We are looking for more in-sanctuary techies for Sunday mornings. Our tech team has done a fantastic job making the process easy and intuitive.  Eager to help our Tech Team or want to learn more?

Sunday Morning Greeters

We have an ongoing need for Sunday morning greeters/ushers. The tasks are fairly simple – make sure the doors are unlocked (and then locked), collect the offering, and share a hearty “Good morning!” to all who enter. Go here to learn more and sign up:

It’s time to get out the word about First Unitarian over the airwaves on KIOS Omaha Public Radio.  What is the word? 



We here at First UU seek to connect with our community. KIOS Omaha Public Radio reaches one million people in the Omaha Metro-which include Council Bluffs and the suburbs.

We underwrite advertising spots on KIOS that air on the primetime news shows Morning Edition and All Things Considered, as well as the weekend talk and quiz shows. These ad spots illuminate our inclusivity, diversity, spirituality and rationality and reach those who are seeking a connection.

These ad spots are bought with our donations. When we bundle them together, we can buy more ad spots-and make more CONNECTIONS. 

Until June 30th, you may donate to this campaign by placing your check-payable to First Unitarian with KIOS in the memo line-in the collection plate, in the mail to the church office or by handing it to Jean Wagner.


Thanks for helping us CONNECT with our community!

Musicians Wanted! 

We're looking for folks who would like to join the contemporary music group The Offbeats. We're esp looking for guitarists or percussionists. We rehearse once a week at the church.

From the Membership Team: 
Front Door Wreaths

We would like to make the front entrance more welcoming year-round. Seasonal wreaths placed on the front doors are a great way to warm the entrance. If you’re able and willing to create and/or purchase these wreaths, please contact Membership Coordinator, Melissa Gibson, at
Communication Cards

You may have noticed the new yellow cards at the entrances to the sanctuary. These cards replace an assortment of other papers. Visitors can input their information, members can update their contact information, a space for Joys & Concerns is available on the back, and there is a QR code to find upcoming events and programming on the church’s website. Everyone is encouraged to make use of these cards. Just drop them – filled out or blank – in the offering basket!
Rainbow Lanyards for Membership Committee & Greeters

All members of the Membership Committee and Sunday Morning Greeters are encouraged to wear the new rainbow lanyards during Sunday services and coffee hour. This designates you as someone for visitors to approach with questions (and if you can’t answer the question, you can guide them to someone who can). Lanyards are available in the middle drawer in the foyer (beneath the parking validation area).
