1st & Ten
Throughout scripture you’ll find the people of God tithing. They gave the first tenth of their income to the purposes of God in their local temple or local church. It is with this mindset that we, as the Bara Church family, are learning to experience the joyful grace of tithing. We know 1st & Ten is a football term, but what would you expect for a church in Texas? 1st and Ten in our giving allows us to learn the joyful discipline of giving first to the purposes of God every time we receive a paycheck or an installment of income. The spirit of the tithe is as much about what you give to first as it is giving a tenth. It’s in that same spirit that we are training ourselves to go 1stand Ten. We give our first and best in response to our Father who gave His first and best and only son for us. It is Bara’s goal to always advance in generosity! Your 1st and Ten gift will do just that.

The M.O.B (Men of Bara) meet at the Trophy Club Country Club, 500 Trophy Club Dr. on Wednesdays from 6am – 7am for Bible study. Contact:

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 directions to the Bara Church office click here.
