Wildfire Crisis Response

As reported nationally, last November fires in Gatlinburg, Wears Valley and around Pigeon Forge devastated many families. Hundreds of homes and other buildings have been destroyed, and displacement and loss of personal items has hit hard.  We are helping families rebuild their lives from almost nothing.  Our church is available and committed to assist displaced and suffering individuals and families.


One way to assist in this relief effort is financially. See our donate page and select “Guest” and “Disaster Relief” fund.  Another option is to send a gift card (such as for fuel) designated for “relief ministry”.

First Baptist Church has partnered with Smoky Mountain Area Rescue Ministries (SMARM). Our church warehouse building is a depot for relief supplies: http://smarm.org

We are also networked with Sevier County Association of Baptists. Their Sevierville office is involved in channeling relief initiatives: http://seviercountybaptists.org
