GREENSBORO, N.C. – Congregations in Greensboro are coming together as part of an interfaith tour that the National Conference of Community and Justice puts on every year.

This year, the tour went to Beth David Synagogue, Providence Baptist Church, and The Islamic Center.

Organizers said the purpose of the tour is to give the community the chance to learn about different religions and ask questions.

This is the 18th year for the Interfaith Tour in Greensboro and more than 400 people participated.

Pastor Howard Chubbs with Providence Baptist Church said people need to respect other people’s faiths because that is what they choose to believe.

This was the first time participating for Amy Campbell, a youth minister. She said there were more similarities between the religions than she thought.

Campbell said we all have different ways of worshipping and coming together.

"When we see each other on the street we really aren't so different?" she said.
