Different forms or denominations of Christianity are “ecumenical” groups, while “interfaith” groups offer dialogue between different faiths.
You can study about these and other topics – and also build friendships or do work together. Respecting and learning about other faith traditions doesn’t devalue your own; often, you learn more about your own faith in the process, too.
Tarrant Churches Together – “For half a century Tarrant Churches Together has been about connecting for good. Through Volunteer opportunities, TCT unifies the community to bring resources, educational support, and empowerment to all God’s Children.”
The Multicultural Alliance in Fort Worth offers a variety of programs that invite participants to learn about other faith traditions through dialogue and relationships. You can meet people from other faiths for dinner and conversation at a Table Talk or invite a speaker from MCA to give a presentation. If you want to delve deeper and learn more, sign up to participate in a six-session Interfaith Dialogue. Camp CommUNITY offers high school students an opportunity to build meaningful friendships with people from different backgrounds.
