We rejoice in the presence of guests and visitors each week and we regularly offer opportunities to learn more about our faith community and ministries.

If you are interested in learning more about membership at Kountze Memorial, please contact the church office at 402-341-7761, via email at, or speak with one of the pastors.

New Member classes (two sessions on successive weeks) are held throughout the year. The classes start with a light lunch at noon in Fellowship Lounge, following the 11 a.m. worship service. The classes last approximately 2 hours. Pastors and staff orient newcomers to our congregation and review basic information about the Lutheran heritage. Childcare is available.   

Following completion of the new member classes, new members are welcomed into our congregation during worship by affirmation of baptismal vows, followed by a special reception at the Adult Forum in Fellowship Hall at 10:00 a.m.
