Banner Elk Presbyterian Church

Fall 2021 Worship: 11 AM

We welcome you to our services with Christian Love.

October 30, 2021 COVID Update: The leadership of Banner Elk desires to serve our community in Christian love and understanding. We have been monitoring the COVID cases in Avery County as well as vaccine availability to our wider community. We do believe that wearing masks is not only for our own personal health, but an act of love and sacrifice for the health benefits of others. But we also recognize that the nature of this pandemic is one of long term presence. Due to lower infection rates in our county, masks are recommended, but not required. We want to be a community of faith where all are welcome in Christ. Where we demonstrate our faith by loving one another and bearing one another’s burdens. We welcome you to worship with us however you most feel safe. Your leadership is committed to leading in the love and wisdom of God and will continue to monitor the activities of the pandemic.

Another option is to view the 11 AM worship service on our YouTube Channel. The video recording of the 11 AM service will generally be available the same day by 1 PM. Or listen live to either worship service from the parking lot on FM 106.7. Thank for your flexibility during challenging times.

We will pass the offering plate and use hymn books. Hand sanitizer is provided for you in the pews. For communion, we will pass the plate with individual elements.
