Many United Methodist churches are using online technology to increase their visibility and to provide a convenient way to minister to their congregation. While traditionally celebrated after Easter, we recognize that it may not be realistic for all churches to observe Native American Ministries this year on April 26. We encourage you to find a time that works for your congregation. We have assembled a collection of resources that you can download to promote this Special Sunday.
Giving to Native American Ministries Sunday online is secure and easy. Please encourage your congregation to give online at UMCgiving.org/giveNAMS or mail checks to: Native American Ministries Sunday - GCFA, P.O. Box 340029, Nashville, TN 37203. You may also use this opportunity to launch your church's online giving. Contributions to Native American Ministries Sunday should be sent to your annual conference treasurer.
As you plan your worship service, please use the digital resources to enhance your Native American Ministries Sunday celebration. You will find children’s activities, youth guides and adult questions to be used at home as well as videos, offertory talks, liturgies, bulletins, sermons and more that can be incorporated into online worship. If you are not worshiping together online, we have created blog copy that can be used to encourage and remind your congregation of the ministry efforts in support of Native American Ministries Sunday.
Thank You...!for your generosity in 2019!!! You gave $541,784 towards the ministries funded by the Native American Ministries Sunday offering.
