Ministry and is open to young adults working part-time or full-time, and
any undergraduate students attending classes at any metro college or
university part-time or full-time. (We have students from UNO, Omaha
Metro CC sites, Iowa Western, and College of St. Mary).This group
has a core of a dozen students and meets every Thursday evening from
7:00 until 8:30 at St. Timothy Lutheran Church on 93rd and Dodge. We
include a time for games to get better acquainted, a time to check in with
the group on how our week has gone, and a discussion on a Bible story
or faith. We also do occasional service projects, fun activities, and visit
nearby churches to worship with them on Sundays. To find this group
