The Greater Concord Interfaith Council promotes understanding, peace, and respect. We affirm that what unites us is greater than what divides us. We work to create a respectful environment in which earnest people can explore our religious diversity through common worship, mutual education and community outreach.
On September 21, 1949, several area churches met to form a group whose purpose would be to further ecumenical religious life in the Concord area. On February 24, 1950, by-laws were adopted for the Greater Concord Council of Churches. The original membership was comprised of Protestant and Catholic Churches.
In the mid 1980's the constitution was revised to become the Greater Concord Interfaith Council and membership was extended to the Jewish Synagogue, Bahai Faith, Concord Friends Meeting, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Unitarian Universalist Church, and other religious bodies interested in furthering our mission.
