Sharing God's love to the people of the Eastern Sierra

Bishop First UMC * Big Pine Community UMC * Pioneer Memorial UMC (Independence)

Three Churches - One Mission

Downslope from the majestic Sierra lie three churches established by Methodist Circuit Riders.  Since 1871, these churches, spread along the Owen's Valley, have been living into our mission of  open minds, open hearts, and open doors.  True to our pioneer roots, we are people who value community, individuality, and inclusivity.  We recognize that what makes each person unique also makes them valuable and this diversity adds to the overall health and wellbeing of both our church and our community.  We are a group of people, all at different places on our spiritual journey, gathering together to learn, question, and walk in the footsteps of Christ. 

Here questions are encouraged, burdens are shared, and there is always enough food to go around. 

You are welcome here!
