Serving Our Community
Share the Plate
Since 2011 we have donated half our offering each Sunday to charitable organizations. We call this Share the Plate!
We select a new organization every other month. During worship we learn about the recipient’s social justice program. Then at the end of two months, we award half the collected offering to the organization.
We accept nominations from church members via our Share the Plate Nomination Form.
We look for opportunities to support organizations that provide quality programming to the community.
KIOS – We are underwriters of “All Things Considered,” a well-respected National Public Radio program aired on KIOS.
River City Mixed Chorus (RCMC) – We sponsor ads in the programs of RCMC, Omaha’s volunteer chorus of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered persons and their straight allies (GLBTA). RCMC is known for “creating exceptional musical experiences to support diversity, inspire change, and empower communities.”
Film Streams and University of Nebraska at Omaha Women’s and Gender Studies – We partnered with these organizations to promote their film series Gender Revolt! A Celebration of Queer Cinema. This series of films and post-film discussions sought to increase community awareness of the histories, lives and cultures of LGBTQ persons.
Refugee Empowerment Center – Church members provide holiday gifts for children and adults through the Refugee Empowerment Center.
