    Need help with stacking order

    Hi All,

    I'm redesigning my church's website. This is what I need it to do:

    1) body_container should be a background rotating image
    2) top_bar keeps going behind the body_container when I implement various jquery or css background image rotators.

    Basically, how can I have the top_bar div tag to always be on top within the body_container and rotating images? I tried z-index but that doesn't do it.

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    
    <head>
    <title>Welcome to Arcola Covenant Community!</title>
    <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <style type="text/css">
    body {
    	background-image:url(images/background.png);
    	background-repeat: repeat;
    }
    #logo {
    	width: 900px;
    	margin: 25px auto 35px auto;
    }
    #body_container {
    	width: 900px;
    	height: 550px;
    	background-color:#FFF;
