Maggie Valley

United Methodist Church

Our Story

Welcome to Maggie Valley United Methodist Church!

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 the former Ghost Town in the Sky and across from Joey’s Pancake House, Maggie Valley UMC celebrated this great anniversary in 2018.
