North County faith centers gather at appreciation brunch

Article-5cInterfaith invited members of North County faith centers to the Betty and Melvin Cohn Center in Escondido for its annual Clergy Appreciation Brunch in February 2015. Attendees were welcomed with a selection of songs by local folk singer, Peggy Watson, and were then served meals by Interfaith staff in appreciation for their dedication and service.

Executive Director Greg Anglea started the program by highlighting his personal gratitude for the faith centers’ hard work, not only for their respective congregations, but also to improve the North County community. He also introduced several guests, including Pastors Arliss and Floyd Freeman from Calvary Assembly, John Wichmann of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Reverend Meg Decker of Trinity Episcopal Church. The presentation concluded by encouraging attendees to spend the remaining time getting to know those of other faiths and discussing possible ways to work together in the future.

Interfaith not only thanks those faith leaders who were present at this year’s brunch, but all faith centers that volunteer, donate and involve themselves with Interfaith’s programs throughout the year. We appreciate all of your time and support!
