In 1855, the Yakama people, along with 13 other tribes and bands, signed a treaty with the United States government which established the Yakama Reservation at the foot of Mt. Adams in south central Washington state. Since that time, the culture, families, and dreams of the Yakama people have steadily disintegrated.
Chris and Mary Granberry moved to the Yakama reservation in 2003 with the desire to love and serve our “first neighbors.” Sacred Road Ministries and Hope Fellowship Church have grown out of that desire. Sacred Road is sent by the Pacific Northwest Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in America to establish a dynamic, healthy church in the remote town of White Swan. The Sacred Road team reaches out to the community through: children’s ministry, youth ministry, a variety of acts of service and mercy, adult Bible study, hosting one week service teams, and more.
