ission  College Grad Thanks WBC
 oment  Posted July 17, 2014

Jacob Peacock, a 2010 Whitney High School graduate recently graduated from Hardin-Simmons University of Abilene, paid a June visit to White Bluff Chapel to thank the members of the congregation for having supported his college education with a 4-year WBC scholarship. Peacock earned a Bachelor of Behavioral Science degree in history with a minor in coaching. He will begin his career in teaching and coaching this fall in the Saginaw ISD, just north of Fort Worth.

Peacock thanked the Chapel for what we do for the youth of Whitney and commented on the doors of opportunity opened to students via the WBC scholarship. Saying that our faith in him and our generosity have blessed his life and those of many others, he hopes this program will continue to bless many more.

Jacob was also awarded the Long-Bristow Endowed Memorial Scholarship from Hardin-Simmons University in 2013. Students receiving these scholarships are preparing for careers in teaching, athletic training and sports medicine, and/or fitness and sports sciences.

Peacock was one of twenty students during the university’s spring graduation named to Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities. An active member of the Hardin Simmons football team for four years, he was also a member of Kappa Delta Pi, an international honor society in education. Bill McKee of WBC served as Jacob’s mentor throughout his college career.


      
ission  Shoe Delivery Highlights WBC Collection Month
 oment  Posted July 17, 2014

On July 9, Marelia Geren, Kathy Dorsey, Caroline Upchurch, Kay German and Ann McAlpin delivered 164 pairs of shoes from the WBC June Shoe Drive to Buckner International in Mesquite. Most of these shoes were collected during Vacation Bible School week, when VBS children donated the shoes and wrote personal notes to the orphans destined to receive them.



These ladies volunteered in the Buckner warehouse for the afternoon, preparing shoes to be shipped to South America for orphan children.  Additionally, the ladies sorted 17,000 pairs of shoes that Varsity.com had donated. They also wrote notes to accompany the shoes.   

Following the work time, Sara Beth Tunnell of Buckner International showed the ladies around the warehouse and shared about Buckner’s outreach in the local community and throughout the world.


      
ission  A Parable in Today's World
 oment  Posted July 17, 2014

Two years ago the Global/National Mission Committee chose to support a ministry in the New Orleans area, called Wee Can Know (WCK). This is a non-denominational ministry to the children of the area that provides the children an opportunity to give their lives over to Christ.  You may remember Phil and Debbie Smith from when they visited the Chapel in May of 2013.
     
Since that time, WCK has been able to grow and assist others with their ministry.  Recent events parallel Jesus' parable of the sower, found in Mathew 13.3-8, Mark 4.26-29 and Luke 8.5-8.

White Bluff Chapel member Canda Cox reached out to our Missions Committee, seeking assistance for a start-up church that her daughter and son-on-law, Kyle and Suzy Jagers, have formed in New Orleans.  The name of the church is New Orleans Louisiana Baptist Church, NOLA.  The seeds WBC has sown through our support and communication with WCK will produce assistance for NOLA through the already-established New Orleans group.
 
Bill Burris, WBC Global/National Mission Committee member, reached out to WCK to see if they could be of some assistance.  They were more than happy to work with NOLA and have established a sound relationship with them.  WCK hopes to be assisting with the training of members of NOLA as soon as Canda's daughter is available for training.  Additionally, by putting WCK in contact with NOLA, WCK got introduced to another local church that may, in turn, provide funding support for WCK's ministry.

Bill reflects that it's a wonderful thing to be able to sit back and watch the effects of the seeds we sow on fertile soil.  The result has intertwined people and communities.  By staying involved from here and tending the seeds, WCK is helping more children find direction and seek Christ as their Savior.

On behalf of both WCK and NOLA, Bill asks for our prayers for the continued success of their ministries and also for success in working together.


What's Happening


New Video Added to WBC History Series
Posted July 17, 2014

Video: Scholarship Program

The White Bluff Chapel website features a series of videos and history articles under our “Who We Are” tab. A new addition to that series is a documentary video chronicling the White Bluff Chapel scholarship program during its ten years of assisting graduates of Whitney and Blum to attend college.  Dale Thompson, founder and CEO of Leadership Worth Following and a member of White Bluff Chapel, has produced that video and offers it to the website to carry as a permanent feature in our History Series.

The scholarship program and this documentary serve as a tribute to the dedication of White Bluff Chapel’s Missions Committee, our scholarship committee, and the members of White Bluff Chapel who participate in many ways with this program.



New Fall Disciple Class Announced
Posted July 17, 2014

Although we are in the triple-digit heat of July, the Women’s Wednesday morning Bible Study Class is now planning ahead for this upcoming year’s Disciple study, which will begin soon after Labor Day.  The title of the study is “Under the Tree of Life.”  It conveys “the promise of finding shelter, security, and rest in God’s love.”  The 32-week study focuses on the Old Testament Writings (those books which are not Torah or Prophets) and the New Testament books of John 1, 2, 3 and Revelation.

We need to determine if there is enough interest in this study so that materials can be ordered this month while they are on sale.  Fifteen people are needed for the class to be offered.  Everyone is welcome to attend. You do NOT need to have participated in the previous classes of Disciple 1 or 2 in order to join this class; they are essentially non-related. 

The class will meet in the fall on Thursday afternoons from 2:00 – 4:30.

Those who are interested should contact the chapel office (254-694-7060), Ann McAlpin (254-694-7880), or Sandy Moore (254-694-0050).

What We've Done


Farewell to Kathy and James Ward
Posted July 17, 2014

In recognition of Kathy and James Ward's last Sunday with us, we held a reception in their honor after the worship service on July 6. Jim has been a teacher and baseball coach at Whitney and Itasca High Schools and Kathy, a Hillsboro Junior High School teacher, has been our talented organist. They arrived at White Bluff Chapel just in time for Kathy to consult on the purchase of our Allen Protégé organ in 2011. We’ve learned to love them through Kathy’s inspired musical contributions during worship services and throughout James’ ordeal as he endured a double-lung transplant. His witnessing to the congregation during that time was particularly moving.




Music Director Tom Reedy and the WBC choir presented Kathy a framed picture with a Bible verse (Proverbs 3:5-6) on it. At the reception, they also presented Kathy with the love offerings received.



James has accepted teaching and coaching positions in Menard (in west Texas) and Kathy accepted a teaching position in Eden. (Cos warns Kathy to watch out for the snakes!) Their new location will put them much closer to their sons, who live in west Texas and New Mexico.

Pianist Betty Newman’s and Kathy's last joint-presentation offertory to the congregation was a beautiful (and emotional) four-handed piano duet of "Come Thou Fount."
