Election Day Communion is not a program or a product. It’s an idea.
Here’s how it works.
If you’re a pastor or church leader, invite your congregation to participate in a communion service (either by hosting or joining with another congregation) on the evening of Tuesday, November 8, 2016.
If you’re a church member who’s tired of politics dividing the Church, help us get the word out. Talk with your congregation about holding a communion service on Election Day. Share Election Day Communion with your friends on Facebook.
Then on Tuesday, November 3, let’s come together in our respective churches, regardless of party, political affiliation, or denomination. Let’s all share this sacred act of communion together, reaffirming our allegiance to Christ.
As Election Day approaches, we’ll make available some free resources you can use to spread the word and plan your service.
But, at the end of the day, it’s simply communion. The Lord’s Supper. The Holy Eucharist. It’s the bread, the cup, and the body of believers gathered in the presence of Christ and each other.
And that’s all that matters.
Looking to attend an Election Day Communion service? Check out the map below to find a participating church near you. Many churches are partnering with others to offer EDC, so be sure to contact them to find out the time and location of the service.
(OK, maybe it isn’t so simple this year! Some of us will use Youtube or Zoom to make EDC happen. Check with the church to find out how to join in)
