Welcome to MNC First

Thank you for visiting our site!   It is our prayer that you might know that God loves you and wants to have an intimate relationship with you.
We believe that church is more than a building or the programs that are offered. It is a community of people living life in relationship with the living God.  God is at work among the people who call MNC First home and we invite you and your family to join us as together we walk out what it means to follow Jesus in Montrose, Colorado.

100th Anniversary Celebration!
On February 18, 1917, the Montrose Nazarene Mission met for the first time in a small storefront on Cascade Avenue.   One hundred years later, the Montrose First Church of the Nazarene continues to proclaim the love of Jesus to the Montrose community. 
On Sunday, August 13th, we are celebrating our 100th
Anniversary and we would like to extend a special invitation for you to celebrate with us.

Our celebration will begin with coffee and donuts at 9:00 AM. A special Morning Service at 10:00 AM will feature Colorado District Superintendent David Ralph and Dr. Robert Broadbooks, who is a former pastor and currently serving as the USA/Canada Regional Director for the Church of the Nazarene. Our day will include an old-fashioned pot luck dinner and a surprise or two as well. 

This is an important day in our history and we desire your presence as we celebrate God’s blessings on this special day.   If you are not able to attend, we invite you to consider sending us your greetings and remembrances of your time at the church.

A RSVP is appreciated but not necessary and will assist us with our planning.  You may RSVP to the church office at 705 S 12th St Montrose, CO 81401.  If you have any questions or need further information, you may contact us at 970-249-9213 or by email at: office@montrosenazarenechurch.org.  We will also post updates on our web site


  We hope you can join us as we celebrate 100 years of being a “Loving, Growing Family of God”.

Donations for Haiti
If you would like to give toward the hurricane relief & recovery in Haiti, you can give online by clicking here and following the steps, or you can designate checks or cash in the church offering by marking them “Haiti.” There are many Nazarenes that have been affected by the hurricane, and by giving through Compassionate Ministries, we know they will receive the help they so desperately need. Please pray about giving to help the Haitian community recover from this terrible tragedy.
