What would it mean to create a space where we come together to connect with each other, with our deepest selves, and with the world?

Members, friends, and visitors of the First Unitarian Church of Omaha, you are invited to share, reflect, and serve the larger community.

What is Soul Matters?

What is Soul Matters?

These small, relational

groups made up of six to

ten people led by

facilitators meet monthly

to establish and nurture

themselves in this

community and to explore

“…a spiritual value that our

Unitarian Universalist faith

has historically honored and

calls all of us to embody in

our lives.” *
