Native American Ministries Sunday set for April 26
The 2020 Native American Ministries Sunday celebration is scheduled for April 26, but congregations can observe this Special Sunday on a date that is convenient for them. This special giving day highlights the gifts and contributions of Native Americans.
Many United Methodist churches are using online technology to increase their visibility and to provide a convenient way to minister to their congregation. Therefore, churches are encouraged to conduct Native American Ministries Sunday celebrations online.
One secure method of giving to Native American Ministries Sunday online is to donate at umcgiving.org/giveNAMS. Contributions to Native American Ministries Sunday should be sent to the conference treasurer.
