Biltmore Estate, Ashville, NC

Join us on a holiday trip to discover and venture through the Biltmore Estate in Ashville, NC. The Biltmore House was built for George Washington Vanderbilt II between 1889 and 1895 and is the largest privately-owned house in the United States. Still owned by George Vanderbilt's descendants, it remains one of the most prominent examples of Gilded Age mansions and is a historic museum and tourist attraction.

JOY Events

Whether it’s a women’s banquet, a local mission project or a seasonal gathering we assemble with joy year-round for special occasions that provide a great time for all. 


JOY Outreach & Special Projects

Throughout the year, through our resources, our participation and our prayers, we support missional causes within and outside the church.  We believe God still calls us to actively obey the Great Commission and Great Commandment and therefore we strive to serve Christ and others in our congregation, in our community and around the world.
