On June 10, 2004 Sun Newspapers reported that, "On June 19, the Methodists and the Muslims will get together for a big picnic at Brooklyn Park’s River Park. It will be the third picnic that the congregations have organized since the terrorist attacks in September 2001, which put the nation at war but brought the local Islamic center and church together for the very first time... A few hundred members of the mosque and church are expected to attend the third annual picnic, which is their largest collaboration but not the only one. Each month, a smaller core group [also] meets."
