele, cooking, and traveling.
