Memories of Cos


Even When Cos Met with Strangers…
Posted May 30, 2019

by Kathy Groppel


Several years ago, a friend of mine, Debbie Alford, was in her final stages of cancer. She didn't attend church at all. George Collins set up a time for Terry to go over and talk with Debbie. She was already at the stage where she could not get out of bed. He went in and sat with her and I'm not sure what their conversation was all about. When Terry came out, we asked how it went and he said, "Well I put her right to sleep, just like I do everyone in church."



VBS'n with Cos
Posted May 30, 2019

by Kay Lea Scott

It was the last day of my first White Bluff Chapel Vacation Bible School experience.   I found myself sitting beside Cos in the back of the sanctuary during the closing activities.  I was a helper in the Drama/Story section and didn’t know Cos very well.  We chuckled over one child’s response to “What did you learn today?”  He very seriously stated, “We learned the Parable of the Three Little Pigs.”   (Drama had been trying to teach that the rock of Jesus is the best foundation.)

 Our conversation praised the fantastic talent, energy and ingenuity God had collected at White Bluff Chapel.   I think I might have babbled something like, “It’s just too good to keep it to ourselves.”  Perhaps we could grow the experience; attract more children and parents as well as grandparents; take it to Whitney.  Only God knew what was to come.

Through the years I learned how much Cos loved VBS, and I also learned, it was my calling.  He enthusiastically supported almost every crazy idea brought to him.  He thoroughly enjoyed being involved and from the beginning, he wanted a western-themed VBS.

It took a few years.  The first year Cos was covered in a collection of boxes to play a transformer.  He “transformed” into the guy that loved the Lord.  The next year he was a skeptical kid who after meeting Wonder Woman, Superman, Spiderman and other super heroes, realized Jesus is the only true super hero.  That was the year, while pointing to Cos, one of the children asked, “Isn’t he your pastor?  Doesn’t he know about Jesus?”

VBS popcorn and movie nights were Cos’s idea.  We’d gather at the Old Course pavilion to watch a movie related to the VBS theme.  Those VBS concepts were with us from sun up to sun down and beyond.  When he had a minute Cos could be found mingling in the hallways of VBS activities.

The year that the western-themed VBS, “Sonwest,” finally arrived had to be one of his favorites.  It was campfire, s’mores and movie night.  There was so much support and many extra donations.  We even had horse-drawn wagon rides and a petting zoo on the last day.  But, to me, the best part was Cos.  He got to be the “good guy” bringing the Bible and God’s story to the old western town of Dirt Clod.  He also rid the town of its sinning nemesis, Dirty Daryl.

God blessed the VBS team with ideas that gave Cos a platform to reach parents, children, friends and grandparents with God’s invitation during those weeks.  He always had just the right words for an exhausted, frustrated VBS director.  One day, tears threatening, I asked, “Doesn’t God want me to bring others to him, even those that don’t belong to the Chapel?” He soothed my ruffled feathers and helped me see God’s desire to grow His kingdom in the light of our children’s safety.  Then came the year I was rushing to get something for VBS and decided to grab a coffee from McDonald’s.  It was several months later before I learned it was Cos who “paid forward” for me in the drive-through lane.  No wonder that “free coffee” tasted so good!  His eyes just twinkled when I finally got to say “thank you.”

Cos never missed a chance to say thank you and tell the VBS team we had done a good job.  I will carry one of his emails in my day planner always.

So I’m walking down the hall at the chapel this am.  I see all kinds of glitter looking stuff in the carpet.  I think to myself that they haven’t had time to vacuum yet.  Some of the glitter stuck to my shoes.  I examined it more closely back in the office as it didn’t appear to have the same qualities as regular glitter.  Turns out it was dust from angel wings.  Who knew?   Cos

Every time I come through the gates of White Bluff, I see the sparkling dust from Cos’ angel wings everywhere and I’m comforted with the thought that God needed him for heaven’s 2019 VBS.  I hope it has a western theme.

What We've Done


Chapel Hosts Whitney High School Jazz Band
Posted May 30, 2019

On Monday, May 20, the Chapel hosted the Whitney High School Band “New Blue” and brass, clarinet and percussion ensembles under the direction of Elizabeth Martinez and Josh Nowlin.


These accomplished student musicians presented selections ranging from the beautiful (Brass Quartet and Clarinet Quartet) to driving rhythms (State-Advancing! Percussion Ensemble) and “New Blue” Jazz Band’s set, which was capped with director Nowlin’s rousing arrangement of Freddie Mercury’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”




It was a great evening! If you were unable to attend, don’t miss their return engagement sometime this fall.
