Just came across your query last night so I did a little browsing for you. I have a list of various church repositories that a friend made up and it shows the following for the Reformed Church:
Philip Schaff Library at the Lancaster Theological Seminary in Lancaster, PA. Doing a GOOGLE search on this name, I came up with the following URL link:
They may have what you want.
Secondly, the Gardner Sage Library at the New Brunswick Theological Seminary in New Brunswick, NJ. I did a GOOGLE search on this library and came up with many, many links. You can do this yourself.
Have you considered the more recent history of the Reformed Church? In 1934, The Reformed Church in the United States united with The Evangelical Synod of North America and became the Evangelical and Reformed Church (E & R). Then in 1957, the E & R Church united with the General Council of the Congregational Christian Churches and formed the United Church of Christ (UCC). Therefore, your old German Reformed Church records may be in a local United Church of Christ. I ran into this when my 19th century German ancestors' Evangelical Church records ended up in a United Church of Christ in Skokie, IL.
Are there any UCC churches in your Tennessee area of interest?
As far as Lutheran churches are concerned, my friend's list (which may be outdated) shows a Lutheran Archives Center in Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania Synod, Lutheran Theological Seminary, Gettysburg, PA. You could do a GOOGLE search on these and see what comes up.
Good Luck! L. Salyards
