Native American Ministries Hosts Special Worship at Pine Log Campground


Sunday, May 4th, 2014 was Native American Ministries Sunday. The day before this supportive offering, the Committee of Native American Ministries hosted its first Native American event at Pine Log Campground.

Attendees gathered in Rydal, Georgia for coffee and fellowship before a unique worship service in the outdoor sanctuary. All were welcomed to witness elegantly woven prayers and rituals of Native American and Christian tradition.

It was a morning of uplifting songs and educational sharing of stories that ended in all attendees participating in a Native American dance. Afterwards, guests were invited to lunch in Pine Log UMC’s fellowship hall

The Native American Ministries is a group of pride and enthusiasm. They hope to engage more of their North Georgia Conference family during their continued relationship with Pine Log UMC. Representative Mike Shearon hopes the number of attendees grows each here, cultivating the special occasion.

Rydal is a place filled with Native American history. A day spent there, honorably appreciating its background is a special one.
