Becker Evangelical Free Church Women’s Ministry

WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDIES

Who: Ladies of BEFC

What: Psalms: The Prayers of God’s People. This study is being run currently by The Village Church in Dallas, TX. They are offering it online to others. It is the women’s Bible study group that Jen Wilkin teaches. It will be taught by her and a couple other gals and is the same format as her other ones that we’ve done the last few fall semesters.

The format of this study will work well if we need to stop meeting or you need to miss because you or your kids are sick, or if the school district goes to full distance learning. When you register for the study, you have full access to watch the lessons yourself. This format just gives us more flexibility when things are a little unknown.

When: Wednesdays mornings starting September 16, 8:30-10:30am (KidCare available)

OR Tuesday evenings, starting September 15th, 7-8:30pm (KidCare not available)

Where:  Wednesday mornings: The Hub across the street from Becker Baptist.

Tuesday evenings: Tara L’s house

How: Since this is an online study that we’re using, we can’t buy a physical book. So you will need to register for the right to print it. It is a $15 fee for the rights to the book. Once I get a final count, I can just have them printed there at a cheaper bulk price and you can pay me the additional $10 for printing. I’ll include the link to register at the end.

Cost: Wednesday mornings: Total of $30. ($15 – online to register, $10 – printing fee, $5 – child care help) You’ll pay the $15 online and bring $15 to Bible Study.

Tuesday evenings: Total of $25 ($15 online to register, $10 printing fee) Bring $10 to Tara’s.

Here is the link to register: (It may ask you which campus you’re from, just choose any). You don’t need to do anything further with this registration, it is just satisfying copyright requirements and payment for the number of books to print.

WOMEN’S SUNDAY SCHOOL OPPORTUNITIES

(9-9:45am)

Adult SUNDAY SCHOOL:

The Adult Sunday School is at 9AM during the school year.

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.


EVENTS PLANNING TEAM

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.


MEALS MINISTRY

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.


Looking to connect with other women? Keep an eye out for some events being planned by our Event Planning Team. If you have ideas or would like to be a part of this, contact Gwen P., Barb S. or Kim S.
