Beaver United Church of Christ is a community of caring individuals brought together by a common bond – love.

Our congregation is composed of people from all walks of life who come together to offer healing and comfort, learning and encouragement, much like a family. We welcome all, and believe that extravagant hospitality is central to the role of the church.

At Beaver UCC, we help our members grow spiritually, while at the same time understanding that everyone has their own spiritual path. Our church is a place where you can think for yourself and differing views are respected. It is our hope that through education, fellowship, and service we can, as a community, come closer to God and each other.

In all things we seek to offer an atmosphere of informality, spontaneity, fellowship, and fun. We hope our church is a place where all feel both welcome and comfortable.

September/October Video Series: Welcoming The Other - Last episode, October 2
We will watch 3 episodes of the Netflix TV show “Queer Eye”, rated TV-14. This show nominated for 4 Emmys is a show about five gay men who go to help others to dress better, cook better, and decorate their houses etc. On the surface this might seem like a shallow show, but the show has dived deeply into important issues such as self-worth, coming together, and welcoming the stranger. In today’s world of division, a show that brings different people together in a meaningful way is a great thing to see. We will be watching one episode and discussing it each Tuesday for 3 weeks, starting Tuesday September 18th, and ending Tuesday October 2nd. Each Tuesday we will show the episode twice, once at 1:00 PM and once at 7:00 PM in the fellowship hall. Each episode is about 45 minutes long.

Blessing of The Animals - October 3 - 6:30 PM


Neighbors in Need (NIN) Offering - October 7

Beaver UCC will receive the NIN offering on Sunday, October 7th as one of our four special denominational offerings we take up during the year. Neighbors in Need (NIN) is a special mission offering of the UCC that supports ministries of justice and compassion throughout the United States. One-third of NIN funds support the Council for American Indian Ministry (CAIM). Two-thirds of the offering is used by the UCC's Justice and Witness Ministries (JWM) to support a variety of justice initiatives, advocacy efforts, and direct service projects.

Church Cookie Bake Party - October 13 - 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM
As many of you know, we are all baking cookies for our cookie walk later in the year. We will be having a baking party at the church for anyone who wants to come from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM on Saturday October 13th. Bring your recipes, supplies, equipment if you have it, and we will have the ovens.

Harvest Dinner Carry-In - October 21
Keep October 21st on your calendar for a carry-in on the Third Sunday in October. It will take place after church; please bring a dish to share. The theme is the Harvest dinner, to celebrate the harvest season and our farming history. There will be a prize for the best dish made with something that was grown at home or farm.

Big Ol' Pumpkin Night - October 26 - 6:30 PM
Dear Jr. High, Sr. High, families, and other folks who might want to join, let it be known that we will be having our annual grand pumpkin carve off on Friday October 26th at 6:30 PM here at the church. Please bring a pumpkin to carve, whatever carving instruments you feel you need, and come prepared to “bring it on” as the youth would say. We will likely have apple cider and other snacks, feel free to bring those as well. We will also have different categories of competition and prizes—yup, that’s right: prizes!

Cookie Walk Volunteers
Dear bakers, and even people who can sort of bake something. Beaver church needs your help again this year. The church will be doing a cookie walk fundraiser again in November of this year. For those who don’t know what that is, it involves us baking a whole bunch of cookies and then people buying them from us. They get to fill a box for a certain amount of money, and they walk down a long selection of cookies and pick whichever ones they want to fill the box. We felt it would be a good idea to have people start signing up for this now, to give people time to bake and freeze cookies etc. Look for a sign-up sheet at the back of the church in May. Each signup spot is volunteering to bake 5-dozen of a particular cookie. Once cookies are baked they can be frozen for many months and we have a freezer at the church if you don’t have room in yours.

Cookie Walk - Saturday, November 17 - 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM
The date for the cookie walk fundraiser has been set for November 17th, the Saturday before Thanksgiving. We will be selling cookies from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM and will have a signup sheet for volunteers sometime before the event. For all of those who signed up to bake cookies, please get them done before November 17th. If you can’t do what you have signed up for, please let Pastor Brian know. Cookies already made can be placed in the large freezer in the back room of the kitchen. Please label the type and the amount by dozen.
