Thanks to an overwhelming amount of generosity, effort, and energy from Beacon community members and friends of Beacon, we are thrilled to announce that we will be worshipping upstairs in the sanctuary on Easter morning, Sunday March 31st at 10am!
This is a significant move for us, as we are poised to keep growing as a faith community, and we believe this move will enable that growth to happen.
We have arranged for our pews to be on rolling (and locking!) casters to make for a more flexible space for a variety of programs and worship.
We also now have a children’s space located in the sanctuary itself, in a way where parents can still participate in worship even as young children play with and get to know each other.
And although we are proud to welcome you into our updated sanctuary, our plans for that room and this building are still big: installing new carpet and a light installation using many small lightbulbs to light up the room. Check back here for more information on The Lights Over Cumberland Street installation and project soon and very soon.

We are so grateful and thrilled for all of the work that was accomplished earlier this month at our workday on March 16th!
Many, many thanks to our friends at Forest Grove Presbyterian Church, Broad Street Ministry’s Youth Initiative, and Beacon community members for their dedication in ripping up carpet, building raised bed gardens, organizing art supplies, and making pews movable with casters!
We could not do this work without friends like YOU!
Below are some pictures from the day:

Our beloved worship leader Dan Bell followed a dream to Nashville, and while we miss him dearly, we’re thrilled for the new opportunities he’s encountering there.
As a result, however, Beacon is searching for a new worship leader/musician for our weekly 10am worship service.
Details and job description are below. Those who are interested may send a cover letter, two references, and a resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Saturday March 16th, from 9:00am-3:00pm, we will be having a community work day around Beacon to get some new projects rolling and complete some ongoing projects to make our building and yard more multi-purpose, open, and inviting.
We hope you’ll join us in rolling up our sleeves and making some progress!
Some of the things we’ll be working on include:
- converting our pews to be on casters
- beginning the work on a raised-bed garden
- cleaning/organizing the space
- ripping up carpet
Join us, and also feel free to stop by and see the progress (we’re at 2364 E Cumberland Street). We’re so excited!
If you have any questions, please call Rebecca at 267 702 0804 or email us at email@example.com.
We’ll begin this season of reflection with scripture, songs, prayer, and the imposition of ashes.
Join us as we reflect on the life, work, death, and ultimately the resurrection of Jesus over the next six weeks.

On November 4th, members of Forest Grove Presbyterian Church joined local community members to clean, organize, and transform Beacon’s building in several amazing ways.
We’re so grateful for the time, energy, and effort everyone put into making Beacon a more beautiful place.
One of the most exciting aspects of the day was converting our pews by shortening them and putting them on locking casters so that we can move the pews around to make our sanctuary space more functional:
We’re so excited and grateful for the ways in which we’re growing, and for partners like Forest Grove Presbyterian who invest so much of themselves in the work God is doing, in their context and in the Beacon neighborhood.
Here’s some more photos from the day!
