Can anyone suggest a culturally diverse church in this area? I am interested in a contemporary service, casual attire, Christian church. I am not really too hung up on a specific religions - I was raised Baptist, but I am definitely open to new experiences, with the exception of probably a charismatic environment.

I am a Black-American. I don't need a certain % of diversity, just enough so that I don't feel completely out of place. I feel most comfortable around different types of people.

Thank you in advance for your help.

I agree, that The Rock Family Worship Center may be a food fit. It is a pretty diverse congregation, so you should not feel out of place. It is a contemporary service and you can dress casual. People dress up as well as wear jeans. Here is their website: The Rock Family Worship Center If it does not work for you, they would be willing to help you find a church that you would feel more comfortable at. Good luck.

Here's what you'll have to work with in Huntsville (data from City-Data.com)

Races in Huntsville:

* White Non-Hispanic (63.4%)
* Black (30.2%)
* Hispanic (2.0%)
* Two or more races (1.8%)
* American Indian (1.3%)
* Other race (0.7%)
* Asian Indian (0.6%)
* Chinese (0.5%)


There is no diversity in Huntsville when 94% (maybe closer to 96% as it's likely the "Two or more races" is black/white) of the population is either black or white.

True, but I noticed one church ( Holy Spirit Catholic) has masses in English, Korean, and Spanish at different times.

Sounds like that church is quite diverse.

In fact, while attending Catholic masses in different towns throughout Alabama while visiting/traveling, it is not unusual to see Whites, Blacks, Orientals, and Hispanics in attendance at the same mass.

Actually, statistics show the worldwide population of Catholics went up comparing the end of 2008 with the end of 2007.

The Catholic population went up 1.7% worldwide ( an increase of 19 million )
