Thursday evening, May 15th
Earlier this year we announced Rev. Nick Carter’s retirement from Andover Newton Theological School as President and now we get to announce the celebration! A retirement party will take place on Thursday evening, May 15th, and FBC Beverly is invited! The event will include a nice dinner, a few speeches, and dancing in a huge tent on the “quad” of the school campus. Tickets for the evening are $75 per person.
During the day on Thursday, the college plans to host Diana Butler Bass on campus for a program that will also be open to churches as well as alumni/ae. Flyers will be sent out closer to the date of the party, but Andover Newton wanted to be sure to include our entire congregation in their plans since they know Nick continues to hold FBC Beverly in his heart following his years of service here. So please mark your calendars and save the date for this very special day if you wish to celebrate the many years of service Nick Carter has given to this church and our surrounding community, as well as helping to shape the future of our next generation of Christian leaders.

Please stay tuned to the Bulletin for future details on both of these upcoming events!

Inquiring Minds Want to Know: “ABC’s of FBC”

If you are interested in learning more about FBC Beverly,we invite you to be part of the 2014 Inquiry Class beginning in April 2014.

If you have been participating in worship and various programs of the church for some time or for a very brief time, perhaps some questions have come to mind about this unique church. If so, the ministers would very much like to hear from you. During the class, an overview of the current ministries of the church as well as its history will be the focus. There would also be discussion about what it means to be part of an American Baptist church. Sometimes, at the end of such a class, people choose to join the church which would be terrific. But, whether you are considering membership or would just like to know more about the church, please let us know of your interest by contacting Beth, Julie or Will by email, phone, text, or with a chat!
