Dear Bara,

A Word from Pastor Joel

BSM Evangelism: Super Bowl Party

This Sunday night, February 1st, we will be hosting out 3rd annual BSM Super Bowl Party.  This is a huge event for us.  We have too much delicious food, games, and $50 cash up for grabs.  We'll be gathering at the home of Tommy and Jennifer Maddox (2541 Morgan Lane, TC) starting at 5:15pm. If you are bringing food, please aim to have it at the Maddox's by 5:15pm.  Kickoff is at 5:30.  We'll see you there!

If you have any questions about Bara Student Ministries (BSM), please contact our Youth Pastor, Ryan Bradley at  For more information on BSM, please visit


This week in B-Kids we will learn about Gideon in Judges 6:8. Both classes will have a life verse that we will work on memorizing for the next 3 weeks. For B-Kids that verse is Deuteronomy 6:18, “Do what is right and good in the Lord’s sight”. For Wee Kids the verse is Psalm 100:3, “God made us and we are His”. Hiding God’s word in our hearts can be fun, a note in a lunch box, a Valentine, a driveway full of chalk. Who knows? Come prepared to tell us how your family learns together.

Prayer Partners

This Sunday we are starting a special opportunity for a fun and unique way to pray.  We'll have forms that we'd love EVERYBODY to fill out individually and return to Guest Central by February 15th with a picture.  From there you will be partnered with a youth or child who did the same thing for you to pray with over Lent. You will find out who your prayer partner is on Sunday, February 22nd, so you don't want to miss that Sunday.   Please jump on this great opportunity to have the younger or older generation (depending on where you fall) to pray for you for 40 days!

If you have any questions about Prayer Partners, please contact Ryan Bradley 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.
