Four Corners Native American Ministry Winter Homeless Shelter
There are no other homeless shelters provided in the Shiprock area and every year there are a number of homeless relatives passing away from exposure even one is too many. Therefore, the Four Corners Native American Ministry heard the cry of the people and will be using their dorm area for the homeless relatives in the winter months from October to April till there is a shelter built and provided by the tribe. A petition was written, presented and approved by the Shiprock chapter house representatives. Meals will be served and hygiene products will be given to the relatives as they enter the shelter. Two doctors will check them out medically and will give covid tests as well. Read More: Four Corners Winter Homeless Shelter

Sharing God’s Love and Reconciliation with the Navajo Nation through Christ-Centered Congregational Development and Community Outreach

Since 1989, The United Methodist Church has observed the 3rd Sunday of Easter as Native American Awareness Sunday, intended to recognize the gifts and contributions of Native Americans to American society and the Christian church. Native American Awareness Sunday provides a prayerful opportunity for repentance and reconciliation between indigenous and immigrant peoples.

Special offerings on this Sunday, and at any time, will help fund NAM throughout the denomination. Four Corners Native American Ministries is endorsed by the General Board of Global Ministries of the UMC.
