Mt. Calvary Community Church is located at 5112 Ames Avenue. It was founded in 1933 and continues today as one of Omaha’s oldest African American congregations. Opened by a penniless preacher named Rev. Roy W. Johnson and his wife Ethel Lee Johnson in the Near North Side neighborhood, this church has blossomed and sustained since. After building the above church on their own in 1937, the congregation continued growing further.
In 1983, they became known as the “church on the hill” when they moved to 5112 Ames Avenue, where the congregation continues today.
