6-Week Advent & Christmas 2021 Zoom Book Study

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.

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.
