Understanding Islam and Building Community

Sunday, October 9

A three-person panel from the Islamic Society of Milwaukee will discuss Islam – its history, its beliefs, and the role of women – at “Understanding Islam.”  The event will take place Sunday, October 9, at 3:00-4:30 pm in the sanctuary.  A reception will follow in the Friendship Lounge.

The event is designed to answer common questions Christians share about Islam.  Knowing more about the Muslim faith will help us all better navigate our increasingly pluralistic society.

Ahmed Quereshi, president of the Islamic Society Board of Directors, will lead the panel. He will be joined by two others from the Society’s leadership team who can provide further insights into Milwaukee’s Muslim community.

The program is open to the public.  Upon entering the church, attendees will have an opportunity to write down their own questions about Islam.  The panel will answer as many as time allows.

The program and reception are offered at no charge.

First Congregational Church is located at the corner of Menomonee River Parkway and Church Street in Wauwatosa. 
Please access the church from the Parkway (south of North Avenue) or Milwaukee Avenue to avoid street construction on State Street in the village.
