2023 Updates
In June (4, 18, 25), Janet Speer presents three sessions on the legacy of Edgar Tufts and Dr. W.C. Tate in the early years of our church’s history and ministry for youth and adults in a combined setting.

During the months of July, August and September, various leaders will be using Adam Hamilton’s study “When Christians Get It Wrong” and another study on “The Lord’s Prayer”.

Elementary age SS class learn about our early history on June 18 and 25. NO SS for children and youth from July 2-August 13.

August 13 is the “Back to School Bash” with special blessings during worship; in the Fellowship Hall, food, fun, and games will follow the 11:00am worship service. SS for children and youth re-starts on August 20 (10:00-10:45 until September 2, when we return to 9:30-10:30 for SS).

Women’s Study: On Thursdays from 11:00am-noon, August 17- September 12, Julie LaGrone will be leading a women’s study using The Red Sea Rules by Robert J. Morgan.  We will meet in the upstairs adult SS classroom. Since the preschool is having their day camp program from 9-1 each weekday, please use the office door to enter the building. Each participant will be responsible for purchasing her own book. These are available at the Cornerstone Book Store in Boone or from Amazon. It is also available for Kindle.  Questions?

Church Camp Scholarships

The Christian Education Committee of Banner Elk Presbyterian Church is pleased to offer a $100 scholarship per child annually to members of BEPC so that they may attend a church camp. While we do have limited funds, we hope to honor each request so that many of our young people will enjoy a camp experience this year. Download the Camp Scholarship Request Form and return to our church office at least two weeks prior to the beginning of camp.
