NAUSET INTERFAITH ASSOCIATION
The Nauset Interfaith Association was established from a previous clergy support group as a response to the tragic events of September 11, 2001. About 20 congregations on the lower and outer cape send clergy ( active or retired ) or lay representative, or both, to the NIA Steering Committee which meets monthly at member congregations on a rotating basis.
We sponsor several annual interfaith events, namely, a Thanksgiving service, a Martin Luther King breakfast, and a holocaust memorial service as well as an ecumenical Good Friday service. We also support other educational and advocacy events, sometimes in conjunction with other groups.
Nauset Interfaith has founded or supports five ‘action teams’ on the lower and outer cape working on the issues of racism, at risk youth, immigrants and refugees, hungry children, income inequality and early childhood education. They are: The Network of Human Service and Faith Communities, Martin Luther King Action Team, Youth Outreach Hospitality Action Team, Refugee Support Action Team and Food4Kids ( a summer food and book program ).
