Faith Voices of Greenville

A JOINT SUNDAY SCHOOL SERIES

“As an autonomous Baptist church, we value our heritage and the freedom it allows us to minister alongside other groups, both Christian and non-Christian.” — from our Mission Statement

Did you know that:

  • Baha’i is the 2nd largest faith in South Carolina?
  • In Islamic tradition, Ishmael was the son of Abraham who was almost sacrificed, not Isaac?
  • Buddhism emphasizes meditation and mindfulness rather than worship?
  • The number 108 is holy in Hinduism and is the ratio of the diameter of the sun to that of the Earth?
  • Jesus was Jewish?

Join us in the Fellowship Hall during the Sunday School hour, and let’s hear from and learn about our brothers and sisters together.
