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.

February, 2018, Events and Announcements

Listen to Pastor Brian's Sermons
When available, Pastor Brian's sermons are posted on our website by Thursday each week. Sermons are available on The Pastor's Page™.

Website and Social Media Survey
In February we will be handing out a survey about the church website and social media for the congregation to complete. We will have the surveys and a box to put them in on the card table in the front of the church. Please take some time to fill out the survey; it will help guide the church in these areas.

No Ash Wednesday Service
Due to several circumstances, including Ash Wednesday being on the same day as Valentine’s Day this year, the church planning committee decided that we will not have an Ash Wednesday Service this year, but we will have it again next year.

Communion During Lent
We will be continuing communion every Sunday in Lent as a way to help mark the significance of the season. We will therefore have communion on each Sunday starting February 18th through Easter, April 1st.

Consistory
Departing consistory members who have served 6 years: Alice Clausing, Carolyn Conner, and Shirley Nelson. Thank you for work well done. Due to his work schedule, Brett Landrum had to withdraw from the second year of his two-year term. Thanks for your good input, Brett.

Consistory members returning for another two years: Dean Severtson and Kristine Petrick.

New consistory members for 2018: Carol Hildebrecht, Robert Willhelm, Alex Ignatiou, and Gail Wells.

New Member - We welcome Alex Ignatiou, our organist/pianist, as a new member of Beaver Church as well as a new consistory member for 2018.

Valentine’s Day Dinner - February 9 - 6:00 PM
We will be having a Valentine’s dinner again this year on Friday February 9th at 6:00 PM in fellowship hall. There is no cost, but we will be taking donations towards the event, and any amount above and beyond the food costs will be a church fundraiser. Please RSVP to pastor Brian (
email or phone 937-469-1383) by February 8th if you wish to attend. Please also indicate if you are vegetarian or have any other dietary needs. It should be a great time as always.

Faith Practices Video Series - February 21 and 28 - noon and 7:00 PM
As we head into Lent, we will have a 2- part video series on issues of faith practices such as communion and prayer, with the first session on Wed. the 21st, and the second on Wed. the 28th of February. Each part will be shown twice each day, at noon and at 7:00 PM. This will give folks a bit more flexibility, especially for those who prefer not to drive at night. Each session will be one hour with video and discussion. We will meet in the fellowship hall.

Youth Event - February 23 - 6:00 PM
Mark your calendars; we will have a youth event starting at 6PM on the evening of Friday February 23rd. Details will be figured out soon, but it will be dinner and an activity.

Kitchen Deep Clean - February 24 - 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
We are asking all volunteers to come to the church on Saturday February 24th from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. We are going to do a deep cleaning / organizing of the kitchen and fellowship meal area. Being that we use the space so much, it needs some extra TLC. Thank you in advance; many hands will make short work.
