Your church can play an important role in Native Ministry.
We would love for you to designate one Sunday in your church calendar as Native American Sunday, to share our Lutheran outreach to Native Americans, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians with your church.
It is through support through dedicated churches, like yours, that we can reach more Natives with the hope of Jesus Christ.
We look forward to partnering with you to PROCLAIM the Gospel of Jesus Christ with Native American peoples, DISCIPLE Native leaders to share the Gospel with their brothers and sisters, and to provide resources for the HEALING of social sufferings while valuing Native culture.
Below are pieces you can use to ensure a successful and meaningful Native American Sunday or Ministry of the Month program. Feel free to browse the list of resources and choose the print-ready materials that fit your needs.
Thank you for your interest in Native American Sunday, in partnership with Lutheran Indian Ministries.
