Columbia Falls UMC celebrated 125th Anniversary!  On July 31, 2017 Columbia Falls United Methodist Church had a wonderful worship with guest preacher Bishop Karen Oliveto as part of an entire weekend of celebration events …Luci Yeats, lay historian, led a team for approximately a year to gather history and translate it to the present life of the church. Her team reached out to former pastors, to friends, and members both past and present to encourage people to attend.

In faith, we witnessed to thousands in the street on Saturday from our float during the Columbia Falls’ Heritage Days parade, over 200 during an ice cream social, 18 on Saturday night during our vespers service, and 98 on Sunday morning during worship. Following worship, we celebrated with a brunch and program that highlighted ministries of the past and present, and recognized individuals active in ministry for over 60 years.
