On Sunday, September 25, 2016, we will remember the forgotten victims of America’s gun violence epidemic with The Concert Across America, a series of live music events of all sizes from coast to coast. Places of worship across the country are encouraged to hold their own music event, be it humble or humongous, to raise the volume on the national effort to save lives from gun violence.
Participation in the concert can include everything from offering a special anthem, to choosing a Sunday’s worth of hymns around the theme of peace, to holding a special performance by a choir, musician or musical group.
If your congregation plans on participating in the concert, please let us know. Congregations can publicize their concert by using the “Add your Concert” link on this page. Ready-made bulletin-style announcements, graphics and flyer-templates can also be found by clicking on the “Resources” link on the same page.
You can also use this moving video to promote the event on your websites and in your social media channels.
