election-day-communionWelborne will be offering an Election Day Communion Service on Tuesday, November 8, at 6:00 pm in the sanctuary.  The focus of the service will be to gather as brothers and sisters around Christ’s table and celebrate our unity in Christ.  Welborne is a polling precinct, so please use the outside sidewalk to enter the sanctuary.

From the Election Day Communion website:

“Election Day Communion began in 2012 with a concern that Christians in the United States are being shaped more by the tactics and ideologies of political parties than by their identity in and allegiance to Jesus.

Out of this concern, a simple vision sparked the imaginations of several Mennonite pastors: The Church being the Church on Election Day, gathering at the Lord’s Table to remember, to practice, to give thanks for, and to proclaim its allegiance to Christ.

This simple vision is now shared by individuals, congregations, schools and groups of many denominations and many locations. In red states, blue states, and swing states, we will celebrate Election Day Communion together, as one.”
