Rev. Shirley brings decades of church experience to MVUMC and will serve part-time as our new Assistant Pastor. Rev. Shirley will be responsible for working alongside Pastor Cole in general pastoral duties. He will serve in Sunday morning worship and help with the organization of the church as well. Mike will serve as the “pastor in charge” while Pastor Cole is out on Paternity Leave this summer. We are incredibly grateful for Mike and look forward to what God will do in and through he and Sue.
Erma Bond is the retired Associate Pastor of Maggie Valley UMC. Erma grew up in Maggie Valley and returned in 1996 and became the associate pastor. She has served faithfully for over twenty years overseeing many missions and ministries. Erma is indeed a pastor to the whole community.

The Missions at Maggie Valley United Methodist Church always need more helpers! If you can welcome guests, cook a meal, take out trash, clean up a room, wash dishes, organize food, pack a shoebox or have any other talents or gifts you’d like to share, come join us! We will help you find a way to serve within your ability and comfort level. Contact the Pastor or the church office (828-926-8036) for more information.
In September, we have sent Christmas shoeboxes through Project AGAPE to impoverished children in the eastern European area of Armenia. Project AGAPE is a collaborative effort of North Carolina United Methodists with the Armenian Apostolic Church.
