| A MESSAGE FOR PASTORS – September 2020 |
Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.
(Luke 16:10 NIV)
Christians in the First Century did not vote. Of course, back then, there was no voting. Now there is. For me, it is a civic responsibility.
During this election timeframe, it is important to know what churches can and cannot do. Here is what they can do:
– Equip church members with the biblical perspective on an issue
– Nonpartisan voter registration, get out the vote efforts and voter education
– Distribute voter guides that do not endorse a candidate
– Speak about a candidate’s position without endorsing or opposing that candidate
Even if you do not have a voter registration table in your church building, you can encourage people to vote by adding the following to an email, to your website, or in your bulletin:
– Need to Register to Vote? For help go to https://familypolicyalliance.com/vote

Let me know if you have any questions.
