One of the special Sundays authorized by the General Conference to be observed annually throughout the denomination with an offering. Native American Ministries Sunday is to focus the attention of United Methodists on the gifts and contributions of Native Americans to our society and to our church. Of the funds received in the offering, one half remains within each Annual Conference for the building and strengthening of Native American ministries in the Conference. The remaining one half is to be used by the General Board of Global Ministries to expand the work for Native Americans in target cities in the United States.
