Last year the Spokane Interfaith Council (now a program of SpokaneFāVS) began a house of worship tour throughout Spokane called Meet The Neighbors. They led residents on tours of seven faith communities in the area, and created a how-to video guide so guests can learn the proper way to visit these sacred places.
Season two of Meet the Neighbors will kick off at 6 p.m., Jan. 26 at Bethel AME Church, 645 S Richard Allen Court.
According to the church website over the years Bethel has served as a political and social focal point in Spokane and the Perry District, hosting a variety of events, “Consequently, many of the pioneering black leaders of Spokane emerged from Bethel.”
Bethel AME (African Methodist Episcopal) was organized in 1890. Today the church is led by Rev. Lonnie Mitchell.
Check back on SpokaneFāVS for future program details. All are invited to Meet The Neighbors events and attendance is free, though donations are encouraged and can be made below.
