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.

Thanksgiving Carry-In - November 18 following Worship

As usual, we will be having our Thanksgiving carry-in on Sunday, November 18th, which is the Sunday before Thanksgiving and the 3rd Sunday of the month. The carry-in will start immediately after church. We will not be cooking turkeys at the church, so we ask that some of you please bring some meat dishes if possible. Knowing Beaver Church, we will have plenty of food, good times to go around, and much to be thankful for.

Annual Volunteer Award - November 18
Beaver church sure does have a bunch of great people who volunteer and do many things for the church. Several years ago we started an award to be given to a new volunteer each year. Our voting box for this year will be in the sanctuary and each person at the church can write down on a piece of paper who they think the volunteer of the year should be. We will count the votes and the person who wins will be honored during our Thanksgiving carry-in. Each year we will vote for another person, but you can only win once. Winners will be added to our special plaque.

Operation Christmas Child (A Holiday Charity Program) - November 18 Deadline
We will be working with Samaritan’s Purse again to send shoebox-sized gift packs to children around the world for Christmas. We will be providing boxes and instructions, which will be available Sunday Oct. 21st through Nov. 11th at church. We would ask that you bring all of the completed boxes to church by Sunday Nov. 18th.

Hymn Sing Sunday - November 25th
On Sunday November 25th we will have a hymn sing at church. Instead of the usual sermon we will take some time and call on folks to shout out their favorite hymns, which we will then sing. Get your singing voice ready and celebrate as we head into Advent.

New Testament Stories from the Back Side: Bible Stories with a Twist - November 27, December 4, December 11 - 7:00 PM
(A Book Study for Adults)
Our new book will be three weeks in length, starting on Tuesday November 27th, meeting again on Tuesday December 4th, and with the final week being Tuesday December 11th. We will meet all nights at 7:00 PM at a member’s house TBD. The book we are reading is New Testament Stories from the Back Side: Bible Stories with a Twist by J. Ellsworth Kalas. The church will have several copies for those who want to participate. Please see Pastor Brian to get one of these copies. If those run out, you can pick up a copy at some bookstores or Amazon, the ISBN number is (0687073065). “Using an approach similar to his other "Back Side" books, J. Ellsworth Kalas opens up new possibilities of insight into selected New Testament stories by entering them through the "back side" -- through a unique starting point, a creative retelling, a new "lens", or the eyes of a minor or unsympathetic character. Includes 12 stories and a study guide. We will try to meet at member’s houses each Tuesday, and we will announce the locations as we get them sorted out. If you want to bring a snack, it is always appreciated. Blessings, Pastor Brian
