Seven people gather at the Idaho Falls Activity Center near the Idaho Falls Regional Airport. It’s 1 p.m. on a Friday.

Those in attendance are men, mostly middle-aged, dressed in casual attire. Two of the men are younger: One in his mid- to late-30s, the other in his 20s.

The man leading the group is dressed in a white robe and a Taqiyah, a short, brimless rounded cap.

The men are there for one purpose: to worship God through words and music in their own way and on their own terms.

Welcome to “Finding Faith,” a podcast exploring the history, culture and beliefs of different denominations in eastern Idaho.
