Dear Bara,

Check your email tomorrow for a special word that Pastor Joel will send to you.

BSM Worship: Fruit of the Spirit 

If you like fruit, friends, fun, or any of the above, then join us this Sunday night as we'll have all three!  It'll be a night that includes games, music, worship, laughter, fellowship, and some good conversation about the Holy Spirit.  We'll be gathering at the Bradleys (4004 Shrike Trail, Roanoke) from 6-7:15pm. 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


The children will learn that we should pray and ask God for help, especially when we encounter difficult problems. The Bible story will be about Hannah and Samuel (1 Samuel 1.) Our Wee kids will be remembering things that the disciples did to work hard, as well as see some ways that they can work hard. Their Bible study will be on sending out the disciples (Luke 10:1-20.)

Baptism Sunday

This Sunday, April 19th, we will be having baptisms immediately after the gathering. This is always an exciting Sunday in the life of our church. If you are interested in or have any questions about being baptized, go to 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 more information and directions to the Bara Church office click here.
