NATIVE AMERICAN MINISTRIES SUNDAY

Article

Observed on the Third Sunday of Easter, this Sunday celebrates the Church of the gifts, contributions and ministries offered by and with Native Americans to our Church and society. It was first celebrated in 1989 as Native American Awareness Sunday. United Methodists are encouraged to celebrate Native American Ministries Sunday in consultation with representatives of the Native American community in their region. Such a service should respect the traditions of the native peoples, and may be a service of repentance and reconciliation between indigenous and immigrant peoples.
