church election resources
This November, the future of our nation and our freedoms are at stake. We need leaders like you to encourage your congregation to vote and become good stewards of their earthly citizenship and make a difference by voting in this critical election. As Christians we are not committed to political parties, personalities or candidates. Our duty is even higher than what some would label as liberal or conservative. Our highest calling to honor God with every part of our life– including voting. We are recommending every church in Florida do these 3 things:
1. Show the below 60 second “Honoring God” video (or display a visual graphic meme)
2. Encourage church members to go to www.FLfamily.org for information on voting resources.
3. Make an announcement regarding the upcoming election with the website showing to get more info.
You could also go the extra mile by…
• Copying and distributing the “Honoring God” bulletin insert below
• Preach a sermon on voting, Christian citizenship, good government or some related topic
