About Us

The Omaha-area Inclusive Methodist Churches are a network of churches who welcome and affirm people of all sexual orientations and gender identities to participate fully in the life and ministries of their congregations. Besides offering local welcome and affirmation, we are working for the full inclusion and acceptance of LGBTQIA people in our United Methodist denomination, the whole church, and all of society. We are congregations of different sizes, in different types of buildings, in different parts of the Omaha metropolitan area who all share one goal: to be safe and affirming places for people to encounter the love of God in worship, community, and service. We hope you will visit us soon!

The Omaha-area Inclusive Methodist Churches invite you to be part of the conversation about dismantling white supremacy and ending racism in ourselves, our churches, our city, our nation, and our world. We are committing to learning more through our book groups this summer, and we welcome all people to be part of this anti-racist journey. Various churches are hosting the book groups via Zoom.
