Bara Blast 07.24.14

Beautiful Bara,

Life is a journey with many ups and downs. And through it all God is there with us. Every brutal and beautiful mile. Sunday, we continue the Bara Series from the life of Joseph called On The Road With Joe.This Sunday please join us as Pastor Joel preaches a sermon titled Living The Dream; It’s Time to Wake Up from Genesis 41.


BSM: Washing Firetrucks and Grub!
This Sunday night is going to be a special night as we serve our local Trophy Club Fire Department.  We are going to help wash their firetrucks and grill out and feed them from 6-7:15pm at the Fire Station (295 Trophy Club Drive, TC).  We always desire at BSM to have students who love to give back to those who give so much for us.  We did this two years ago and it was a ton of fun.  We will need YOUR HELP!  First, please bring any rags or car washing accessories you may have if you can.  Secondly, we could use some help with the food.  We are in need of 50 hot dogs and buns, 4 bags of chips, 4 cookies/desserts, condiments including a bag of cheese, and 40 bottles of water in ice in an ice chest.  Those can be broken up so that one person doesn't have to buy all 50 hot dogs, buns, etc.  Please just contact Ryan Bradley at 972-898-1673 if you would be willing to help.


This week in B-Kids we will learn that Jesus is the Good News, while the Wee Kids learn how to show that you love Jesus. Don’t forget to take a look at this weeks take home sheet to learn more about what we’re doing in class and how to live it out at home. Please contact if you have any questions.

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.
