March newsletter

Beaver Creek Church’s March newsletter is now available online. The main subject of the newsletter is our upcoming pastoral transition that will see Pastor Glenn moving to Mill Creek Church of the Brethren in May. The newsletter includes letters from Pastor Glenn and from Brad Eckard, chair of the leadership team. Other highlights include:

  • LaDawn Knicely’s March 5 ordination as a minister in the Church of the Brethren.
  • A new Caregivers’ Circle for those who provide care to elderly family members and others.
  • Lenten observances, including three Lenten campfires (Sunday, March 5, Sunday, March 26, and Saturday, April 8), with a 5 p.m. dinner and 6 p.m. vespers on each occasion).
