Election Do's and Don't for Churches

Many pastors are unaware of just how involved they're allowed to be in political elections. Many pastors are under the false impression that their church will lose its charitable tax status if they mention elections or political parties from the pulpit. That is not the case whatsoever. To learn what you can and cannot say from the pulpit during election campaigns, download this file.

 

Election Guide handouts: no risk to tax-exempt status

The two-page Election Guide for Serious Christians respects Canada's laws regarding registered charities and political involvement. Therefore, it is totally safe to hand out in church, to read from the pulpit or use as a bulletin insert, without risk to your church's tax-exempt status. This piece is suitable for federal or provincial elections. It can be printed one or two-sided on your desktop printer, or at a copy shop. Contact us if you would like to order a supply of full-colour, glossy, printed Election Guides.

 

Pro-life Sermons & Homilies

Many pastors do not have time to do all the research related to abortion, embryonic stem cells, euthanasia, etc. Campaign Life Coalition makes it easy for you, whether Protestant or Catholic, to preach a powerful pro-life sermon in tune with the scripture readings for your Sunday service (or Mass).

(note: these may also be useful for Anglicans and Lutherans who share the same liturgical calendar with the Catholic church)
