TEMECULA – The Interfaith Council of Murrieta and Temecula Valley at its recent monthly meeting elected their officers for the coming year. Those elected as co-chairs were Alifah Ahmad, member of the Islamic Center of Temecula Valley, and Emmy Slusser of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Temecula Stake; as treasurer, Jim Willis of Center for Spiritual Living of the Temecula Valley and as secretary, Marti Treckman of Grace Presbyterian Church in Temecula.

Appreciation for his service was given to outgoing officer Craig Smedley, member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Murrieta Stake. He served for the past two years as co-chair.

The Interfaith Council sponsors several major events during the year, including the annual Night of Music each spring and the annual Night of Gratitude on the Sunday night before Thanksgiving. The council also has established a Humanitarian Award to honor an individual or organization that exemplifies the objectives of the Interfaith Council, especially cooperation, equity, unity, respect, compassion, dignity, human rights and justice, which are only a few of the virtues and requirements of a peaceful and just society.

The council presents outstanding speakers periodically at the Temecula Public Library and cooperates among its members to help each other with their events that benefit the community.

The Interfaith Council meets monthly except July and August to plan its events and to hear members or other people of the spiritual community speak about their faith or their local humanitarian projects. The meetings are hosted by Miller-Jones Mortuary and are held at their location at 26855 Jefferson Ave. in Murrieta.

New members are welcome to attend the meetings, which are held from noon to 1:30 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month. To be added to the mailing list or for more information, contact the secretary at (951) 698-6116 or [email protected]
