One Great Hour of Sharing: Since 1949 Presbyterians have joined with millions of other Christians through One Great Hour of Sharing, to share God’s love with those in need. Your generous gifts assist those affected by natural disasters, provide food for the hungry and assist to help empower the poor and oppressed. Specifically, gifts to the One Great Hour of Sharing special offering support the following: Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, Presbyterian Hunger Program and Self-Development of People. This offering is normally received on Easter Day. This year, due to the COVID-19, our normal Sunday services have been suspended. You can still make a contribution made by mailing a check to BEPC with a notation for “One Great Hour of Sharing”. The mailing address is Banner Elk Presbyterian Church, P.O. Box 158, Banner Elk, NC 28604.
“The Lord is my strength and my might; he has become my salvation. There are glad songs of victory in the tents of the righteous. The stone that the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes. This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118
