United Methodists will celebrate Native American Ministries on Sunday, April 18th. The special church wide offering supports scholarships for Native Americans attending United Methodist seminaries, urban ministries with Native Americans and annual conference Native American programs.
One tribe in North America has told this story for centuries: when people “pale as birch” crossed the great water in large canoes, they brought with them “The Black Book.” However, the bringers of the physical Book could not have known what it would mean and look like to be Native and a follower of Jesus.
Supporting the Ministry of Christ Among Native People
Most Americans today recognize that the history following the arrival of the large canoes bore little resemblance to the one all Christians identify as Creator. That’s why the people of The United Methodist Church, Native and non-Native, are creating a new history. Through Native American Ministries Sunday, we’re able to equip and empower Native American pastors, congregations and seminary students to do what only they can do: authentically worship and serve Jesus.
This work, and hundreds of other ministries, are possible because you give.
Our Giving Allows Native Americans to Encounter, Worship and Serve Jesus
When you support Native American Ministries Sunday, you equip seminary students who will honor and celebrate Native American culture in their ministries. And you empower congregations that are finding fresh new ways to minister to their communities with the love of Christ.
