2018 is the Year of Interfaith Friendship!

Our interfaith affinity groups bring families and individuals together around common interests in ways that develop personal relationships and friendships. There are currently seven groups meeting regularly with others to be added in the near future.  They are organized around such interests as cinema, book reading, fitness, scriptural reading, knitting, art, medicine, and contemplative traditions.

Welcome to a Community of Interfaith Understanding!


People Talking

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. The next chapter in the story of West Michigan's interfaith movement has yet to be written. Much has been accomplished, and much remains to be done. 

How might you join the story?
