Dear Bara,

We are so excited for the Quile’s vacation to Hawaii! They will be leaving Saturday so please keep them in your prayers. Karsten Chearis will be preaching this Sunday on James 4. Anyone that has heard Karsten preach in the past know what kind of a gifted sermon he delivers. Please plan on being with us this Sunday to hear his powerful message called Candy Coated Christianity.

BSM Worship: What God Desires for You in Dating

This Sunday night we'll be continuing our series on dating and relationship from the book of Song of Solomon.  We got off to a great start last Sunday.  This weekend we'll be looking at how a Godly couple should date and court.  We'll be gathering at the Bradley's (4004 Shrike Trail, Roanoke) from 6-7:15pm.  We'll have snacks, worship, games, and fun as always.  You don't want to miss this.

For any questions about BSM, please contact Ryan Bradley at


Wow!! What a powerful day at church last week listening to all of our children pray from their hearts! This week in Wee kids we will learn how the study of baby Moses demonstrates the providence of God. In Be Kids will learn about Paul and discover that they too can spread God's good news. We are looking forward to seeing each of you and learning more about god's word together!

Bara Church would like to invite you to experience WELCOME.

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 Sunday November 16th at the home of Tommy & Jennifer Maddox. Their address is 2541 Morgan Lane in Trophy Club. To sign up click here. For directions click here. If you have any questions please email Jennifer at

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.
