From Pastor Kate Stulce:

Current Pastor of Columbus Community Church


I had a long career as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker before I trained for ministry, so I was coming up on my 69th birthday before I was ordained.  I had various opportunities as associate pastor, transitional interim and supply before I came to Columbus, MT, as settled pastor in 2021. With my 75th birthday coming up soon, my husband's 79th, and some family reasons to return to the south, I have regretfully resigned. Columbus is such a sweet, loving, welcoming congregation, and I just pray for someone to feel the call here as I did. I have just come from a clergy retreat offered by the Montana Northern Wyoming Conference. I salute them. There is a lovely bonus to this position as it is set in beautiful surroundings only 1 1/2 hours to Yellowstone National Park; fantastic hiking, camping, fishing, skiing, and many other attractions set in the gorgeous Beartooth mountains.
