Native American Ministries Sunday:
  Native American Ministries Sunday is a special offering celebrated the third Sunday of Easter that nurtures mission with Native Americans and provides scholarships for United Methodist Native American seminarians.
  It allows our denomination to launch and strengthen Native American ministries, both urban and rural, and to recruit and prepare Native American pastors.
  Gifts to this fund reach throughout the United States. Many of the 20,000 Native Americans served are part of the Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference, but the ministry itself is far-reaching, from the tip of Florida to the top of Alaska.
  “We provide a children’s vacation Bible school experience Monday through Thursday in the summer. Receiving Native American Ministries Sunday funding through the Dakotas Conference is very important to the program, which provides a food pantry and clothing closet, VBS, and a cultural event for volunteer-in-mission teams. The cultural event also provides summer jobs for 15 Native Americans. Funding for these ministries is extremely important.”
