Our pastor had arranged a retreat with a senior social group in Gatlinburg. Three houses out of the seven houses we had booked burned in the fire, and the largest one was where we were going to conduct singing/preaching and cooking. So, he called the Methodist church since we are Methodist and asked if we could use their facilities, and... More

Historical church overlooking the city of Gatlinburg. It sits on the side of the hill as if keeping watch over the city. Beautiful historical church that overs two services on Sunday morning.

We have attended this church once a year for the last 20+ years. It is a very beautiful and quaint church constructed with native stone and huge rough hewn timbers. It is the members of this congregation that make the church. They are very welcoming and pleased to greet and see us year after year.
