Please pray for the family of the Rev. Dennis Reese, who passed away on May 7. In March, he was hospitalized for health concerns not related to COVID-19. Reese was an elder in the Mountain Sky Conference and was serving full-time at First United Methodist Church in Cañon City, Colorado. Prior to being appointed to First UMC in Cañon City in 2019, he served several United Methodist churches in Montana that included Lakeside, Christ in Great Falls, Shelby, Superior, and Alberton. Reese also served on the Conference Board of Pension and Health Benefits.

In addition to pastoring, Reese was active in the “Walk to Emmaus” community for many years sharing inspirational stories about the power of God’s grace. He loved mentoring and empowering young people and chaired the legacy Yellowstone Conference Camping program for six years, supported Youth With A Mission (YWAM) and his church youth groups.
