Observed on the third Sunday (April 19, 2015) of Easter and celebrates 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.
Fairhaven UMC will have some prayers, and a special collection that will help support the education of Native Americans who wish to enter the ministry.
When you support Native American Ministries Day, 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.
