Hello Church Family,
Stay in the know, and read through all the upcoming opportunities BEFC has planned.

Join us for 9am Sunday School and 10am Worship Service! If you missed last weeks Sunday School, no problem, join in at any time.


ADULT SMALL GROUPS – STARTING IN OCTOBER
Small Group sign-up is now underway. All groups will be doing a six-week study based on the BLESS sermon series. You have four groups to choose from with start dates in Oct. and one group with a start date in Nov. Please check out the display in the Connection Center for more detailed information and to sign-up or contact Kevin. Small Groups are a great place to connect, equip and encourage each other. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity.

CHRIS TOMLIN CONCERT – TICKET DEADLINE SEPTEMBER 22
Join us at the Chris Tomlin concert Saturday, Oct. 12th at 7:00pm. Everyone  provides their own transportation. Purchase your discount tickets by Sept. 22 on the website.

OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE – SEPTEMBER 23
Fayth Brennan is looking for one or two people to help her hand out around 1,800 christian booklets and share the gospel at St. Cloud State University this coming Monday – September 23rd. The start time would be 8am and you could stay as long or as short as you can, no time restrictions. If you are interested in helping contact Fayth. The name of the booklet is “What Time Is Purple”? Strange title, but talks about biblical truth. Relativism vs truth and Atheisim vs God.
