Here are a few things that you may want to know about the Cades Cove service Sunday, October 25th.

  • We will not be meeting in the building at Basswood Road.
  • We meet at 11:00 AM in the Cades Cove picnic area. The picnic area is to the left as you drive into the cove — before you begin the loop road.
  • Once everyone gets set up, we pray and eat — generally around 11:30-11:45. It’s helpful to bring lawn chairs as seating is limited.
  • Anything is fine for lunch, although there’s no way to warm things up there. Whatever you would normally take to a picnic lunch is perfect.
  • There are restrooms at the picnic area — this is always a concern for families with children.
  • When lunch is over — usually about 12:30 or so — we drive to the Primitive Baptist Church on the loop road. It’s on a little side road. You can see it on this map. You can always follow someone from the picnic area. There a no restrooms at the church.
  • Our service is brief — 45 minutes max.
  • Afterwards, people tend to hang around and visit around the church. Each year, many like to hike somewhere in the area, often together with other families.
  • Dress is casual — jeans are fine. Often, it’s cold, so some people bring quilts to cover up with during the service.
