Serving Outside the Walls of the Church
There are many lonely people outside the walls of the church. We need men and women who are willing to go teach a Sunday School lesson, stay with a homebound one so the care giver can attend church, and minister to widows or widowers who are lonely by having monthly meetings just to talk, go out to lunch, Bible Study, etc. If you are interested in this ministry or if you have any questions please contact the church office or Nora Nell Jarrett.

Bear Creek Church Family,
There are not enough words to express how much each one of you mean to me. In October, thirty six years ago, the Lord placed me in the position of Administrative Assistant for our dear Bear Creek Baptist Church. I have always felt this has been and continues to be my ministry - my mission field. Over the years many of you, and many who have already passed, have greatly influenced my life. As I do not have siblings living near, you have become "my family"! You have been there during the birth of our children, grandchildren, marriages, the illnesses & deaths of my parents, one of my brothers and others. You so graciously allowed me the time I needed to be there for them and with them. That is family!! Everyday my heart is so blessed because of you folks.
I would like to thank everyone who has helped me along the way. I am grateful every day for you. I could not have done anything without God, my family and so many countless others. Thank you for the cards, texts, phone calls, kind words and gifts. Thank you for making my job such a joy. God's blessings as we continue to serve Him.
Beaver Creek Baptist Church has begun a new ministry, "Never Alone." This ministry group is for widows and widowers. Meetings will be the first Thursday of each month, 2:00pm in the Beaver Creek Baptist Church Fellowship Hall. Light refreshments will be served. Contact info: Stephanie Pitman at SPITMAN15@YAHOO.COM or 828-385-2122.
