INTERFAITH COMMUNITY PROGRAMS

 

MeckMIN offers several community programs that encourage interfaith collaboration. Learn more about how to join Mecklenburg's faith, nonprofit and community leaders in their efforts to build bridges. Explore our youth volunteer and community service projects, encourage your house of faith to host an Open Table event.

Below is a full list of  all the different ways you can participate. Thank you for helping us build bridges!

OPEN TABLES

Dinner and dialogue sessions hosted by local congregations. Through fellowship and food, Open Tables aims to build substantive relationships among our diverse congregations based on our shared humanity, reaching beyond the divides of tribalism. MeckMIN will connect congregations willing to host with congregations of other faiths and/or racial/ethnic make-ups willing to attend. Please email for further information on upcoming Open Table events.

INTERFAITH YOUTH  PROGRAMS

Our Interfaith Youth Programs are geared toward middle and high school students interested in connecting with youth from different houses of faith to foster interfaith relationships, develop leadership skills, and participate in community service projects. 

FAITH CLUB

4th Wednesday of every month 

7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. |  

The Faith Club is MeckMin's interfaith book group, composed of women of all faiths who gather to discuss books and other materials of a spiritual nature. We have found that sharing our faith journeys and practices is a rich experience.

Meetings are held at Park Road Baptist Church (3900 Park Rd, Charlotte 28209) from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.  

 

This is a great opportunity to learn about each other's faith and to make lasting friendships. The group shares leadership: contact Saeeda Mubaarak, or Jinny Sullivan for more information.
