This seasons's series of the Peoria area church tours was held on Tuesday, May 20, 2014, and more than 30 members participated in the popular trip.
Throughout the day, we got a closer look at the beliefs, architecture, and history of New Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church, Northwoods Community Church, Islamic Foundation of Peoria, and St. Jude Catholic Church.
Edward J. Barry Jr., Senior Architectural Manager for Farnsworth Group, Inc., accompanied the group to discuss the architectural highlights. Representatives from each church were also on hand to discuss the their congregational practices.
Thank you to OLLI member Mary Barthel for helping to organize this learning trip!
