Welcome to Banner Elk Presbyterian Church

Special Winter announcement: During the Winter months, BEPC will continue to have the 11:00 AM worship service, despite the “snowy” weather. Come worship with us when your church is closed!!

Front of Church During EasterThe Banner Elk Presbyterian Church was organized in 1893 and is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church USA. We have approximately 220 members, and have a congregation with varied backgrounds, experiences and from many different denominations. Members include affiliates who are with us for the summer. We range from very conservative to very liberal members; we attempt to focus on what unites us, to learn from one another. We are mostly a retirement community with a liberal arts college on our doorsteps. We have a specific worship ministry focused toward the students of Lees-McRae College, and to the children of a nearby children’s ministry, Grandfather Home for Children. We have an outstanding music program, and the ministry of music is a vital aspect of our worship. We welcome and are honored by the presence of each visitor - that presence is more important than mode of dress.

“Calling all people to a personal acceptance of and a growing relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior”

We are blessed by the many seasonal residents who support our ministries with offerings.  The BEPC Session carefully and responsibly administers them for a growing number of mission needs in the community and abroad.

If you would like to learn more about how to get involved or to become a member, please talk to the pastor or one of our Elders.  We receive new members by profession of faith with baptism, reaffirmation of faith, or transfer of membership from another congregation.

If you are a seasonal resident, you might want to consider becoming an Affiliate Member, keeping your primary membership in the church where you spend most of the year.
