ission  Mission Committees are Calling
 oment  Posted November 16, 2017

The Chapel has three sub-divisions in the mission committees.  They are Local, Education and Global/National.  Any committee member will tell you the time spent working on any of these committees is very rewarding.  You get first-hand knowledge of what the Chapel's mission programs are doing in God's Kingdom.

The Local committee is led by Becky Watkins, Education is led by Peggy Mitchell and Global/National is led by Vicki Thompson.  You can check the website for the various missions currently being supported by the Chapel.  On the home page of the Chapel website, www.whitebluffchapel.org, click on "Get Involved with Missions" and there you can view all of the missions the Chapel supports.  You can also see some of the history of events and the current liaison/sponsor as well.  Each mission supported requires a member of the congregation be a liaison between the committee and ministry.

At this time there are openings for new members in all three committees.  If you find that God is calling you to join in a worthwhile endeavor, contact any of the committee chairs listed above.  They will be happy to talk about the missions they support and how you can become part of their team.

ission  Students Fed at Hill College
 oment  Posted November 16, 2017

by Lanette Browder

White Bluff Chapel provided lunch at United Christian Fellowship at Hill College on Monday, October 23.  We served about 45 students and staff and as always, the students were very appreciative of the lunch.

I was assisted by Ann Duncan and Jim Browder; Tricia Shelton was unable to go with us that day, but helped by making cookies for dessert. 



In April we also served lunch to about 50 students and staff and I was assisted by Kathy Dorsey and Helen Knight.  It is always nice to have such helpful volunteers.

Thanks to all of you.



      
ission  Chapel Members Spread and
Receive Halloween Cheer
 oment  Posted November 16, 2017

by Betty Newman

Saturday, October 28th proved to be another beautiful night in Whitney.  I say that in more ways than one.  Although the cool night air and beautiful sunset were outstanding, the atmosphere and fun evening in downtown was just as beautiful. 

The Church of Christ started the Trunk or Treat festivities at 4:00 with games, bouncy houses, performing artists and lots of candy.  The crowds then moved on over to downtown Whitney where the Whitney Police, Fire Department, and many area organizations had set up tables and displays for the trunk or treaters. 


Free hamburgers were given away by the city and hundreds of parents and children were dressed in costumes as they lined the streets to get goodies from the providers.  White Bluff Chapel partnered with other area churches and the Lake Whitney Ministerial Alliance to pass out Christian/faith based bracelets, pencils and tons of candy.


Our own Debbie Bradley led the way as she told children over and over how much Jesus loved them.  A highlight of the evening was when one of her students that she teaches in the public school system ran up and hugged her as he and his family came by the display. 

Becky Watkins and Paul Jacobson were on hand to help hand out candy and Paul saved the day with coffee toward the end of the evening.  We all needed a little "warming up" on the cool evening. 

It was such a fun evening to be out in the community and especially to partner with many other community churches.  It was definitely a "treat" for us.

What's Happening


Bell Ringing Time in Hill County
Posted November 16, 2017

by Harry Seurkamp

Soon it will be time for Salvation Army Red Kettle Bell Ringing. The Red Kettle Campaign kicks off on Friday, November 24th. White Bluff Chapel will ring in Tuesday, December 5th. From 8 AM to 8PM. As always, a signup sheet will be put in the Maurice Martin Fellowship Hall. We need four people per 2-hour periods at the Wal-Mart in Hillsboro. We need 24 individuals to sign up. So, grab you a partner and let's have some fun.

Also, there is a need for occasional Bell Ringers at Brookshire's in Whitney. Because we are not permitted to ring inside the entryway during bad weather, we only ring on good weather days. We ring from 10AM to 6PM. If you would like to take some time throughout the weeks before Christmas contact Harry Seurkamp at 694-7206.

You have probably received a card in the mail asking for donations for the Salvation Army in Dallas. If you would like to give and you would like the money to stay in Hill County, send your donations to, Salvation Army, Hill County Unit, and P.O. Box 1689, Whitney, Texas.

Thank you for all your support throughout the past years.


Chapel to Hold Advent Services
Posted November 16, 2017

WBC will be holding Wednesday Evening Advent Services beginning November 29, and continuing on December 6, 13, and 20. The Advent Service will begin at 7:00, and everyone is invited to join in the soup and dessert meal served beforehand at 6:30.

A $5.00 donation for the meal is appreciated. Any extra funds will go to the Food Bank.

Please sign up in the Fellowship Hall or call the church for an estimate of people coming to eat. But even if you don't sign up, there is always enough to go around, so come on and join in the fellowship!



Park Plaza Christmas Angels
Posted November 16, 2017

by Charlie and Chris Whisenand

Update: Cathy Cole is organizing Santa's Helpers for 9 am on Dec 12 this year. Bring donations to the Chapel or to Cathy. Contact her at cake27@windstream.net or 254-694-8375 to get involved.

There are some residents of Park Plaza that would like to be “adopted” by a White Bluff family for Christmas. We have a list of their sizes and what they enjoy doing. If you would like to adopt one or more of the residents, please let us know. We will send you a list of the residents and you will let us know your choice(s). You would buy them a present or two and wrap the present(s) putting their name on the outside. You can deliver the present(s) to Park Plaza to put under their Christmas tree for their Christmas party on Dec 15.

We will not be doing Santa’s Helpers this year.

You can contact us at cpwhisenand@yahoo.com. Thank you !
