Crossnore’s Mission Work

Crossnore Presbyterian Church believes that Christ calls us to reach out in love to our local and global community. We are actively engaged in local mission opportunities including:

  • Volunteer Avery
  • Reaching Avery Ministry
  • Linville Cove Apartments Ministry
  • Cranberry Soup Kitchen Mission
  • New Opportunity School for Women
  • Crossnore Elementary School
  • Crossnore School
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Thanksgiving Baskets for Needy Families and Individuals
  • and monthly donations of food for people and pets.

We continue to build strong partnerships with the mountain Presbyterian congregations and with larger churches in Charlotte and Wilmington. As partners, we can do far more together than we are able to do alone.

This summer, our Presbyterian Partnership is raising funds and building our third Habitat House in Avery County. Crossnore Presbyterian Church also participates in mission trips in Charlotte and in Wilmington.

Christ calls us to serve the global community as well. We are in covenant relationship with our partner congregation in Guatemala, Libano Presbyterian Church. Together, for the past three years, we have been able to make it possible for 30 Guatemalan children to stay in school past the third grade. Every two years, a couple members of our congregation travel to Guatemala to visit and worship with the Libano congregation, meet the children being served, and continue to grow in our partnership. The church has recently received a Health Education Coordinator for the village. We sent down 100 toothbrushes and toothpaste to assist her.

As Presbyterians, we participate in the Special Offerings and we collect Five Cents a Meal donations every month.
