Middlesettlements United Methodist Church was founded in 1796. It is one of the oldest churches in East TN. The history within the middlesettlements community is rich and very interesting.
Our church is made up of some of the most caring Christian people. We know we are biased on that, but none-the-less sincere. We would love to talk to you more about our church. Go to the "Contact Us" page on this website and drop us a note.

Rose Marie: Average attendance of the class is about 25 members/guests/visitors ranging from 40 to 60 years of age. The class, named in memory of Rose Marie Bryant, uses the Bible and other Christian resources in learning the truths and principles of the Scriptures and how to apply them to our lives. It has been said that if you don’t know where you are going, then any road will take you there. The goal of the Rose Marie class is to know not only where we are going, but to take the right road to get there. We care about each other and offer support and comfort whenever we know there is a need. We will laugh with you, cry with you and keep your special needs on our prayer list. Anyone and everyone is welcome. Members rotate as teachers.
