Bring Voting to Worship
The 2020 election will determine the fate of our democracy and as people of faith we must find innovative ways to show up, faithfully, and with purpose. Integrating voting information on how to register to vote and make a voter plan for your congregation within the worship service encourages more voter participation, and ensures that we have leadership founded in dignity, peace, faith, and respect of all people.
