can happen


Whether it's the Welcome Table on Thursday nights, a mission to Latvia thousands of miles away, or working on a local Habitat for Humanity Home, the people of 1st United Methodist Church are called to serve as the hands and feet of Christ both here at home and around the world.   

Two of our largest ministries are the Welcome Table and Celebrate Recovery.  Both happen here at the church building, but are helping people all across Maryville and Blount County.   

1st UMC is once again lending a hand to build another Habitat for Humanity home,  something the church has been doing for more than 20 years.  The latest build is in Alcoa and is being done in partnership with the Maryville District of the UMC. 

The recent wildfires in Sevier County have weighed heavy on the hearts of people at 1st UMC.  People here have been collecting supplies, donating money,  spending time volunteering and praying for all those affected by this disaster.   Two members recently spoke to Rev. Catherine Nance about how easy it is to volunteer and help provide relief.
