June 17th A.M. – Church Support Ministries (CSM) -  Aboriginal Ministry: As a denomination, we are committed to meeting the needs of people doing local ministry; listening better and hearing more from our churches; and following the leading of God in the work we do together. The congregational services ministries seek to partner with your church and help you partner with your community and other churches as you respond to God's call to go out and love.

The Aboriginal Ministry is made up of a national committee (Canadian Aboriginal Ministry Committee), three Urban Aboriginal Ministries, and a Justice and Reconciliation Mobilizer, each using their strengths to support healing and reconciliation between Aboriginal peoples and non-Aboriginal people in Canada. It is rooted in a recognition of our Creator’s love for all creation and in the understanding that we all have gifts to offer one another.
