This year our annual “Rags to Riches” event is joining with our annual garage sale and also our annual church picnic, for a newly combined Community Fun Day! We hope many of neighbours and friends will join us! There will be fun for the whole family and live music over our BBQ lunch. Bring your lawn chair, hang out, shop around and check out that same great stash of clothing we always seem to gather! Simply take what you can use and donate what you’d like – all proceeds raised this year will be going to “The Cove Youth Initiative“. We are excited to partner with them in support of troubled youth and families in Barrie!
The other wonderful piece of our annual R2R event that you may look forward to is the connecting, the food, the stories of God’s work in our lives! No problem – you can still do that with friends that day! AND stay tuned for summer “IF:Tables”!
Let’s connect over God’s Word.
Are you feeling like you may need some help staying in daily time with God? Learning, connecting with Him more? Or like you’re not connecting with other women enough and you want to, but don’t have much time? Maybe just 15 minutes a day?
Join our private Facebook group, for BFMC Women (and friends are welcome!) who want to connect and keep inspiring each other to be in God’s Word regularly, by following the daily IF:Equip Studies together.
Get the “IF:Gathering” app on your smart phone or sign up for daily emails here. Check in with the group when you’d like and share your thoughts!

Do you desire for God to use you to communicate His love to those around you? One of the most powerful ways you can do this is through sharing your story of God’s redemption in your own life. We have created a simple, practical tool to help you see the narrative of God’s work in your life. Then, together, we will practice communicating that story with others. You don’t want to miss this 6 week study,
May 29th- July 7th
Drop-in | 9 – 9:50 am | Room 116
Bible study for women, Sunday mornings before service (September – June). Join us anytime as we simply open God’s Word together each week and see what He would have us glean from it. No need to sign up.
Current Study: Genesis
The women’s Sunday morning Bible study will continue during the summer. Bring a friend!
This spring we are excited to be jumping into a global missions opportunity called Days for Girls. They are a non-profit organization that has a mandate to see all women around the world have the opportunity to have clean feminine hygiene products available to them so that they aren’t either ostracized from their communities or made to miss school every month. We will be making feminine hygiene kits that include reusable pads and cleaning supplies .
OUR GOAL: to complete 100 kits in the next year.
Even if you can’t sew, you can still help out with this project; think assembly-line! We’ll meet monthly, alternating weekend and weekday opportunities, to make these kits together, in assembly line fashion. Even if you can’t sew, there are lots of ways to help!
Items you can bring if you have them:
- 100% cotton fabrics
- Sewing machine/extension cord
- Rotary cutter with mat
