Bara Blast 08.01.14

Beautiful Bara,

Pastor Joel will be preaching from Genesis 42 this Sunday. The title is Do This and Live: The World Saving Power of Forgiveness. This is a sermon we all need to hear and one that we can all benefit from. As always, we look forward to seeing you at our Gathering this Sunday.

Bara Student Ministry
BSM: Ultimate Kickball
This Sunday night we'll be indulging in an intense game of kick ball.  Come join us at Harmony Park (699 Indian Creek Dr., TC) from 6-7:15pm and BRING A FRIEND!  This is what this event is designed for - evangelism and fun!  We'll provide everything; we just need students ready to come to have a great time.  Hope to see you there!
Summer Rec
Thanks to all of you who helped serve at, pray for, and/or donate to Summer Rec over these past four weeks.  It was a huge success with an average of over 30 kids and helpers each day!  Much thanks is also due to our amazing summer interns who planned and ran the entire thing!  It's always such a joy to be able to serve the community!


This week in B-Kids we will learn more about hoe the Old Testament and the New Testament fit together. In the Old Testament we saw many of Gods promises and in the New Testament we will explore how Jesus is the fulfillment of those promises! In Wee Kids we will hear the story of Paul and Barnabas recorded in Acts 13 and learn this life point – GO TELL ABOUT JESUS!!! Remind your Wee ones that this isn’t just go tell about Jesus weekend as God wants us to live a “Go and tell” lifestyle! If you have any questions contact

Family Worship

Mark your calendars for Sunday August 31st as we will be having Family Worship. This is a time where children and adults worship together. We will have nursery for babies-age 2.

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 September 21st, at the home of Tommy & Jennifer Maddox.

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.
