I was born and raised in Barnardsville, NC, where I still live. I graduated from North Buncombe High School in 1990 then went on to Gardner-Webb College and that’s where I met by sweet husband, Sean. Sean is from Winston Salem, NC but he loves these mountains. Sean and I have no children, but our dogs; Corkie, Dakota and Dan are enough to keep us busy. My parents are Roy and June Guthrie of Barnardsville, and I have three sisters and one brother (plus a lot of extended family). I love my close family, and I count them a blessing from the Lord.

I have been the church secretary/bookkeeper here since September 19, 1997. I have the best job in the world. The folks here at Weaverville Presbyterian are just wonderful to me and I count it a privilege to work here everyday.

God bless you all and always keep you safe,

Elaine
