Hebrews 11:29-12:2 | Luke 12:49-56

Yielding Wild Grapes

What if we celebrate the church by featuring what happens outside the church? What if we lift up ministry that may be happening in small ways throughout our neighborhood, or city, or world? What if we take time to point out that the church is wherever the congregation is and does whatever it is each member does?

Come join us...

11th Sunday of Pentecost

   Jeremiah 1:4-10 | Psalm 71:1-6
Hebrews 12:18-29 | Luke 13:10-17

I Knew You

We’re back on more comfortable ground this week. Here we have the promise of presence. Supposedly, John Wesley’s final words were “best thing of all, God is with us.” We love to celebrate that God is with us and we are not alone. That is a powerful message at any time of the year.

Come join us...

We Aim to be Open and Welcoming
Even to the Smallest People...

In the back of the sanctuary, we have children's bulletins, paper, crayons, and books for children to use during worship.


We also have a moment in worship that is child-friendly called "Wondering Time." Anyone who wishes to get a closer view during our time to wonder about things is welcome to come sit on the front pew.


Whether you label yourself a "Christian," or are uncertain whether you believe in anything anymore, you are welcome to worship at Green Meadow United Methodist Church. Single, married, partnered, divorced, gay, rich, poor, USAmerican, or immigrant, you are welcome here. Burned out on religion -- whether organized or disorganized -- bedraggled and hungover, addicted or in recovery, just out of jail, 

you are welcome here. Have no idea about Holy Communion, hymnals, or when to stand or sit? Don't worry, we all have to begin somewhere. The most important thing is to begin.

We're glad you're here!

We are a United Methodist Community of Worship, serving in the Smoky Mountain District of the Holston Conference. Our mission is to be an open gathering place to nurture Christians in training who, equipped by the Holy Spirit, go into the world and share the light of Jesus Christ.

Whether it's building mission kits for flood victims, sending food buckets to Zimbabwe, working with Family Promise of Blount County, helping the Salvation Army's lunch ministry, or gathering peanut butter for the Community Food Connection, "Meadow Folk" are engaged in the missio Dei ... God's mission of love.


Sunday mornings at Green Meadow are, in a way, much of what you would expect when you come to a United Methodist Church: we gather for Sunday School and we worship together. We also share a breakfast once a month, and in months where we have a fifth Sunday, we have a potluck dinner.
