Bara Blast 11.05.15

Dear Bara,

BSM Fellowship: Twisted Root
This Sunday, immediately following service, we're inviting students to help us tear down and then head to lunch at Twisted Root (101 South Oak Street, Roanoke).  It'll be a great time of fellowship, great conversation, and delicious food.  Bring a few bucks and we'll see you there!

Sunday, November 15th, BSM is heading to WhirlyBall!  WhirlyBall has always been one of our biggest events and we love it!  WE have 50 reserved spots on a first come, first serve basis.  The cost is $10/student and that gets each students several games of WhirlyBall, pizza and a drink.  EVERY student must fill out a medical release form. We will meet at BNHS at 5:45pm and return about 8:45pm.  Please don't miss this exciting opportunity.
We will also need drivers to and from WhirlyBall so if you'd be willing and able, please contact Ryan.
If you have any questions about Bara Student Ministries (BSM), please contact the Youth Pastor, Ryan Bradley at  For more information on BSM, please visit
We will continue with lesson 2 of Professor Playtime’s Christmas Shop of Wonders. In B-Kids the children will learn that we should encourage other people with our words and actions. The Bible story will be from Luke 1:39-56; The Christmas story through the eyes of Elizabeth. The Bible verse is “So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11. Our Wee Kids will learn that we should say kind words. Their Bible story will be from Luke 1:39-56 also. Their Bible verse is “……the Father sent His Son to be the Savior of the world.” 1 John 4:14.

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.
