Since 1882 the United Methodist Church has had a continuous presence on the Blackfeet Reservation. The participants in the ministry and programs of the Blackfeet United Methodist Parish reflect the cultural and racial diversity of the larger community. Most of our members are connected to the Blackfeet Tribe by blood, marriage or occupation and are the bearers of much wisdom which comes from generations of the struggle for life with dignity.
