- COEXIST, an interfaith gathering described as "a gathering of individuals who are interested in how worldviews affect their engagement in society, rather than faith, narrowly defined. Agnostic, Atheist, Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, and Muslim perspectives are all currently represented and are valued voices in the group. The group meets for topical discussion, reading of foundational texts (both religious and non-religious) and to hear speakers from various faith traditions in the community. On the second Sunday of the month, the group joins the Kalamazoo Interfaith Forum at the Sikh Gurdwara (place of worship) in Portage to engage people from the wider Kalamazoo area in conversation and fellowship."

- Partners in Pride and Faith, a LGBT-focused gathering which "meets monthly to communicate and develop strategies to support the LGBT community in tangible ways." (see here)
Another interesting aspect of this ELCA - ECUSA Campus Ministry is that one of their student staff is a Muslim. His bio states,"Since his conversion to Islam in 2006, he has had the opportunity to study Arabic, Islamic theology, Islamic Jurisprudence, and Islamic spiritual philosophy under the eminent Shaykh, Sharif Ahmed Sahibzada of Grand Rapids, Michigan. He has volunteered for several Islamic organizations as well as several charity initiatives, most notable of which being Islamic Relief's 'Day of Dignity.' He currently is the main contact for COEXIST at WMU." (read here)
I wonder what the students are learning about the Biblical Jesus, the Word of God - The Holy Bible, and salvation by grace through faith in Jesus alone? By what I read on their website, not much of anything.
