It is estimated that there are more than 100 churches in Watauga, Avery and Ashe counties.
Some of these mountain parishes are fairly new while others date back to the 19th century.
As you might expect most of these churches are protestant denominations such as the Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian and Lutheran faiths, we also have a good number of Catholic and Episcopal churches in the High Country.
In Boone, you will also find the Boone Unitarian Universalist Fellowship and the Temple of the High Country.
Since the High Country is such a sought-after vacation destination, all of our congregations are used to having visitors from out of town come and worship with us. All are invited!
