Dear Bara,

We look forward to seeing you this Sunday as Pastor Joel preaches from Matthew 6:13. The title of his message will be The Principal of the Principal.

Live Like Josh Service Opportunity
This Saturday, at Byron Nelson High School, Bara has the privilege to partner with the Live Like Josh Foundation and their Basketball Fundraising Tournament.  They've asked us to help serve where need on the day of.  We have available spots to serve from 9:30am-noon,noon-2, 2-4, and 4-6pm.  Please contact Ryan Bradley at 972-898-1673 if you'd like to help serve and bless the LLJ Foundation and the Hernandez family.

The lesson goal for B-Kids is for the children to learn that their feet should remind them to follow God wherever He leads them. The main point of their lesson is to follow God and make good choices. Their Bible story will be from (Exodus 13:17 – 14:31) The People of Israel follow God. In Wee Kids the children will learn that God wants friends to say kind words. Their Bible story will be from 1 Samuel 25, Abigail says kind words to David.

Data Drive
We are conducting a "Data Drive" at Bara Church. The goal is to ensure that we have accurate information in our database (aka BaraBase) in order to properly engage our people, assist others in ministry, and get people plugged in.
You will find packets being distributed on Sunday, September 27 through Sunday, October 11. These can be filled out and returned to church the Sunday after you pick it up, or swing by the office and drop it off.
This initiative is very important to us. Please feel free to reach out to Clint Schroeder by emailing or calling 817-291-2020 if you have any questions/comments/concerns.

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.

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.
