United Tribes has a special, but not widely recognized, connection with “All Nations Assembly of God Church.” The name alone suggests a bond with people at the college.
For several years the church and its members have been behind the scenes, making it part of their mission to pray for the campus community and all who attend school and work here.
Last summer the relationship entered a new phase. The church building, at Washington Street and 48th Avenue South (three miles southwest of the campus), was inundated and damaged by Missouri River floodwater that remained for many weeks. With no place to hold services, they came to UTTC for help. The college responded generously and for eight months All Nations members assembled comfortably in the college’s Jack Barden Center.
Now, with the building repaired and the congregation back in their building, they gladly returned the favor with a $500 donation the United Tribes “Opportunities in the Making” Scholarship Fund.
The donation was made June 19 by Pastor Gordon Williams and represents the deep appreciation the congregation feels for United Tribes for the kindness shown to them during their time of need.
All Nations plans to offer another church service on the campus soon; it’ll be held Sunday, September 9 on the last day of the United Tribes Powwow.
