Lord of Life Lutheran Church would like our Skyline Ranches Neighbors to know the details of our master plan:
- The goal of the master plan is to foster the impact of our Lord of Life community and ministries across a growing Elkhorn while remaining rooted in our history and presence in Skyline Ranches.
- Construct an addition to the north of a new, larger sanctuary to accommodate current and future congregation growth. The current 150 seat sanctuary is at capacity and a new space for worship of 400 would allow Lord of Life ministries to flourish for years to come.
- Construct a two-story addition to the northeast that would house a fellowship hall and redesigned Lord of Lambs Childcare within the lower level walk-out. The fellowship hall would be sized to compliment the seating capacity of the new sanctuary and accommodate special events. The walk-out level childcare would improve the quality of space for both children and staff with increased safety, improved access to natural light and outdoor spaces and appropriately sized classrooms for the current enrollment.
- There are a number of spaces that would be remodeled and updated to meet the needs of today and the future for the kitchen, offices and meeting rooms.
- The number of parking stalls will meet the requirements of the City of Omaha and be screened with landscaping accordingly along the property lines.
In order to build in 2 to 4 years, we will seek an amendment to the existing Conditional Use Permit from the City of Omaha Planning Board to allow expansion of the existing church. This hearing will take place on July 6, 2022 at 1:30 p.m. in the Legislative Chambers (LC Level) of the Omaha/Douglas Civic Center, 1819 Farnam Street, Omaha, Nebraska. We will also list the hearing information on our website. If you have any questions you are welcome to email
Pastor David Linkugel, PastorDavid@lordoflifeelkhorn.org
or Pastor Caleb Kruse, PastorCaleb@lordoflifeelkhorn.org .
You are also welcome to call them at 402.289.3437.
