Who We Are


Beaver Memorial UMC was built in 1890 and stands tall in the heart of Lewisburg as a congregation seeking to welcome all. We acquired our church name in memory of Rev. Peter Beaver. Rev. Beaver was ordained by the Father of American Methodism, Francis Asbury, and he was grandfather to former Pennsylvania Governor, James Beaver, for which Penn State's ‘Beaver Stadium’ is named.

Today, Beaver Memorial is an openly LBGT+ affirming congregation of the United Methodist Church, seeking to be an inclusive community where all can feel at home and grow in their faith. If you’re looking for a church home, please know that you're always welcome here.
