“To engage the congregation in connecting with members of the community through events and projects to assist those in need, and to offer opportunities for spiritual growth.”
The Unity of Omaha Spiritual Social Action Program selects special service projects open to the entire congregation throughout the year. Other projects are active on an ongoing basis. We attempt to balance efforts between local, national and international areas, age specific areas, gender areas, traditional projects and exploring new avenues. We try to support organizations with a structure in place to preclude starting from scratch and to better utilize our resources.
