Baptism Sunday
Next Sunday, August 16th, we will be having baptisms immediately following the Sunday morning gathering.  If you have any questions or would like to take the next step and be baptized, go to or please contact
Our B-Kids lesson goal will be for the children to learn that we should spend time every day worshipping God. The main point will be: I will keep on Worshiping God Every Day! Our Bible story will be: The people celebrate God (Nehemiah 12:27-47). The Bible verse is: “I will praise you every day; yes, I will praise you forever.” Psalm 145:2. Our Wee Kids Main Point will be: I Will Stay Calm When I Am Angry! Their Bible story will be: Nehemiah stays calm (Nehemiah 4). Their Bible verse is: “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good.” Galatians 6:9.

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.
