First Church is a community of open hearts seeking to be a force for God’s grace in the “heart” of Missoula’s downtown. We are an open minded congregation, respectful of each other yet unafraid of the issues of our time. And we are a church of open doors, welcoming a wide diversity of people to be a part of our congregation. For those who can’t manage our stairs, you will find the elevator just inside the back alley door. You will always find a place at First United Methodist Church!
