Welcome to a Community of Interfaith Understanding!


Beyond tolerance, we value hospitality, understanding, respect, and acceptance.



As interfaith engagement approaches its third decade in West Michigan, we are excited to welcome new audiences and neighbors into the work of interfaith understanding and social engagement.
