Our Story

Read our August Newsletter here!

We thank Pastor Susan Giles for her time as Interim Pastor at Maggie Valley UMC!

We  welcome Rev. Cole Altizer and his wife Lindsay to Maggie Valley UMC!


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.

Our Pastor

Rev. Cole Altizer

Rev. Cole Altizer is serving Maggie Valley United Methodist Church as our new pastor!

7.29.20 — Wednesday Word

Choose GRATITUDE over resentment today! Luke 15, the story of the “Prodigal Son,” reminds us that we can choose to move towards gratitude instead of division, rejection, pain, hurt and resentment. Today, choose gratitude — it’s like a superpower and we could use some more superhero’s today! 🙏😊💙
