Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors.

Church of the Mountains UMC is called to be a welcoming community and be a beacon of  God's love.  Our doors are open to everyone.  Feel free to come as you are.  You are welcome here.

The Church of the Mountains Campus is a Historical Landmark designated by the Nevada County Historical Landmarks Commission (see 2024 application below). The Church of the Mountains has been located on Church Street (named for the Church family) since 1869 as one of the first two churches in Truckee. Today, our visible steeple with a McShane bell, remains an integral part of Truckee’s historic downtown district. Church of the Mountains is Truckee’s oldest church, and only church in Truckee operating at its original location. The original 1889 church bell still rings today.
