The last Sunday of worship at Ober Gatlinburg is March 13! Easter and the first Sunday of worship in the campgrounds is March 27! Smoky Mountain Resort Ministries’ worship settings will move from a snow covered outside mountain top to campground recreation halls. Instead of a 6:45 a.m. employee donut devotional for arriving ski resort employees, we will gather at a much more respectful 9:00, 10:00, and 11:00 for worship times. In the campgrounds, we will add the piano music of Martha Line and have many more musical options.   The contrasts between the worship settings are extreme.

However, there are several great constants in both settings and in both styles of worship gatherings:

The love of God, the grace of Jesus Christ, and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit are real outdoors and indoors.

The guidance, comfort, and challenge of the Holy Scriptures is accurate for our lives.

The beauty of the Church is made real as God’s people gather to offer praise to God!

And Bill, Jessie, Martha, and other volunteers remain excited to be leaders in the worship expressions of Smoky Mountain Resort Ministries.   Thanks be to God!
