We are a church of open minds.
We are a church of loving hearts.
We are a church of helping hands.
Together we care for our earth,
And work for justice
and peace in our world.
Is this your first "virtual visit?" I invite you to read our Mission, learn about our church, read past sermons
and find out about our community, or stop by on a Sunday morning. We'd love to meet you in person.
Reverend Fritz Hudson, Minister ~ email@example.com
Please meet the Rev. Dr. Justin Osterman who will be our Interim Minister beginning August 1.
33rd Street Closing
Due to our renovation project we are housed at a new location until the Fall of 2014. Our temporary home is 1333 N. 33rd St (Faith United Methodist Church).
Beginning Tuesday, May 27, 33rd Street will be closed from P Street to W Street. The City of Lincoln will be rehabilitating and rebuilding the road. Traffic from 33rd Street will be detoured using 27th Street and 48th Street.
Phase 2 will begin later in the summer and take place from W Street to Holdrege Street. At this point, we are encouraging people to use 32nd Street off of Holdrege as the main route to access our parking lot. Please plan your route accordingly.

- (on the main level) larger administrative/minister offices + new restrooms;
- (on the lower level) a music room, a storage area and a mechanical
room servicing a geothermal heating & cooling system
* expansion of our "Gallery Space" (Sanctuary Lobby/Social Area)
- (at the south end) to create a new fireplace, bookstore/café area, and A street profile
- (at the north end) to add a library room and expanded lobby/entrance area (in anticipation of Phase 2: a projected new Sanctuary & lower level classroom addition)
The $2.1 million funding package approved provides for:
$1,265K from capital campaign contributions already made or pledged
$275K from the church's foundation principal
$150K from the sale of a church-owned house
The balance from other donations + mortgage financing.
