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.

Confirmation Class
Each year in September I ask if there are any youth interested in confirmation. Confirmation is the act by which youth study their faith, and traditionally confirm the baptism they received as an infant, or receive adult baptism. We usually have classes that start in September and go through May. During confirmation youth are expected to remain in worship, complete monthly reading assignments, and meet for a class with me each month. The age when confirmation is appropriate varies by the individual. I would suggest no earlier than 8th grade, and certainly by 10th grade, youth would be more than ready. I usually say that if our older Sunday school class is becoming too easy, then it is likely time to start confirmation. Anyone who is interested should contact me and we will try to have a class in late September.

Choir Resuming - September 3

The choir will be starting up again, and I know we are all looking forward to that. Choir practice will begin after service on Sunday, September 3rd at around 12:15 and at the same time every Sunday after that. The choir will start singing in service on September 10th. As stated every year, all, and yes that means you, are invited to sing in the choir. You don’t have to read music, or even sing well, all you have to do is want to sing.

Sunday School Resuming - September 10
We will resume our Sunday school programs for both youth and adults on Sunday September 10th. Listed below are our various classes and education opportunities with some information about each one. Age ranges are given for each class; however, flexibility is assumed depending on the child.

Chicken and Noodle Dinner - September 23rd - 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM
This year we are trying something new for a fundraiser at Beaver church. We are going to be hosting a chicken and noodle dinner for the church and public on Saturday September 23rd. The dinner will be open for most of the day, 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM. We will offer chicken and noodles, a side, and a drink for $8. We will be doing advertising, and please tell folks you know about it. We will be putting up a signup sheet for people to help with the dinner, and we are also asking people to donate sodas and water if they can, just like we used to do for the popcorn festival. We are looking for only the following, since we don’t want to have too many selections to stock:

Coke
Mountain Dew
Diet Coke
Sprite
Pepsi
Water

Thank you so much. We hope this will be much easier than the popcorn festival and be a good fundraiser!

Youth Event - September 29 - 6:00 PM

Mark your calendars: we will have a youth event on Friday the 29th of September starting at 6:00 PM. Activities to be determined. Suggestions to Pastor Brian are welcome.
