First Unitarian Church of Omaha
Welcome to a Different Kind of Congregation
The First Unitarian Church of Omaha has offered a unique approach to religion emphasizing the freedom to explore various spiritual paths, tolerance for diverse ideas, and the use of reason in religion, since its founding in 1869 . We see the religious community as a place that will not lay down rigid rules, but instead invites you into a dialogue about the meaning of your life and about your relationship with others, with our planet, and with the mystery that lies beyond and within.
We explore various religious traditions for their wisdom – not only the Jewish and Christian sources but also the world religions. In addition, we learn from the natural world, science, literature, and the great minds and inspiring individuals of past and present.
In a community of young and old,
gay and straight, from various cultural and racial backgrounds, we seek
to make this world a better place for all.

Gift Cards Help to Support First Unitarian ChurchDid you know that you can support your church with no additional out of pocket expense. Gift cards (often called "scrip" can be purchased from the church at face value and then spent at the issuing merchant just like cash. Because the church is able to purchase these gift card at a discount, you are actually contributing to the church a portion of what you normally spend at the merchant . Our initial Gift Card/Scrip project is with Bakers Supermarket. More Information.
Governance Task ForceThe Board of Trustees has established a task force to consider how we might improve our governance processes and organization. Check out the GTF Web Page to learn more about their assignment.
On Sundays, we reserve our parking lot immediately next to the church to accommodate the handicapped, anyone else who needs to park near the building, and visitors to our service. We ask that all others use the nearby free parking that is readily available thanks to our neighbors National Indemnity Company and Mutual of Omaha.
