VBS 2013 with John & Barbara Baker, Terri Sandidge and Matthew Maloyed is one of the best ever with hundreds of children and teens hearing the Gospel story each night. Lessons, activities, bus rides and even train rides are on the agenda!
Youth Missions Trips are completed for 2013- to Romania and Belize. Thanks to the great teams that traveled to these places and worked with youth and adults on these missionfields! (SEE YOUTH ON THIS WEBSITE FOR MORE PHOTOS)
Since 1935, God’s Missionary Church has been doing Camp Meetings in Penns Creek. Beavertown Church has been involved in the camp since the very beginning- and one more year, one more time, the Gospel message was presented to thousands of in attendance. May God bless the ministry of our faithful evangelists: Daniel Stetler, Leonard Sankey, Noel Scott. The full youth program with Brian Spangler and the VBS with the Mason’s were a blessing to all. The Quales Family ministered in music. Best of all, our church family received definite spiritual help around the altar and in the place of private prayer. To God be the Glory!
It is with a bit of disbelief that we are “remembering Paul Anderson.” Our friend and long time part of our church family, Paul R. Anderson passed away on Thursday morning at his home in Selinsgrove. Paul had a big heart and readily did all he could do to be a blessing. In our recent building project, Paul showed up in his wheelchair many times and did what he could. We will all miss him, and his family most of all. Our deepest sympathy to his wife Tina and his children and their families: Darvin, Wayne and Sheryl.
All services at Beavertown God’s Missionary Church

Beavertown Church has many connections to Papua New Guinea because of former missionaries and the involvement of Pastor James Plank and Dr. Tim Slavens on recent missions trips. What a thrill to be a “stop” on the tour for Institute of Christian Academy Ensemble. It was great also to welcome back Velma Ninjipa, Brother Tobias and all the staff.
Mr. & Mrs Ruben Rodriguez were united in marriage today. Our best wishes.
