GET INVOLVED


Become a Member

Those interested in becoming members of Montview attend what we call an “Inquirer’s Class.” The class is an opportunity to explore becoming a member of Montview. It is held on either a Wednesday evening or Saturday morning for 3 ½ hours. It provides an opportunity to get to our Pastors, Clover and Ian, as well as Sandy, our Director of Children and Family Ministries.

Yes, we hope you will attend a class to learn about Montview and meet others. However, it you have extenuating circumstances, please contact Ian cummins@montview.org

The class begins with some time to get to know one another, think about our own faith journeys and consider what led us to Montivew.

Throughout the class, we learn more about the Montview community, our ministry and the larger context of the Presbyterian Church.

The class concludes with a Q&A period, during which we can provide further details for those who decide to join.

Call the church office at 303-355-1651 ext. 106, and the office staff will mail you a Inquirer’s packet that will provide details on the class.

Contact the office staff at 303-355-1651 with the name of your previous church, and they will arrange for your membership to be transferred to Montview if possible.

Yes you can join Montview. On joining Sunday, you will be baptized during the service. Co-pastors will meet with you separately to discuss the sacrament of baptism.

Yes, staff members who work with Montview’s children on Sunday mornings are there to care for children during the new member class and you’re welcome to attend to your children’s needs at any time during that time.

From the Sunday after Labor Day through the middle of May, we have services at 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. During the summer, we have one service at 10 a.m. (begins May 21).
