Homecoming set for Sept. 10

Beaver Creek’s traditional Homecoming celebration is set for Sunday, Sept. 10.  All members and friends of Beaver Creek Church of the Brethren, present and past, are invited in for this year’s observance, which commemorates the 100th anniversary of the current church building. The building was dedicated in 1917.

Our Homecoming will start with Sunday worship at 11 a.m. September 10, with featured speaker Elaine McGann. A carry-in lunch will follow. Afterward, we will convene for a hymn sing and historical commemoration.

Invitations are being sent out, but it would be helpful if you could add your personal invitation to anyone who might be interested.
