This year, Aboriginal Ministry Sunday is on June 18th. This year's theme is covenant, calling us to remember both the treaties signed by Aboriginal peoples and other Canadians and the 30th anniversary of the New Covenant Declaration.
Aboriginal Ministry Sunday provides an opportunity for everyone in Canada to learn more about Aboriginal peoples, their cultures and to celebrate the gifts and richness that Aboriginal people bring to life in Canada. The CRC dedicates one Sunday both to recognize National Aboriginal Day and to celebrate the Aboriginal Ministry of the CRC. Bulletin covers and inserts dedicated to CRC Aboriginal Ministry are available by request at www.faithaliveresources.org/aboriginal for use in conjunction with this national celebration. Please order these materials by May 1 to allow sufficient time to mail them to you.
In addition to the bulletin inserts, visit the Canadian Aboriginal Ministry Committee's website to find a prayer, litany, and Sunday school lesson plan for Aboriginal Ministry Sunday. We hope you and your congregation are blessed and challenged by these worship resources! May Creator God and his Spirit equip us to live in right relationships with each other.
