OMAHA, NEBRASKA -- A new stake center and a temple being built are only two of the markers of growth the LDS Church has seen in Nebraska in the last ten years.

President Gordon B. Hinckley has made three trips to Nebraska in the last decade. Church members were also involved in the "Mormon Trail" activities in 1996 and 1997. Being involved in the community, members also participated in an anti-casino movement, and were part of an effort that saw a constitutional ban on gay marriage put on election ballots.

This article looks at basic Church set-up ranging from the handling of tithing to the Church's lay clergy. It also mentions the Far West convergance of Latter-day Saint pioneers on their way to Utah.

There are now approximately 18, 600 members of the Church in Nebraska. Papillon Stake President E. Louis Butler says, "We're not on our way to Salt Lake anymore. With the advent of our temple, we look to the future. We want to leave a legacy of honesty, integrity, truth, service and community citizenship so those who follow us can look back at this time and say that we did well."
