Welcome to  

        Maggie Valley UMC






Our Story

We welcome you!  Over one hundred and fifty years ago, a small congregation of faithful Christians built the first sanctuary and public school in Maggie Valley. Today, our vital congregation continues its original priorities with all the people in the valley: Worship and Service.

The Methodists built their first log building along the banks of Jonathan Creek. Still at this same location, now below Cataloochee Ranch and Ski Area and the former Ghost Town in the Sky and across from Joey’s Pancake House, Maggie Valley UMC celebrated this great anniversary in 2018.

“Surviving the Holidays” classes

The holiday season will soon be upon us.  In these coming days, you are going to experience some tough emotions. With its focus on family, yearly traditions, expectations, social events and “cheer”, emotions can blindside you.  You can lessen the emotional impact by knowing what to expect and being prepared.  With others who understand what you might be going through, you will watch a video, be part of a discussion group, and receive a Survival Guide with daily encouragement and helpful information for the days ahead.

November 19, 10 am-Noon
November 22, 1:00-3:00 pm
November 30, 6:00-8:00 pm
December 11, 2:00-4:00 pm
