Beautiful Bara,
Join us this Sunday as Pastor Joel preaches from Genesis 39. The topic is Between The Lines. We always look forward to seeing you and guests as well.
Bara Student Ministry
BSM: What’s LOVE Got To Do With It?
We all want it.  We all try to give it out as best as we could. Jesus modeled it pretty well.  But, what is love?  What does it really look like?  Why is it so hard?  Come find out what it's all about this Sunday night, from 6-7:15pm at the Bradley's (4004 Shrike Trail, Roanoke - New Address).  We'll have some good snacks, games, gift cards up for grabs, and plenty of more fun to go around.  You don't want to miss it!
Summer Rec
For the 3rd year summer in a row, our Bara Interns have hosting our FREE Summer Rec that started last past Tuesday, July 8th.  We've already had a phenomenal first week with days over 50 kids and coaches!  We can still use your help in a few ways!  First, spread the word.  For all the information, get it here.  Secondly, if you have any extra balls of any sort lying around your house or garage that we could borrow and/or keep, that would be a huge blessing. Thirdly, we can always use extra help and bodies, especially if you are a student in BSM or older.  Lastly, please pray for our interns as they lead, all the kids that will come, and for the safety of all in the Texas heat.  For more any questions, please contact Nicole Coetzer at
Happy summer sunshiny day! This week we will finish up our review on the Old Testament. Come ready to have fun, play games and and learn more about our Bible!!

Bara Church would like to invite you to experience WELCOME. WELCOME is a monthly luncheon designed for guests who have been attending Bara Church gatherings to get to know the church family on a deeper level. In WELCOME, we will explain what we believe, how we operate, and the history of our church. If you want to join the body of believers here at Bara Church, WELCOME is your first step. If you have questions or simply want to get to know a few families better, WELCOME is for you. The lunch is free, childcare is free, and committing to participate is easy – The next WELCOME will be July 20th at the home of Joe and Karen Plagen’s. Their address is 2224 Alisa Ln in Trophy Club, Tx. To sign up click here. For directions click here. If you have any questions please email Jennifer at
Men of Bara please join us each Wednesday morning at 6:00 am for a Bible study led by Pastor Joel at Vinny’s. Contact: For directions click here.
Arise and Build
If you love accomplishing a lot at one time (think: one stop shopping) then you need to come check out our Arise and Build Prayer Nights every Tuesday evening at 7:00pm at the BARA offices. In less than an hour, you can praise The Lord for all He is doing in and through Arise and Build while you answer His call to pray audaciously for what is to come and if that wasn't enough: you will get to build new relationships with your BARA family!! One of the sweet byproducts of our Prayer Nights for those of us that have been participating is that we have experienced the joy of getting to know each other better in ways that can only happen by praying and spending time together. Give it a try and see how God can use a time of prayer devoted to building a building to actually build His church! For more information and directions to the Bara Church office click here.

Daily Bible Reading Plan

One of our Core Commitments is humility, which is a result of bowing before God. One of the ways we submit to God and let Him lead us is to read the Bible daily. To get this week’s reading click here.
