    The secret things really do belong to the Lord


    “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever” (Deuteronomy 29:29).

    We have lived in Caryville all of our lives. We are proud to say we live here and love all the people. When you come south on I-75 and top Teinnold hill and see the mountains, Cove Love Park and Caryville you can say it is the garden spot of the world.
