BSM Evangelism: Cowboys Kickoff Party
This Sunday night, the Dallas Cowboys kickoff their season and we're going to make a party out of it.  Kickoff is at 7:30 but come a few minutes early to make a plate of delicious food and grab a seat for what will hopefully be a great game.  We'll be meeting at the Beard's place (215 Fresh Meadow Dr. TC).  We'll have all the good stuff.  You just need to invite some friends and come hang out and relax!  We hope to see you there!

This Sunday we will continue with our new Elevate Curriculum, Spy Chase. The B-Kids will be taught that when we are afraid, we can pray to God for peace because He is with us. Their Bible story will be from 2 Kings 6:8-23, Elisha and the Army. Their Bible verse will be from Psalm 56:3, But when I am afraid I will put my trust in you. Our Wee Kids will be taught that friends put others first. Their Bible story will from Genesis 13, Abraham and Lot.
500k Meal Marathon
This is an all-day (7A-6P) community event on Saturday, September 19th, where hundreds of volunteers, on teams, form assembly lines to package meals to be sent directly to people in Haiti.
There are five shifts and each Table Leader needs 10 Packaging volunteers for each shift, which means there are 50 slots to fill! :)
Details, a training video and registration is all available on this website click here.
To select the shift you would be willing to serve just click on "Packagers" and select Green Team Nagengast. There are LOTS of tables, so if this table is full at your preferred time, you could pick another team, or choose another time!  You can serve more than one shift.
This is also a great service opportunity for students. Anyone 12 & up can EASILY handle a whole shift, and even some task-oriented 10 year-olds can do it!

We are now planning a couple of events that you will hear more about as details are finalized, but I want to start spreading the word. This Fall we would like to have a Guys Night Out so that we can get together, hang out, share stories and just have a great time together. Some other plans are for a day retreat somewhere and a golf tournament.
Please mark your calendars as we will be attending the Men’s Conference at The Hills Church on January 29th & 30th. This is a Friday night and Saturday morning local event that would be great for us all to attend. As I receive more details on this event I will pass the information along.
I am excited about what God is doing in our church and I look forward to the future and what He has in store for us. If you have any questions or just want to talk please feel free to contact me 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 directions to the Bara Church office click here.
