Omaha’s Countryside church votes to join tri-faith site near 132nd & Pacific April 12, 2015

Kris Hess joined Countryside Community Church because of its strong children’s ministry and uplifting preaching.

But now she has a new reason to be happy she signed up six years ago.

The congregation voted Sunday to relocate to a planned interfaith site for Christians, Muslims and Jews in west Omaha.

The decision was important because it keeps alive a plan by the nonprofit Tri-Faith Initiative organization to have all three faith groups represented.

Hess said that she voted in favor of moving because of opportunities for collaboration and building relationships with people of Jewish and Muslim faiths.

“We just need to move to this level of greater understanding,” she said. Click Here to link to the article.
