Dear Church Leader:
Native American Ministries Sunday is almost here. Join with United Methodists on April 18, 2021, and celebrate our connection with Native Ministries. If you need easy-to-use ideas and resources, download the resources below.
- If your church has online giving, communicate your online giving information to the congregation or promote ResourceUMC.org/NAMS for online giving to this Special Sunday;
- present a mission story from the Native American Ministries’ Mission Moments and More (includes vignette about an offering recipient, scripture reading and offertory prayer) or use the Offering Talk provided in the Pastor and Leader kit before you receive the offering;
- lead the congregation in the Liturgy;
- remind your speaker to emphasize ideas from the Sermon Starter
- share the total offering received on this Special Sunday and thank the congregation for their generous gifts; and
- send the offering to your annual conference treasurer.
Please encourage your congregation to give generously on Native American Ministries Sunday. Your gifts support Native American outreach within annual conferences and across the United States, and scholarships for Native American seminarians.
