If you love historic homes, you probably love history of all kinds and what could be more historic than where we nurture our hearts and souls? That is why I’m posting about the Saturday tours on Oct. 12 and Oct. 19 of Columbia places of worship, offered by Columbia Faith and Values, a nonprofit news organization. For more information on the tours, see this posting on the FAV website.
The doors will open for the tours at 12:45 with the tours starting at 1 p.m. and ending by 3:30 p.m. Both tours begin at First Christian Church, 101 N. Tenth St.
The Oct. 12 tour will include First Christian Church, Sacred Heart Catholic Church, First Presbyterian Church, Calvary Episcopal Church, Islamic Center of Central Missouri and Second Baptist Church.
The Oct. 19 tour will include First Christian Church, First Baptist Church, First Presbyterian Church, Missouri United Methodist Church and Islamic Center of Central Missouri.
This is the second Columbia Faith and Values tour of downtown houses of worship, the FAV website notes. The cost is a $10 suggested donation. Last year the tour raised about $300 for the nonprofit news organization. To reserve your spot, email Kellie.Kotraba@ReligionNews.com or call 573.356.2200.
These tours will highlight places of worship. What kinds of tours would you like to see offered in Columbia to highlight historic sites?
