Breaking bread with our Muslim neighbors

The Outreach Ministry Team invites you to join them Tuesday, May 30, for a “breaking of the Ramadan fast” meal at the nearby mosque located next to the Fairgrounds, Masjid at-Taqwa. The mosque has invited the public to attend one of its “Iftar” meals that day at 8 p.m. There is no specific program or worship time, but simply an opportunity to eat and converse with our Muslim neighbors.

The month of Ramadan is a holy time for Muslims around the world, in which they celebrate the first revelation of their holy scriptures, the Quran, to Mohammed. It is a time of fasting during the daylight hours, introspection and prayer. Many mosques throughout the Twin Cities will be opening their Iftar meals to the public again this year during Ramadan (May 26-June 27).

RSVPs are needed for the May 30 meal. Go to the Minnesota Council of Churches website to register. Contact Pastor Anne if you have questions or need help registering.
