Middle Creek UMC is proud to support these great ministries doing God’s work in our community and throughout the world. We invite you to join us in that support as you feel led.


Toby Wagner, a member of our congregation, has been proudly sober for nearly 10 years. Through his own recovery journey, Toby has seen the overwhelming need in Sevier County for a solution to the ever-growing drug and alcohol crisis plaguing our area. That’s when Recovery Trail was born.

Recovery Trail is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a safe living environment for those recovering from drug and alcohol addictions. While staying in the Recovery Trail house, participants will go through a required 12-step program, group sessions, and more to ensure the recovery experience is effective and life-changing. Toby and his team are still hard at work raising funds and support to make this dream a reality. We invite you to prayerfully consider joining us in support of this desperately-needed ministry.

The mission of the Navigators organization is “to know Christ, make Him known, and help others do the same™.” Middle Creek UMC proudly supports Katie Alexander, a member of the Navigators who works with the Collegiate Ministry at Auburn University leading small group Bible studies, spending time with students in one-on-one discipleship, and helping those students learn to apply the words of the Bible to their own lives.


If you’ve opened the nightstand in a hotel recently, you’ve seen the work of the Gideons. Founded in 1908, this organization works to provide Bibles to those who may not otherwise be touched by the Word of God. Over the last 100+ years, the Gideons have placed over 2 billion Scriptures in over 95 languages to over 200 countries. Middle Creek is proud to offer support and prayers to continue the mission of the Gideons across the globe.
