Welcome…

We are so glad you have stopped by to learn about this congregation, which has been a part of the city of Omaha for nearly 150 years.

This is a place where everyone, regardless of where we are on our faith journey, is invited to believe, belong, and become. I invite you wander around this website to learn more about this vibrant, loving family of faith.
