Congregations that engage in interfaith relations sought for recognition

Congregations that engage with communities of other faiths will be recognized by the National Council of Churches (NCC) Interfaith Relations Commission. The NCC’s Interfaith Engaged Congregational Initiative is receiving nominations for congregations that "have something important to share about interfaith engagement." The commission says the recognition will advance congregational mission and health by empowering them to share their stories with denominational partners, media and potential funders.

The deadline for submission of the nomination form and a two page essay is Sept. 1. To learn how to nominate a congregation or to get more information, go to:
