Pastor Scott McKirdy

Welcome to Spearfish United Methodist Church! I have been serving as pastor of this congregation since July 2011. I was born and raised as a preacher’s kid here in the Dakotas, so there is virtually no corner of the Dakotas that is not familiar to me. This gives me a great perspective of who we are as a congregation and how we fit into the ministries going on here in the Dakotas.

If you don’t know who we are yet, I want to encourage you to explore both this website and our live activities. We are a powerfully intergenerational congregation with brand new babies and going all the way up to 101 years right now. It is our gift and our strength. There is something going on around here with every age. We are a church powerfully engaged in both worship and mission. You are invited to come in to join us for worship and learning, but then immediately invited to go out into our community and world to engage your faith as together we seek to create the Kingdom of God.

Why are we here as a church? To “Know God. Love God. Serve Others.” SO THAT…. We can become disciples of Jesus Christ transforming our world!
