Beaver Ridge is a welcoming community of people who are striving to live and love like Christ every day. This community welcomes everyone. Our doors are always open for those who wish to join us.

Sunday worship service is held on Sunday mornings at 10 am in the Sanctuary.  Immediately following Children's Time, children are dismissed to attend Children's Church which meets in our Family Life Center.

We have an active youth group which meets on Sunday mornings during the Sunday School hour for "Youth Chat" (8:45-9:45), as well as activities throughout the week.  We have programs and activities for every age group.

To learn more about our church, please call the church office at 865-690-1060.

Our Story

Our history is the story of the Karns community located in northwest

Knox County, Tennessee located near Beaver Creek. 

Beaver Ridge Church formed in 1815. 

As our community of Karns has grown so has Beaver Ridge Church.

We have been at the heart of Karns for over 200 years.
