Dear Bara,

Pastor Joel will continue with part 3 of the series titled The Beauty of Grace.He will be preaching from Galatians 3 and has named this third part, Smart Start. Foolish Finish. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

30 for 30 Challenge
This past Sunday, Pastor Joel told the church about our 30 for 30 Challenge.  It's a challenge to invite 30 people over the next 30 days (ends on Easter) and the staff will be providing 30 creative and fun ways to help.  The Challenge starts tomorrow!  Please be prayerfully considering who God would have you ask to join us for Easter.  Also, ask Him to give you the eyes to see those who might not initially think of so that you can see and invite them as well.  The website goes live tomorrow (or you can get a sneak peek right now if you'd like) at
Also, you'll see there are downloadable graphics for the Glow Egg Hunt as well as our Easter service so you can share them on social media.  Don't miss this challenge to invite friends, family, stranger, and anybody and everybody to hear the greatest story ever!
Bara 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.  Head over to for more information and downloadable graphics.
BSM Serve: Stuffing Easter Eggs
This Sunday night at the Bara Church Office (100 Indian Creek, Trophy Club) we'll be stuffing over 3,000 Easter eggs for our upcoming Glow Egg Hunt.  We'll have snacks, music going, and laughing a lot as we work.  We need all the help we can get so grab a friend, or two, and come join us!

The Bible story for this lesson is from James 5:13-16, The Life of King Asa (2 Chronicles 14-16). Our Wee Kids will be taught the importance of forgiving others. The Bible story for this lesson will be from Matthew 18:23-33, Story of the Unforgiving Debtor.
The M.O.B (Men of Bara) meet at the Trophy Club Country Club, 500 Trophy Club Dr. on Wednesdays from 6am – 7am. We are studying Biblical truths to help make men stronger. 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.
