The forum supports the ongoing education efforts of other organizations in the Anderson area and beyond.

GAIN – Greater Anderson Interfaith Network

GAIN is a recently formed Interfaith group formed to forge understanding and cooperation among the many faith traditions represented within the upstate. We believe that all faith traditions share many common values and goals and that through education and cooperation we can better serve our communities. To that end, we have initiated the Finding Common Ground series of programs at the county library to provide a neutral location where interested persons can learn about and explore some of the faiths practiced within the Anderson area.
