Bara Blast 10.02.14

Dear Bara,

This Sunday, Pastor Ryan will be concluding our series, "Love Does" from the book of James in Chapter 5 with a sermon called, "Camel Knees of Faith!"  Come hear how James writes how a Christian can live in a pagan world and still love others.  Here's a hint: Camel Knees!  Come find out what that means.  

Just in case you missed Karsten's message last week entitled, "Candy Coated Christianity," you can hear it here.  Much thanks to Karsten in his sharing of the Word.  It truly as a blessing!

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.
