July newsletter: Vacation Bible School time!

Beaver Creek Church will be having Vacation Bible School July 17-20, jointly with Montezuma Church of the Brethren. (Beaver Creek hosted last year, and this year we’re the guests at Montezuma). Read about this and other stories in the July newsletter, now available online.

Here are some of those other stories:

  • We’ll be having outdoor worship under the shelter July 23, followed by a carry-in picnic.
  • Change comes into all of our lives, but how do we deal with it. Pastor Elaine has some thoughts for us to consider in her contribution.
  • New directional signs to the church have been posted, thanks to work by the Men’s Fellowship and Facilities Team.
