Everyone Must Be Counted:
The Importance of the Census
The Lord spoke to Moses in the tent of meeting in the Desert of Sinai on the first day of the second month of the second year after the Israelites came out of Egypt. He said, “Take a census of the whole Israelite community by their clans and families listing every man by name, one by one.
“Indeed, the hairs of your head are all counted.” The Lord values you so much that each strand of your hair is counted. Amazing! You might not be able to count hair, but you can count everyone in your home. The 2020 Census is here, and everyone who lives with you must be counted! We need you to count babies (even if they’re still at the hospital), children, folks who don’t pay rent but sleep there most of the time, and friends who are couch surfing. The people in your household are much more valuable than hair, so it’s up to you to make sure they are counted! God bless!
Every 10 years, the U.S. Constitution requires that every person living in the United States be counted. It is mandated that everyone regardless of race, class, gender, or citizenship, be included in this count.
There will be three ways to respond: online, by phone, and by mail.
One person will respond for the entire household, but everyone living in the household as of April 1, 2020 should be counted.
PSALMS 87:6 The Lord writes in the census book of nations, “This one was born there.”
