Rev. Sarah Merchant

As a native of the Rocky Mountains, growing up in Wyoming and serving in Colorado, Pastor Sarah is excited to live, serve and play in the Big Sky of Montana. She joined the Stevensville UMC community July 2019.

Pastor Sarah enjoys discovering the on-ramps and ministry opportunities vibrant at SUMC. She loves the surprises of worship and the creative movement of the Holy Spirit.  She also values the work done through mission trips, time spent in small group studies and conversations, and caring for those experiencing illness and loss. Some on-ramps to know the Holy come in collaboration and support of the Stevensville community and Bitterroot Valley.  God is at work in enlivening ways in this place and through the people of the church.  It is a gift to join that Spirit alive, calling and nurturing, empowering and healing all of us.

Pastor Sarah enjoys spending time with her family. Mac is a caring companion and collaborative pianist.  Lydia is an energetic toddler who loves to play outside.  Spencer is a spunky baby who loves to laugh with his sister. Pastor Sarah also likes to run, read, write, take pictures, and sing along to musical theater soundtracks.
