Second Unitarian Church is a place where
all people are welcomed!

As a Welcoming Congregation, we intentionally welcome people who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, or Queer (LGBTQ), as well as those who are Questioning and their Allies. Second Unitarian extends a special welcome to those searching for a religious home that welcomes your full identity.

Our congregation works with Omaha-area organizations as well as other LGBTQ-friendly congregations to support equal rights for all people without regard to their sexual orientation or gender identity.

LGBTQ Justice Work

We monitor and research city and state-wide legislation affecting LGBTQ people. We have coordinated panel discussions, hosted informative speakers and conducted worship services in support of National Coming Out Day. Our congregants march in the Heartland Pride parade and host booths at LGBTQ-focused events.

Join our Social Justice Committee to help coordinate our local LGBTQ justice work. We typically meet after the worship service on the third Sunday of the month. Note: We currently meet via Zoom. Contact to request a Zoom invitation.

Trans Social Group

In early 2012, we saw a need for and initiated a group for transgender youth in the Omaha metro area. Participants named it the Open Arms Trans Social Group (OATS). Youth, young adults and their families support one another at monthly meetings by sharing not only their hopes and concerns, but also clothes, advice, resources, and emotional sustenance. A meal and childcare are provided.

Today, OATS draws young people from well beyond the Omaha area. Visit the Open Arms Trans Social Group website at

Note: OATS is currently on hold until our church building reopens. For more information about attending OATS meetings, please contact
