EVENTS PLANNING TEAM
Thank you Sarah P. and Christina M. for heading up this amazing group of women who demonstrate such hospitality hosting our meals at church (Celebration Sunday for example)! This takes a LOT of work and we are so grateful to these women who serve. Sarah and Christina have been called to other areas of ministry and we are currently looking for a few individuals to take over the leadership of this important ministry.
After taking the Spiritual Gifts survey, maybe you discovered you have the gift of helps or hospitality. This is a great area in which you could serve our church - and we need you! If you feel God prompting you to help in this area, please contact the office.
Here are a few words from Kami P., our Meals Ministry coordinator:
Love to cook? Love to help others in need? If so, we need you! The Meals Ministry is looking to add members to its team of meal providers. When a need (birth, surgery, death of a loved one, etc...) arises a notification goes out to our team and if you are able to help out, great!! If that date doesn't work, there will always be others that arise throughout the year. Jump in whenever it works for you to serve! It may be once a year or 10 times a year, it is your choice. We simply encourage you to consider joining this team as a way to serve in our church and community!! It is truly heartwarming to deliver a meal to someone who needs it and see their smile of appreciation!! If you would like to join this team or would like more information about this ministry, please contact Kami P.

We will hear about uncovering the lies we believe and getting real about our daily need for a Savior.
This is a great day to praise God with our own local worship team, enjoy lunch (that you don't have to cook) and snacks, hear great speakers who will teach us how to live in the freedom God intended for our lives and so much more. Conference registration begins on September 30. Doors open the day of the conference at 9:30 and the conference goes from 10:00-3:30. The conference will be held at Becker Baptist Church.

Women's Ministry Team:
BEFC women's ministry exists to glorify God by bringing women into a vibrant, personal relationship with our Savior and provide opportunities for them to grow spiritually, to fellowship and encourage one another, and to equip them to serve Him in our homes, church, community and around the world.
The several ways we provide these opportunities are:
Socials: Purpose is to fellowship with and encourage women in our church and community in informal gatherings, to touch them with the love of Christ, and to draw them closer to Him.
Showers: Offered to encourage and equip newly engaged or expectant women to serve the Lord beginning in their homes.
Bible studies: Designed to help women grow in their relationship with the Lord. Times offered: Monday afternoons, Wednesday mornings at Grace Lutheran, Wednesday evenings during Hiz Kids, Thursday mornings and Sunday mornings during Disciple U.
Dig Deeper seminar: Previously offered several times per year to teach women how to dig deeper in personal Bible study. Offered now as the need arises.
Meals Ministry: Serves members in our church and community with meals or other help when the need arises.
Service projects: Have included cleaning day at the church office. Cooking day to help prepare meals for families in need.
