WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDIES

FALL WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY
Join us as we dig into God’s word with Jen Wilkin. In this 10-session verse-by-verse study of Exodus 1–18, Jen Wilkin shows us that Israel’s story is our story: the same God who delivered Israel also delivers all those He loves from slavery to sin and from service to the pharaohs of this world. He lifts our eyes to the promised land He has prepared where we dwell with I AM and worship Him as the one true God.

WOMEN’S MINISTRY EVENTS

MEALS TEAM
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.

CARE ‘N PRAYER MINISTRY – PRAYING FOR YOU!
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.

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.

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 Sunday School.
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:
