From The Pastor's Desk
Greetings Beaver Beloveds,
Can you believe that Spring time is almost here? Yesterday, I was able to sit on the front steps of the parsonage and watch the thick, pointy icicles melt away. It was fun to watch this transformation unfold. And through the melting of these ice icicles I was reminded that even the most frigid and frozen objects can be transformed once they are kissed by the sun. Oftentimes, we as believers struggle with this 'icicle' syndrome which causes our own souls to become frigid and frozen. Therefore, I pray that through the warmth of this newsletter your soul will feel as though it too has been kissed by the sun! Brothers and sisters, we have so many great things happening at Beaver Memorial UMC and I am so grateful to be with you in such a time like this.
Peace to you,
Pastor Leah Williams

They are participating in Trivia questions every Sunday and the youth that wins for the month can choose a $25 gift card he or she likes, including Downtown Lewisburg gift cards, Purity Candy (2 pounds) gift cards, Wendy’s gift cards.

Busy Beaver Daycare
Busy Beaver is getting very excited to welcome spring! Hopefully with warmer weather in the near future, we will be having more fun on our new playground! We are also preparing for an expansion of our infant room! Currently the infant room holds 4 babies. Our new room will hold 8!
We currently have 37 children enrolled as of March 1st! We still have 7 spots available to fill, but we are getting phone calls daily for enrollment. Busy Beaver is in the process of hiring a new staff member to fill our Preschool Supervisor position. The job posting is on the BMUMC website, social media, and indeed, if you know anyone looking for employment, please spread the word!
Kinderfolk is as full as we can be right now, and happily, we're already fully enrolled (with waitlists) going into next year when we hope to resume our normal schedule. Families have been slowly trickling back as COVID numbers have gone down in our area.
