Getting to Know You . . .

The mission of IMN is not just denominational ecumenism, it is also about the community and individual churches. In an effort to get to know the churches in Nebraska and help you come to know more about IMN, our ministry and mission, we would like to host conversations in your community and in your congregation. IMN will provide the refreshments and the speaker.

We have an excellent PowerPoint presentation about Interchurch Ministries of Nebraska and we can bring representatives from one or more of our partner organizations such as Nebraska Interfaith Power and Light, Yellow Ribbon, the Nebraska State Suicide Prevention Coalition, Lincoln Peacemakers Coalition, and the Rural Response Council and Rural Response Hotline.

We are just waiting for an invitation from you. Please call our Executive Director, the Rev. Jerry Albright, or email Jerry at jerry@imneb.org.
