ission  Athletes in Action Build Home in Mexico
 oment  Posted November 23, 2016

In June of 2016 the Global/National Mission Committee led by Vicki Thompson posted an article on the website about Athletes in Action (AIA).  The committee at that time was in the process of evaluating AIA to sponsor in 2017. 

The AIA report referenced in the article detailed the progress Brian Firle was making in the world of pro cycling.  Brian, the Chapel's contact with AIA, is a pro cyclist and it has given him credibility with the group.

Based on Brian's accomplishments and growth of his ministry, the Global/National committee voted to sponsor Brian and AIA in 2017.

The latest report received from Brian details the efforts of more than 30 professional athletes and industry professionals to rebuild a home for a family of eight in the Tijuana, Mexico area.  Their original home was destroyed by fire. 

You can view Brian's latest report on the Athletes in Action website.  Reading his report will explain why Global/National chose to sponsor AIA in 2017.  If you read the report you will want to spend six minutes to watch the video that was filmed and narrated by Phillip Jahn, a German professional basketball player.  It explains how the joy of the effort compares to a professional career.

If you want to know more about AIA you can contact Bill Burris, the Chapel liaison for AIA.



      
ission  White Bluff Chapel Provides Lunch
for Hill College Students and Faculty
 oment  Posted November 23, 2016


One of White Bluff Chapel's mission projects is to provide a free lunch each semester for students at the Wesley Foundation Building at Hill College. This is part of the Education Mission Committee, led by Peggy Mitchell, and was formerly called United Christian Fellowship. Several other churches in the Hillsboro area also participate in this program.


On November 7, they served almost 60 students and a few faculty members which was the largest group they have had in quite some time. All of the students were so polite and thanked the Chapel volunteers several times before and after their meal. The current campus minister is Casey Nader who is obviously encouraging the students and it was apparent in the turnout.



Lanette Browder is the coordinator for this project. Linda Yeary and Ann Duncan volunteered to help this time by making cookies for dessert and helping to serve the meal. The students love the homemade cookies. The committee will provide another meal in the spring semester and will need a couple of volunteers again. It is a very worthwhile and gratifying project in which to participate. For more information you can contact Lanette.

Santa's Helpers Needed at Park Plaza Nursing Home
Posted November 23, 2016

If you've been fortunate enough to have participated with the Santa's Helpers in the past, you know how much joy it brings to the residents of Park Plaza.  Share that joy with friends, family and neighbors this year. 

It’s time to start collecting small gift items (if you haven’t already started) for our Santa’s Helpers gift day at Park Plaza. Each year we collect gift items that the residents can select as a gift for their relatives and friends or sometimes a resident might say “I’d like that for myself”.  Both gifts for women and especially men are needed. Suggestions include: jewelry, puzzle books, lotions, socks, candles, handmade items, etc.  There is a collection tub in the Fellowship Hall. Items should be placed in the tub prior to or on Sunday, December 11.  


Volunteers are also needed on Tuesday, December 13 at 9:30 AM to help the residents select their gifts and wrap the gifts for them. There is a signup sheet in the fellowship hall.

Again this year you can also adopt a resident for Christmas. Several can use new clothes, house shoes, etc. Gift suggestions will be furnished for each resident who has needs this Christmas. If you have questions you can contact Charlie or Chris Whisenand at 694-8838.

Chapel Members Help with the Food Bank Food Drive
Posted November 23, 2016

On Friday November 18 members of WBC braved the cold north wind to help collect food donations for the local Food Bank.  WBC's time slot was 10:00 to noon.

Members Harry and Ginger Seurkamp, Jim Browder, Bill McKee, Gary Rose and Gary Williams along with other local churches and Whitney High School students collected and sorted the donations.  Herb Grubs was at the Food Bank.


Herb indicated this year's goal was 86,000 pounds of food.  He believes once all forms of donation are collected the total should reach 91,000 pounds.  He further indicated that they have achieved almost 84% of the goal for the building fund.

White Bluff Chapel is involved with many activities to help those in need in the Lake Whitney area.
