Central Christian Church and The Gathering Community Church have come together to co-sponsor an election-eve service titled, “The Gospel & The Vote: Reviving the Politics of Jesus.” This service aims to provide an opportunity for the Danbury community to come together for worship, to pray for the election and reflect on Jesus' words about leadership, Gospel values and God’s vision for the world.
“The church has a prophetic responsibility to inspire and inform, to encourage and enlighten,” said Pastor Wesley Johnson II, lead pastor of The Gathering Community Church. “This gathering presents an opportunity to do that.”
In addition to the service, information regarding same-day registration, how to find the correct voting location, and the importance of the local election will be provided. Invitations to both major parties have been extended in order to answer questions from attendees following the service.
“This election has brought forth some very nasty rhetoric and vitriol,” said Rev. Stephen Tickner, Senior Pastor of Central Christian Church. “We hope to create a sacred space that unites our community and reminds us of the values and vision God calls on us to create here on earth as it is in heaven.”
“The Gospel & The Vote” will be taking place at Central Christian Church on Monday, November 7th at 7pm. Everyone is invited.
