I'm New...

Welcome…

We are so glad you have stopped by to learn about this vibrant community of faith, which has been a part of the city of Omaha for nearly 150 years. First Christian is a great place to deepen your Christian faith through worship, service, study and fellowship. Together with people from various life circumstances, interests and ages you will find a welcoming space to entertain your heartfelt questions and respond to God’s unmerited grace. I invite you to look around and come and join in God’s work…
