One of Maryville's biggest FREE events happens right here at 1st United Methodist Church. The Fall Festival at 1st is a time when the church reaches out to the community in a celebration of the season. More than a thousand people turn out each year for the event which features:
hot dogs, popcorn & cotton candy
...and much more
This year, everyone is asked to bring canned food items for the Food Connection of Blount County. Last year, more than 400 cans of food were collected during the event and we hope to collect at least double that this year! Several of the agencies and ministries the church supports will also be on hand to help you learn a bit more about them.
