Your Gift Empowers Local Spiritual Development and Educates Native American Seminary Students to Serve God Faithfully.



One tribe in North America has told this story for centuries: when people “pale as birch” crossed the great water in large canoes, they brought with them “The Black Book.”  However, the bringers of the physical Book could not have known what it would mean and look like to be Native and a follower of Jesus.  


Today Native Americans—with many unique languages, many unique cultures—honor their heritage, and live as Jesus-followers, led by a rotation of primarily Native American pastors.


Supporting the Ministry of Christ Among Native People

Most Americans today recognize that the history following the arrival of the large canoes bore little resemblance to the one all Christians identify as Creator. That’s why the people of The United Methodist Church, Native and non-Native, are creating a new history. Through Native American Ministries Sunday, we’re able to equip and empower Native American pastors, congregations and seminary students to do what only they can do: authentically worship and serve Jesus.


As a member of The United Methodist Church, your gift, on this day, equips Native congregations—like New York’s Onondaga Nation UMC and Nebraska’s Native American Sacred Winds congregation—to worship and serve as only they can.


This work, and hundreds of other ministries, are possible because you give.




Our Giving Allows Native Americans to Encounter, Worship and Serve Jesus

When you support Native American Ministries Sunday, you equip seminary students who will honor and celebrate Native American culture in their ministries. And you empower congregations that are finding fresh new ways to minister to their communities with the love of Christ.


Dr. Richard Twiss, a member of the Sicangu Lakota Oyate from the Rosebud Sioux Reservation in South Dakota, asked:

“Will we be allowed to develop new ways of doing church that honor God’s purposes for the creative expression of our cultures? Will new ministry partnerships and coalitions form? Will you help be a part of this wonderful process of reconciliation, restoration and release?”   

Say yes.


Please make checks or e-giving payable to CUMC with “NATIVE AMERICAN MINISTRIES” on the memo line.


Thank you for your generosity.



Beginning Sunday, April 11, 2021, we will have small (50 or less) worship services in the Sanctuary on Sunday mornings.


Please follow the guidelines as attached below.

Sunday School Ideas
1.  Listen to Pastor Roy’s children’s message each week - (Children’s message – posted on: and Will also be available on website). SPOILER ALERT - his adorable dog Cali is his co-star. :). 
2.  Putting rainbows in your window - a sign that we are all in this together.  Every time you see a rainbow on a walk, say a prayer for someone in need!
3.  Sending cards to others - 
- Grandparents, aunts, uncles, school friends - anyone!  People love getting cards.  
- Our Church Family - see the directory and pick a member, or 10 to send cards to:) 
- hospitals and nursing homes would prefer cards be emailed instead of mailed to prevent any possible contamination.  Here is an email for Catholic Health Services group of hospitals (St. Catherine’s and St. Charles in our area). 
I will send more if I get them, if anyone can add please do.  Snap a picture of your card and send it on.  
——St. Catherines and St. Charles - 
4.  Starbucks in Stonybrook has offered to accept mailed cards to post in their windows. Doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals must walk through this area to 
go to fight to save lives.  Starbucks wants to cover the whole window with cards.
