BSM Super Bowl Party
Sunday night, BSM will be hosting our annual Super Bowl Party at the Maddox's (2541 Morgan Lane, Trophy Club).  Kickoff is at 5:30pm and we will have plenty of food, a chance to take home some cash, and a blast watching the game.  This is a great and easy event to invite your friends to.  Hope to see you there!
For any questions contact Ryan Bradley at

We will continue with lesson 3 in our curriculum, Into the Depths. Our B-Kids lesson will teach the children that we should do more than just talk about doing the right thing. We need to follow through on our words with actions. The Bible story will be Ruth and Naomi (Ruth 1 & 2). Our Wee Kids lesson will be on being kind to others. The Bible story will be, The Good Samaritan (Luke 10).

1.  Because we will have refreshments available throughout our time together, please let us know of any food allergies so we can plan accordingly.
2.  Please let us know if you are coming for dinner at 6:30pm Friday night so we can be sure to get enough food.
3.  Once you decide, let us know if you are planning on staying the night. We are looking forward to slumber party!!  But please, don’t let that intimidate you!  It is perfectly acceptable to go home & come back Saturday morning if you are more comfortable with that!
4.  That’s it!  Let’s just agree to let God do His thing and we will ALL be blessed!
The planning team is SO excited to see God move this weekend and can’t wait to share it with each of you!
Trail Angel Gear Packet
Last Sunday we handed out packets that included a variety of things, ways to serve 1st & Ten monthly giving guides, information on Arise & Build, bGroups and a Ministry Service Interest Form. If you did not receive a packet we will have some at the back of the auditorium this Sunday. Please look them over and turn them in as soon as possible, this will help us and you greatly. If you have any questions, please contact Ryan Bradley or Joel Quile.
Art of Serving
We are so grateful for our volunteers at Bara Church and for Rolando Diaz for opening up his studio and so magnificently painting a masterpiece set to music. We feel certain all who came for the volunteer appreciation event had a great time and left amazed at Ro’s talent. For pictures of the event go to
Bara Glow Egg Hunt
On Saturday, March 26th from 4-6pm at Byron Nelson High School in the practice gyms (where we meet every Sunday), Bara will be having an amazing community outreach event in the form of our glow egg hunt.  It's back and better than ever.  Bara's 2nd Annual Glow Egg Hunt preparations are underway.  How can you help?  Great question.  Here's 3 ways: 1) Pray for the event! 2) Mark the date and serve at this event!  3) Bring candy starting yesterday.  Any candy that will fit in a standard, small Easter egg.  Bring it to service or drop off at the office.  WE NEED LOTS AND LOTS OF CANDY!  We're hoping to have OVER 10,000, YES THAT'S 10,000 EGGS! Thanks for your help in this amazing event.

For any questions, please contact:
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.
