NEW/ RECENT Happenings:

We had a fantastic Holy Week at TUMC!  The Maundy Thursday drama, communion and nailing our sins to the cross was very meaningful.  The Women of Faith held their best ever Bake Sale on Good Friday.  Saturday’s Children’s Easter Gathering found lots of joy and happy faces.  Our sunrise Easter service was attended by 68 worshipers amid wonderful weather and strong message from Rev. Janice Keebler.  This was followed by Easter breakfast prepared and served by the men of TUMC.  The 11:00AM EASTER Service included special music from the choir and coordination with Rev. Keebler on 3 distinct Resurrection themed messages.  A wonderful Easter Sunday!

On Sunday 2/04/24 we were blessed to hear the sermon and receive communion from Rev. Janice Keebler as our new interim pastor.  Please join us on future Sundays to participate in the joy of God’s message delivered by Rev. Janice Keebler.

On Sunday 1/28/24 we were blessed to hear a hopeful message from Rev. Susan Arnold from the Holston Conference of United Methodist Church.  Susan specializes in Congregation Development & Revitalization and plans to work with TUMC in its New Beginnings Initiative. We thank Susan for traveling from the Tri-Cities area to support our church.

If unable to attend in-person, we offer online services (usually live-streamed at 11:00 AM on Sunday mornings) at https://www.youtube.com/@tuckaleecheeumc9780

Tuckaleechee United Methodist Church hosts people from all over the world, especially during the summer months when there are people coming from all over the world to visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We welcome you to come as you are, drop in, and experience the warmth that the family of God offers to you!

Tuckaleechee UMC offers hope to people around the world. We have supported missions close to home through Second Harvest Food distributions, benevolence support for those in need of relief, Alcoholics Anonymous, Bible studies, and the Walk to Emmaus program. In addition, Tuckaleechee UMC offers a group called “Temple Keepers” which helps people who wish to be supported and held accountable on their way to healthier living in their spirit, mind, and body.

We have also supported the Holston United Methodist Home for Children in Greeneville, Tennessee, which offers homes to children who otherwise might not have stable homes. We have supported missions in Latvia, Liberia, Zimbabwe, South Sudan, and other parts of the United States.

Tuckaleechee United Methodist Church is part of the Holston Conference of the United Methodist Church.
