The Meals Ministry is looking to add members to its team of meal providers!!  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 Pfingsten.



In an endeavor to feel more connected during this time where we aren’t getting together as much as groups, the BEFC Women’s Ministry has put together a group of women that will in turn reach out to each woman of BEFC.  These Care ‘n Prayer leaders will be reaching out to you occasionally to see how you are and if you have any prayer requests/needs.  These leaders will continue to pray for you. There is no commitment on your part, we just want to intentionally be in prayer for each one of the women in our church family.

We are so thankful for each of you and pray that God continues to strengthen your hearts during this unusual season.  May you draw near to God and dig into His Word for encouragement and growth.

Moms with children of all ages (birth through adult) are welcome to join in the fun!

MOMS will meet the 1st and 3rd Thursday evenings during the 2023-24 school year from 5:00pm-7:00pm at Becker Baptist Church (11951 Hancock St SE, Becker, MN 55308).

What: The purpose is to connect women to the Word of God and each other.

Women are paired together and meet as often as their schedules allow (recommend twice per month) from October, 2022-March, 2023.

Why: In the words of Paul in 1 Thessalonians 2:8 “Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.”

The Adult Sunday School is at 9am. (begins Sept. 17, 2023)

We will do a topical study. Topics typically run 6-weeks, and many of our studies are through RightNow Media, so you can log in on your own and catch up if you miss a week! Feel free to join at any time.


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.

One final thing…did you know that you are being prayed for? Every woman in our church has been assigned to a member of our Prayer and Care team, to lift them up in prayer. They may reach out to you during the year to see if there are any specific prayer requests you may have. Thank you to Cambria for coordinating this sweet ministry!

We hope you’ve found a way to connect, grow or serve!  We are so grateful to be church family!

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be satisfied.” Matthew 5:6
