The 2016 presidential election is over, and we have a new president. But we also have deep divisions among Americans. Many are relieved, celebratory, and even overjoyed. Still just as many are disappointed, disillusioned, and even fearful.

How should we view this election outcome?
Whether your candidate won or lost, our hope as Christ followers is not in a political person, party, or system. Our ultimate loyalty cannot be given to a political person, party, or system. Our ultimate loyalty is to be given to a King, his kingdom, and his mission.
Our pastors have compiled several resources below that we hope will help our church family process recent events and frame the election in a biblical perspective.
