time to time, the Mission, Service and Benevolence Area of Ministry recognizes a
example of such a life of loving service through the presentation of a
Mission Star. Today, on
this very special day in the life of our church,
we are honoring the many years of caring work by
one of our members – an
individual whose quiet dedication, whose wisdom, hard work, and
talent have been
given not only to our church but to the wider community continuously for so
decades and with such humility.
Mission Star 2019
Mr. Beal was a vital member of the Neighborhood House Saturday Tutoring
program for years.
I believe He made his biggest impact when he
used his Scientific knowledge to teach the
students all about the scientific
process. Mr. Beal started the Science Program when he noticed
a growing number of students were asking for
help with their school projects. He worked with
the children every Saturday from October until
May and brought them to a competition in
Parsippany. He also spent many hours
brainstorming and preparing lessons for the students.
I was first introduced to Mr. Beal in my 8th
grade year when he served as my confirmation mentor.
Since that time he has helped me to see the
value in mission work and has inspired me and the
students at the Neighborhood House.
