COVID Worship Precautions - Updated December 1, 2022
The consistory voted to keep current Covid practices in place for December with some changes and they include:
▪ Masks will remain optional but encouraged for those who are more vulnerable
▪ We will be singing all 3 of our normal hymns, although sometimes with limited verses
▪ We will continue to pass around the mic for joys and concerns, and the offering plates
▪ We will continue passing the peace and the parting song as we have been currently doing them
▪ Communion will now take place in our traditional way of people coming up to receive bread and juice. Separate packets will still be available for those who wish to use them.
▪ Choir has restarted and will be singing a Cantata on December 11th
▪ We will continue to do meals with volunteers, and the first Sunday of the month will be a potluck for the meal
▪ Sunday School will continue as normal
▪ We will begin to have everyone sign cards at the card table as we have done in the past
▪ Children will now be allowed to sit on the altar area for the Children’s moment
Sunday December 4 - Hanging of The Greens - following morning worship
We'll be decorating the Church on Sunday, December 4, following Morning Worship… this is also a carry-in dinner day!
Sunday December 18 - Impromptu Christmas Pageant - 10:30 AM
During our Sunday service on December 18th, we will be having our impromptu Christmas pageant. We will have some hymns and other aspects of the usual Sunday service; however, the children will remain downstairs and the majority of the service will be the pageant. We will hand out parts to people as they come to church, and there will be costumes available for anyone that wants them. It should be a bunch of fun and will help get everyone into the spirit of Christmas.
Wednesday December 21 - Service of Remembrance - 7:00 PM
This year we will again be holding a special service to honor those who will not be with us this holiday season. The service will take place on Wednesday, December 21st at 7:00 PM. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s celebrations can be some of the happiest times of the year; they can also be a sad reminder of those we have lost. We will acknowledge our grief and seek comfort in God. We are here for each other, here to give comfort, here to provide support, and here to be a community of God together. Please come and share in this special service where we will remember our loved ones and remember that we are not alone.
Saturday December 24 - Christmas Eve Service - 7:00 PM
Please join us for our traditional Christmas Eve service at 7:00 pm. Pastor Brian will offer a Christmas message, and we will sing your favorite traditional Christmas hymns. We will end with Silent Night by candlelight.
Sunday December 25 - Christmas Day - 10:30 AM
We will have a service on Christmas Day as it is a Sunday. It will be an informal and low-key service, and people can even attend in their pajamas if they want. Pastor Brian will read a selection of Christmas stories during the service.
Sunday January 1 - Question Sunday - 10:30 AM
Our Sunday service on New Year’s Day will be a “Question Sunday”. Pastor Brian will answer questions instead of a sermon. There will not be a carry-in, and instead Stuart Wells will be providing a pancake breakfast after the service.
Volunteer of the Year Award 2022
Thank you to everyone who volunteers at Beaver Church. Our church would not exist without the help of so many people. The voting has concluded for volunteer of the year, 2022. There were votes for 9 different church members, however, there is one winner for this year, and that is Alice Clausing. Congratulations Alice, and thank you for all of your work over so many years. Again, thank you all for all the work that everyone has done this year and every year. When you consider the fact that 16 members could not win because they have won before, the fact that we still had so many votes for so many people, shows how much volunteering happens at Beaver Church.
Card Table Update
We are going to start putting cards on the card table again for everyone to sign like we used to. Shirley Nelson, has been taking care of our card ministry, but it would be nice if one or two people could assist in this ministry as well. If you are interested in that, please talk to Pastor Brian.
Consistory Members Needed
We will need at least 3 if not more new consistory members for next year. If you are interested, please let Pastor Brian know. The term for the consistory is two years, and you must be a member of the church.
January 1, 2023 - Pancakes after church
On January 1st we will not be having a carry-in as we usually would for the first Sunday of the month. Instead, Stuart Wells will be preparing pancakes for everyone after the church service.
