Open Doors

Our vision is to build a community for Christ within the greater Omaha area in which all are welcome – a place where all individuals and families can grow and flourish in faith and discover God’s plan for their lives.

Whatever your gift, be assured that it will help First Lutheran Church continue to offer the many community programs that help ensure that the needs of the less fortunate are met. We pride ourselves in following the example of Christ as spoken about in the following parable:

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’
Matthew 25:34-40
