I grew up in the old Beech Mountain Community of Avery County but, moved to Elk Park in December 1985. My son, James Erwin III, started kindergarten at the old Elk Park Elementary school in 1994. One of his teachers was Mrs. Alma Hoilman, she invited him to attend VBS at EPCC and he did. The closing program that year was held on a Sunday morning. We attended that service and knew EPCC was home from that moment on. I have been a member of Elk Park Christian Church since December 24, 1995. I have been blessed by the people of this congregation and am always amazed at the work they do for our Lord on a regular basis. Incidentally, my daughter Callie Erwin Sheppard married her husband Jonathan Sheppard here at EPCC in July of 2013. Needless to say, I have many wonderful memories of this church; most important was to witness both my kids being baptized into the body of Christ here.
I began serving as Treasurer in 1998 and as Secretary shortly thereafter. I am forever grateful to God and the congregation here for allowing me the privilege to serve. I have some business accounting training from Mayland Community College and have completed a Church Tax Compliance study at Emmanuel School of Religion. My husband Greg Harris and I live on Dark Hollow Road here in Elk Park. Greg is an Elder here at EPCC and currently serves as Board Chairman. We are always available if you have any needs, questions or concerns. If you would like to know more about ways you can make your tax deductible donations to EPCC please give me a call.
