United Methodist Sites
We are one of many annual conferences in the United States that comprise the United Methodist Church. Methodism began in the 1700’s with John and Charles Wesley in England, and today the United Methodist church is the second largest Protestant denomination in America. Bishop Elaine Stanovsky leads our conference. We are part of the Mountain Sky Area, made up of the Yellowstone Annual Conference and the Rocky Mountain Annual Conference. The Yellowstone Annual Conference is made up of 126 churches in Montana, northern Wyoming and a small section of Idaho with a total of 13,602 lay members. The Conference is divided into three districts: Western Mountains, Northern Plains and the Big Horn.
