Exploring Our Churches
Mountain Area

Running along the spine of the Blue Ridge Mountains, linked by the Appalachian Trail and the Blue Ridge Parkway, the six counties of the Mountain Deanery have the blessings of a beautiful spring and fall, mild summers, and winter snows. The people include generations of Appalachian families and newcomers. There are eight churches, a summer chapel, and an Episcopal-Lutheran congregation.
