What's Happening

W.B. Art & Craft Show Promises Great Christmas Shopping
Posted October 23, 2014

Harry Seurkamp reports that his committee is very excited about this year’s Art and Craft Show, being held at White Bluff Chapel. Mark your calendars for November 1 and 2, Saturday and Sunday.

This year they have many new artists and hobbyists. Seurkamp assures us that our eyes will marvel at many beautiful works of art, such as stained glass by Larry Dix and woodturnings by Steve Longino. Also debuting at the event will be oil paintings by Jeannine Starr, jewelry by Amy Dupre, sock puppets by Wendy Anderson and even a display table from Lillie's of the Valley. Gloria Blair will hold a book signing.

Returning artists will feature Toni Wengler, Jim Browder, Hoppy Hart, Gwyn Holden, Mary Parish, Sandy DiLorenzo, and eight more. There will be 21 artists in all.

The show will feature paintings, photography, glass art, woodwork and carving, jewelry, baked goods (when you can place your Thanksgiving order), books and book signing, and fiber arts, such as quilting, sewing, puppets, and Critters with Sandy Cannon.

Bring your Christmas list. There will be numerous ideas for that special person or persons on your list. We look forward to entertaining you.

The show will be held from 10AM to 4PM on Saturday November 1 and from 11AM (after the worship service) until 1PM on Sunday.

Autumn Ladies Luncheon Open to All
Posted October 23, 2014

White Bluff Chapel will host an autumn luncheon on Wednesday, November 12, for all ladies in the church, as well as visitors. It is intended that this event serve as a good way to extend outreach to our neighbors and community who might be interested in visiting WBC. The luncheon provides an opportunity for feminine fellowship, on a variation of the spring Mother’s Day luncheon, and will last from 11:30 – 1:30. There is no charge for the meal, and reservations can be made by signing up in Fellowship Hall or calling the Chapel office at 254-694-7060.

Last year at this event, Janet Dennison was the guest speaker. Her message addressed topics particularly relevant to women and our faith. This year Ann McAlpin, whose teachings are always well-received and relevant to our lives, will deliver the keynote address. Since Pastor Terry Cosby has been teaching about Revelation and Associate Pastor Betty Newman has taught a series on Heaven, Ann has chosen to follow up those studies by giving insights to "Examining Your Faith," which will fit right in with our quest to see each other in Heaven.

McAlpin will be focusing on Hebrews 11 & 12. Some teaser questions to contemplate include:

  • What is faith?  What are the characteristics of faith?  How is it evidenced in the life of a person?
  • Has my faith increased?  Has my faith been tested?
  • What can we learn from the lives of people of great faith?

Mary Parish will be preparing the meal, which will be covered by the hospitality committee. Those wishing to make a donation to help cover the cost are certainly welcome to do so.

Food for Families Volunteers Sought
Posted October 23, 2014

The annual food drive benefitting Our Daily Bread Food Bank is scheduled for Friday, November 21 at the Whitney Church of Christ parking lot. This community-wide event will once again be promoted by KWTX Channel 10 TV from Waco, Texas.

Director Diana VanWagner reports that in addition to the Chapel volunteers who work the 10 to 12 shift, there is also a need for supervision throughout the day.  VanWagner is not able to be there the entire 14 hours and she is looking for volunteers to help keep operations running smoothly during her absences.

Seven churches work in two-hour shifts (6 a.m. to 8 p.m.), but each group of these volunteers needs instruction on set-up and packing of boxes, recycling, etc.  Also, someone is needed to hand out thank-you notes to donors and write donation receipts if requested. 

At 6 a.m., there is a breakfast run for the church only (donuts, burritos, etc.) and at noon, lunches for both locations (Church AND Food Bank - usually Subway).

Help in any of these areas would be a blessing. To participate, contact Diana VanWagner at 694-1372.

Donated Candy Sought for Halloween Fun
Posted October 23, 2014

The Children’s Ministry will be participating in downtown Whitney’s Halloween activities on Friday, October 31 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.  They have ordered some faith-based pencils and other items to hand out that night, but also want to hand out candy. 

The Children’s Ministry staff is asking for donations from the congregation of bags of individually-wrapped candies to give out to Trick or Treaters, along with the faith-based items.  A collection box will be available in the Maurice Martin Fellowship Hall to receive the candy through Sunday, October 26.

What We've Done

Griffin Ranch BBQ Draws Crowd
Posted October 23, 2014

The autumn barbeque at Pat and Jim Griffin's J-G Ranch on Saturday, October 18, was a rousing success. A crowd of about 100 members of White Bluff Chapel gathered to enjoy the crisp fall weather, good food, and great fellowship. Barbecue beef, pork, venison and sausage were furnished by the Griffins and prepared by chef Danny Bodeker, and the guests furnished a scrumptious array of potluck side dishes that was served up by Mary Parish and members of her hospitality committee.

A big thank you goes out to the Griffins for their generous hospitality and for making this occasion such a highly-anticipated and enjoyable fellowship event.
