History

In October 2013, Countryside was asked by the Episcopal Diocese of Nebraska to enter into a dialogue of being part of the Tri-Faith in Omaha, NE.  Then in April 2014, the Episcopal Diocese of Nebraska asked Countryside to become the Christian presence of the Tri-Faith Initiative and to move to the Tri-Faith Commons.   At a Congregational meeting on May 4, 2014, Countryside approved moving forward  with a 40-day period to discover, discuss, explore, and pray over this invitation and discern if Countryside is being called to become the Christian presence of the Tri-Faith Initiative.
On June 29, 2014, Countryside authorized the Church Council and its designees to undertake whatever additional steps are necessary to determine the potential costs and implications of relocating Countryside to the Tri-Faith Commons, as well as what resources are available to cover the costs. April 12, 2015 the church voted to relocate the church from 87th and Pacific to the Tri-Faith Initiative area behind the Sterling Ridge development off 132nd and Pacific. On April 10, 2016, Countryside launched its Relocation Campaign and shared design plans for the new building.
