Local churches join together for Election Day Communion
Posted: 10/26/2012 at 11:28 am
The event was started by Mark Schloneger, pastor at North Goshen Mennonite Church, four years ago at a church he was a pastor at in Virginia. His goal is to unite Christians of all dominations and political beliefs together to unite in Christ’s name.
The movement includes 367 congregations, schools and groups throughout 45 states and Washington, D.C. Attendees are encouraged to vote in the election as they wish, if they wish. Attendees are not required to vote to take communion.
