Interfaith Action Community

The Interfaith Action Community is a group of congregations and faith communities (among them are Beth Israel, St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church, Islamic Society of Chester County, St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, St. Elizabeth Roman Catholic Church, St. Paul’s United Church of Christ, Downingtown Friends Meeting, the Lionville YMCA, Bahá'í Faith, etc.) coming together to educate each other on our faith traditions, learn about our similarities, celebrate the differences, and to cooperate on religious action project such as on homelessness in our community, alleviating hunger, etc.


The mission of the Interfaith Action Community is to provide for ourselves and the faith communities and traditions to which we belong (or with which we identify) opportunities to 

      -  CELEBRATE our traditions' similarities and differences

      -  FEEL a sense of unity among our faith communities

      - GROW personal friendships with each other

We do this through actions of education, shared prayer and joint service.

Inspired by our individual faith traditions and beliefs, we do these things for the betterment of ourselves and each other, our communities and society.
