Reverend Gary Geiman, Pastor

Welcome and thank you for visiting the website for Hope United Methodist Church in Billings, Montana.  We invite you to consider visiting one of our regular worship services.

At Hope United Methodist Church we believe that as the beloved children of God, you and we and all people are of sacred worth.  We therefore strive to be an open and inclusive Christian community that attempts to model and practice extravagant hospitality.  We invite all people, without exception, to participate with us as fully as possible in our church's life, mission, and ministry to our community and the larger world.
