Rev. Susan Slye Giles is serving Maggie Valley United Methodist Church as our interim pastor. She retired this past August as Dean of Memorial Chapel at Lake Junaluska, a position she served for the past five years. She lives at Lake Junaluska with her husband Sandy. They enjoy traveling and spend lots of time walking around the lake enjoying the swans and geese. They have two adult children and three grandchildren who love to come to the mountains to visit Poppa and Gigi.
She has been inspired by the community outreach that is taking place at Maggie Valley UMC. The Food Pantry and Shepherd’s Table are just two of the amazing examples of living as faithful followers of Jesus and she is excited to walk along with us these next few months!
