Some of us OHG people are working with other people of all faiths all across Gaston County to create The Gaston Interfaith Center. There are a few events in the Fall that we’re helping put together in our area, with GIC and several other communities. Please come be a part of them if you can!
Memorial Service for the September 11th terrorist attacks- Sunday, September 11, 2 PM at the Martin Luther King Plaza, at the Gaston County DSS building, at the corner of Marietta St. and Long Ave. in Gastonia. Prayer will begin at 2 PM, with many neighbors and many faiths participating.
Peace Walk, from Temple Emanuel to The Islamic Society of Gastonia, Saturday, October 29. We will most likely begin this walk at the Temple at 8 AM, and will have places along the route where we’ll stop and pray for Peace. That way you can join us at a prayer time if you cannot walk the whole route (4.6 miles total). More details for this event are on the way.
Interfaith Thanksgiving Service, Monday, November 21, 7 PM, at First United Methodist Church, Gastonia. Join us as we celebrate the meaning of this American holiday for all of us.
