St. Mark’s Episcopal Church

1000 N. Mississippi Ave., Little Rock, AR

Doors open at 5:45

Event starts at 6:00.

Arkansas House of Prayer and The Interfaith Center will present “Love Thy Neighbor: Meeting at the Well,” taking place at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church on Thursday, September 10, 2015, and featuring musical performances, speakers from several of the world’s religions, and an Interfaith Food Festival to follow the event.

Arkansas House of Prayer and its sister organization, The Interfaith Center, both based in Little Rock, are honored to be able to hold this gathering for the 4th year in a row. The event began as a peace-oriented service on the grounds of the House of Prayer, marking the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2011 as an opportunity to draw people together who are dedicated to peace in our community and the world. The event has grown over the years and is moving to a larger location, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church (1000 N. Mississippi Ave.), for the first time this year.

The event is open to the public of all ages and free of charge. The intergenerational service will last about an hour and will feature speakers from the world religions, time for prayer and silence, musical performances from local artists and an interfaith chorus, and, for a second year in a row, an Interfaith Food Festival with vegetarian dishes prepared by members of the interfaith community. While no childcare will be provided, children are welcome at this event.
