Our Story

Read our August Newsletter here!

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!

Wednesday Word — 9.2.20

It’s so much easier to remember the bad or negative things in our lives. It takes real work, real effort, to focus on the positive. I’m praying for us all that we might not ignore the hurt that is all-too-common, but that we will also choose to focus on the grace and love and joy of God that IS all around us.
