Native American Ministries Sunday - Overview
Your GIFT TODAY . . . Empowers Local Spiritual Development and Educates Native American Seminary Students to Serve God Faithfully.
“The group is very diverse, and all of our events are open to any who want to share with Native Americans their culture and deep Christian spirituality.”
“Lots of urban Native Americans have lost connection with their culture, language and even identity, by choice or force,” says the Rev. Robert Pierce, Texas Annual Conference Committee on Native American Ministries chair.
To help counteract that loss, the Texas Annual Conference Committee on Native American Ministries introduced the Third Sunday Fellowship six years ago. On the third Sunday each month, Native Americans gather to worship in Houston to share their love for God.
CONNECTING RESULTS IN UNITED WORSHIP
Native Americans worship God as they honor their heritage with a rotation of primarily Native American pastors. Musicians and the congregation sing traditional hymns in Native languages.
“We provide a safe place where people are understood and accepted,” says Rose Brewer, a CONAM member. “People find solace,” adds Brewer. “They really enjoy being in community with one another.”
Your financial gift empowers local outreach and educates Native American seminary students to serve God faithfully. The United Methodist Native American Ministries Sunday offering also helps preserve a rich cultural heritage. Thank you for your generous gift.
Native American Ministries Sunday reminds United Methodists of the contributions made by Native Americans to our society. The special offering benefits Native American outreach within annual conferences and across the United States and provides seminary scholarships for Native Americans.
