Saint Paul Interfaith Network (SPIN) is an informal, all-volunteer network hosted by the Saint Paul Area Council of Churches (SPACC). SPIN develops and offers programs which serve to build relationships, understanding and respect among the various religious traditions and groups in our community.
SPIN values interfaith dialogue and networking across traditions, as well as dialogue within faith traditions on ways to build relationships and understanding.
SPIN cooperates with other groups in the area working toward the same goals and assists congregations to develop their own awareness, education and dialogue events.
SPIN events are open and SPIN runs on volunteer power. Participation at whatever level of time and interest you may have are welcome. Join us as we build stronger, peaceful and healthier communities.
