Everyone Has a Place Here
Saint Paul has a rich history of strong music ministries. Led by our Minister of Worship, Rev. Jerry Brabec, our music ministry includes a bell choir, adult choir, seasonal ensembles, and numerous guest musicians. We invite those interested in joining the Joy Bell Choir and singers’ choir to contact Rev. Brabec at email@example.com or by calling the church office.
Faith Formation is vital to the life of Saint Paul. This area of ministry includes age-level ministries, small groups, and seasonal activities.
Current offerings include children’s and youth ministries under the direction of Rev. Wheeler; a weekly Lectio Divina group; and seasonal adult book studies via Zoom.
Children’s Sunday School meets each Sunday following worship at 11:15 am in Room 313. The Youth Group has fun activities scheduled each week. Contact Rev. Wheeler for details!
New Life African Ministry
Omaha has long been a home to refugees and migrants, and Benson is one of several neighborhoods with a rich history of welcoming refugees. Our Sunday noon service welcomes African refugees and their families to worship in Kirundi and Kiswahili as they move to becoming trilingual with the addition of English. This service takes place in our Wesley Hall in the building’s lower level AND can be found “live” on both the Saint Paul Benson Facebook page beginning at approximately 12:15 p.m.
Saint Paul has a strong history of advocacy and giving in our neighborhood and community. A founding member of the Benson Area Refugee Task Force (BART), Saint Paul is also a member of the Benson Neighborhood Association and BFF (formerly known as Benson First Friday.)
Current community partners include Together, Omaha Together One Community (OTOC), The Big Garden, Habitat for Humanity, Youth Emergency Services (YES), and Benson High School. The church supports the UMC-related Guatemala Stove Project, United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) and hosts an annual health clinic which includes free influenza vaccines.
