April 25 – NATIVE AMERICAN MINISTRIES SUNDAY
Native American Ministries Sunday is observed on the second Sunday after Easter. This Sunday serves to remind the Church of the gifts and contributions made by Native Americans to our society. The Iowa annual conference keeps 50% of the receipts to develop and strengthen Native American ministries within the conference. The conference committee on Native American ministry administers these funds. The other 50% of the receipts provides scholarships for Native Americans attending United Methodist and other approved schools of theology. Your gift empowers local spiritual development and educates Native American seminary students to serve God faithfully.
***Please designate your offering to its intended purpose, i.e., General Fund, Building Fund, Missions, etc. by writing your instructions on your check or ‘giving envelope’. Offerings not designated will go to the General Fund.
Why do I need a Will? Preparing a Will is essential. Leaving a clear guide of how you want your assets distributed by your chosen executor/s is cost efficient and may avoid lengthy court battles over “who gets what”. Dying interstate (without a Will) means there is no guarantee that your assets will be distributed as you would like them to be.
