On the first Friday of each month Messiah is scheduled to serve dinner at the Stephen Center, 2723 Q Street, Omaha, 68107. The Stephen Center partners with the community, families, and individuals to overcome homelessness, addiction and poverty. Serving entails preparing the food for a meal and absorbing the cost. This is a great way for a family or group to do God’s work in our community!
