Peace Islands Institute & Hackettstown TUMC
Friendship Gathering & Luncheon
Sunday, September 25th at 12:15 p.m. in Trinity House
Peace Islands Institute is an organization that aspires to facilitate forums of mutual respect and collaboration, and to promote education, friendship and harmony, and act as an island of peace for all peoples in a society of different ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds.
Trinity’s God in Many Faces ministry explores issues about race, faith traditions, ethnicity and social justice. We’re working to foster dialogue and understanding among the people with whom all of us may come in contact with in our communities, in church and in our places of work.
Peace Islands and God in Many Faces have collaborated in our efforts to bring our shared interests in a forum to Trinity, and we’re delighted to offer a Friendship Gathering and Luncheon on September 25th in Trinity House. We’ll gather for dialogue and a delicious lunch of traditional Turkish food. Through informal and facilitated conversations, attendees will have an opportunity to connect with Muslim representatives from Peace Islands. Our Muslim friends will also join us for worship at the 10:45 a.m. service.
Please consider joining us for this special opportunity. Sign up using the Just Say Yes form in the worship bulletins or call the church office. There is no cost to attend this event but registration is required. Also, for this first event, only Trinity parishioners and their guests are invited.
