Faith Community

The Fargo Moorhead community is a rich and beautiful tapestry of religious and cultural diversity.   The robust economy and large higher education presence continues to attract people of religious and cultural diversity to the region.

 

The FM area has abundant Christian congregations ready to welcome visitors and residents to worship services.  In addition, Fargo Moorhead is proud to have many Hindu residents, the Jewish synagogue Temple Beth-El, a Baha’i congregation, several active Buddhist communities, and a Muslim community of more than 5,000 people.  Native American spirituality contributes an essential component to the cultural and religious life of the region, as embodied in the Fargo Moorhead Native American Center.  Non-religious folks also call Fargo Moorhead home, with organizations like the Lake Agassiz Free Thinkers.

If you are considering making a move, let Fargo Moorhead surprise you.
