Have something to say about your own experience at Bar Church? We would love to hear it!

Submit Experience

This week we discussed our personal identity. Specifically — how do we let these three lies define our value?

  1. I am what I DO. (i.e., activities, decisions, mistakes)
  2. I am what I HAVE. (i.e., possessions, talents, skills)
  3. I am what others SAY about me

How is it possible for good people to disagree strongly on major topics? Why do we primarily associate with people we agree with and what are the ramifications of doing so? And what was it that really got Jesus killed?

On our 1st anniversary for every person that showed up we donated $10 to the organizations that we worked with in year one of Bar Church. People came to celebrate — then they chipped in and we ended up with over $2500 for organizations we worked with in our first year. Not one big gift, simply people doing their part.
