Christmas at Banner Elk Presbyterian Church

This Advent & Christmas, we hope you’ll journey with us as we take steps to move closer to the home God envisions for us—a home filled with hope, peace, love, and joy. Are we there yet? No. But with Jesus’ help, we can get closer everyday. Theme: Close to Home

6-Week Advent & Christmas Zoom Book Study: Advent in Plain Sight, A Devotion through Ten Objects
Sundays at 7 PM, November 28-January 2. “Meet” on Zoom for study and discussion with different folks serving as facilitators each week. The book, Advent in Plain Sight by Jill J. Duffield, draws readers’ attention to ten ordinary objects that appear in the Biblical narratives of messianic prophesy and incarnation. Through focusing on these objects, we can see the near kingdom of heaven on earth and ponder what that divine proximity enables and asks us to do and be. A few more books are available for you to pick up a copy.  Contact Janet Speer for the Zoom link or Donna Dicks for questions.
