Our small groups provide a way to connect with others and foster relationships on a deeper level than is often possible in our daily lives. These provide opportunities to really listen to others and to be heard by them, for we believe we are most truly human when we are able to be in authentic relationship with others.

Reaching out to the Greater Community

We feel it is also important to connect with the greater community beyond the walls of this congregation. We are very active in Omaha Together One Community, and our Social Justice Committee works to:

  • Become a beacon to the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender (LGBT) community
  • Care for our environment
  • End racism
