Thank you, CWA friends, for responding to the e-alerts sent out from CWA of North Dakota! Our legislators listen.  Every email and phone call is counted.

 Your voice is needed again, this time, on  HB 1163, a bill to repeal our Sunday Closing Law.  The Senate Political Subdivision Committee gave the bill a Do Pass recommendation on March 9 reporting that they had not heard from constituents! It is now due to be voted on by the full senate in the very near future. 

 The time to act is now!  Setting aside a common day of rest honors God and allows the majority of retail employees’ opportunities to worship on Sunday mornings.

“By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.  Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.”  Genesis 2: 2, 3

  1. Forward this e-mail onto friends and family and ask them to pray and act on this important issue.

Please Pray:  Pray that our state leaders do not change our laws in our state Century Code to uphold the Sunday Closing Law.  

Thank you in advance for your diligent prayers and actions.
