Alpine Abbey

New Meadows - McCall


We gather weekly at 10:30 AM for the traditional liturgy at our New Meadows United Methodist Church location. It's casual, yet traditional.
We will also soon be gathering intermittently in and around McCall for Theology on Tap, campfire-story gatherings, home-dinner church, church on the trails, and other such "outside-the-box" opportunities.


Alpine Abbey is the new expression of the New Meadows United Methodist Church. As we are the only expression of the United Methodist Church in the West Central Mountains, we knew we needed to expand our footprint. The region is changing. The needs are changing. Many of our neighbors barely knew we existed, if at all. Well, the time is right. In the Christian tradition, death allows for resurrection, and this new expression is our resurrection story.

Faithful Love



To foster disciples of Jesus Christ, a community, and a movement that radically loves humanity and creation, embodies justice, and walks humbly with God.
To be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ in the West Central Mountains by:
Being a community that embraces faithful love, seeks justice, and walks humbly with our God (Micah 6:8) 
Being an organization that blesses our neighbors so that not just survive, but thrive
We celebrate God’s gift of diversity and value the wholeness made possible in community equally shared and shepherded by all. We welcome and affirm people of every gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, who are also of every age, race, ethnicity, physical and mental ability, level of education, and family structure, and of every economic, immigration, marital, and social status, and so much more. We acknowledge that we live in a world of profound social, economic, and political inequities. As followers of Jesus, we commit ourselves to the pursuit of justice and pledge to stand in solidarity with all who are marginalized and oppressed.
Misfit Minister: Rev. Jon Umbdenstock

Pastoral Leadership

Why Misfit? Rev. Jon does not cleanly fit into a box. Just look at the selected picture! People relate to authenticity. Rev. Jon does not believe in creating a persona for the role but rather meeting folks where they are by being who he is. He finds connection to God via creativity and adrenaline. Rev. Jon studied theology, Methodism, and sexuality in antiquity at the Divinity School at Duke University.

This is a small community and only has one person on "staff," but we have a group of committed folks that keep this community thriving!
