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.


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.

Mission statement:
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:

Showers: Offered to encourage and equip newly engaged or expectant women to serve the Lord beginning in their homes.

2. Growing:
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.

3. Serving:
