ission  White Bluff VBS Wins with
"Back to the Basics" Approach
 oment  Posted July 11, 2019

by Nancie Yarbro

It took 63 adult volunteers and 15 teen volunteers to put on this year's "Back to the Basics" VBS for 84 children.  There was a good mix of Chapel members’ grandchildren and non-Chapel children participating this year who enjoyed the simplified approach just as much (or more?) than the previous years with elaborate costumes, decorations, etc.

Through Bible stories, snack, crafts, science and music the children learned about creation and sin, the promise of a Savior, Jesus' perfect life, death and resurrection, and then Jesus' call to do God's work. 




The Tweens (early teens) continued their VBS experience into the afternoon each day by doing mission trips to the Food Pantry and Town Hall Nursing Home.  They also worked a car wash in which they raised $636 that will be divided amongst Isaiah's Place, Food Pantry and the WB Volunteer Fire Department.

Several people from Isaiah's Place came each day and taught the children to sign songs in American Sign Language.  This was truly a highlight of the week.

This year's VBS was organized and run by the Children's Committee.  It was a wonderful collaboration of people who love Jesus and love children.




      
ission  Critter Ladies Honored for Local Mission Service
 oment  Posted July 11, 2019

by Sandy Cannon

The Chapel Critter ladies were given a special treat on May 28. They were honored with a luncheon from our Local Missions committee, commemorating their work with the Hillsboro Mission Clinic. The goal of the event was to thank the ladies for all the work they have done for the Hillsboro Mission Clinic, providing hand-crafted critters each month for the children treated at the clinic. 


The luncheon was catered by Mary Parish, Hospitality Chair of White Bluff Chapel. We were served a delicious spinach quiche, cinnamon pears on lettuce and seasoned bread sticks with iced tea and very berry blueberry pie. Many thanks to Mary and her crew of ladies who helped serve the wonderful meal. 

Special thanks to Terry Boyer for the pictures and to Becky McKee for additional information about the clinic.


Becky McKee, Missions liaison to the Hillsboro Clinic, introduced guest speaker, Becky Jones, Clinic Director. Jones provided information about this clinic which serves the working poor of Hill County. These are people who are working but have no insurance. 

The Clinic is open the first Saturday of each month, with people beginning to line up as early as 4:30 in the morning. They see an average of 80 to 90 patients each day they are open. With a staff of 5 physicians, R. N.'s and phlebotomists, each person who visits the clinic is talked to and prayed for. It is not unusual to see 5 or 6 people accept the Lord! They do all of this work in the name of our loving Savior Jesus. Those interested in this mission should call Becky McKee at 254-694-4058.

The Chapel has been a sponsor of Isaiah's Place for a number of years.  Many Chapel members, over that time, have volunteered to assist our IP neighbors at their camp for the hearing impaired in various ways. 

Recently Diane Frederickson, Isaiah’s Place Director and WB Chapel Liaison, asked a few attendees at Isaiah’s Place to compose some thank-you notes to the Chapel.   Some of those notes are included with this message.  You can see that the assistance provided by the Chapel means a lot to those who attend and work through Isaiah's Place.

IP’s Chaplain Raymond accompanied Diane Frederickson to some of the Chapel's VBS activities this summer. They helped some of our VBS kids to learn a little American Sign Language and to sign the songs they were singing.

A garage sale fundraiser benefitting Isaiah’s Place is scheduled for July 26-27, 8 am – 2 pm. Good quality donations (excluding clothing) are sought. Call IP for arrangements. The event will be held at the TAX Office, The Accountant Experts at 401 Brazos St., near downtown.



Family Camp is being held the first weekend of August at Isaiah’s Place. What a fun way for folks to learn to better communicate with a deaf member of their family! Spread the word…



      
ission  Wee Can Know Ministry Holds New Orleans VBS
 oment  Posted July 11, 2019

Phil and Debbie Smith recently reported on the Heroes-themed VBS that Wee Can Know Ministries recently held in June 2019.  The couple has been very good at providing the Chapel with the activities and progress of the Ministry.  The group continues to reach and teach the youth of the New Orleans ninth-ward area as well as teach others to conduct Good News Clubs throughout the area.

On May 30th Phil Smith retired from military service.  He had spent his last 10 years as Chaplain with the Louisiana National Guard.  During that time, the unit was called up for a six-month tour in Iraq.

If you would like to know more about the Wee Can Know Ministry, you can contact Bill Burris, the Chapel's liaison with Wee Can Know.

You can read their latest report and also read their latest thank you.

Building Spiritual Movements Everywhere

So much has happened in the last two months!

For the last few months we have been heavily investing in building a spiritual movement in professional mountain-bike racing, and boy, it has been awesome! We started with targeting a few of the bigger mountain bike events and began seeking out where God might be at work. Already we have a stellar little crew of believers, both men and women, whom we are already investing in. Our goal is to have them grow deeper in their walk with Christ and use their platform to impact the sport. We attended the first two Epic-Rides series races, as well as Marathon National Championships in Texas. All three races were amazing ground to plant seeds and see what God might grow.

Over the summer, I will continue to be training our interns to take over some of these responsibilities so we can have more coverage of chaplains and ministers throughout the different cycling disciplines. Throughout the process of growing a spiritual movement in mountain biking, it has felt much like the road-racing side of the sport did over 4 years ago when I joined the staff team. Little by little, God has added to our number and has expanded our impact to be global and internationally recognized. This is just the beginning!

One of my favorite parts of the process so far is seeing our impact with not only athletes, but also team owners, mechanics, and other folks who are involved in the professional racing scene. Our focus is on the athlete, but our scope involves everyone who touches the sport. Our hope: to bring more athletes to Jesus and help them grow in their faith.

You can read more to see pictures and text of team members who have recently won, as well as this year's schedule for the team.

What We've Done


Over the Hill Care Group Meets
Posted July 11, 2019

On June 15 the Over the Hill Care Group convened at the Lone Star Room for their quarterly gathering.  The hosts, Bill and Aggie Gladbach and Ron and Susie Quiggins, selected weddings as the feature of the party.  Those attending were asked to bring a wedding picture.  A game of the guests matching the correct couple's names with their pictures proved more challenging than one would expect.



25 members attended and were treated to grilled hamburgers with all the trimmings along with a variety of desserts.  Ron Quiggins tied the day's event of Father's Day to celebrating our Father in Heaven prior to offering the blessing.



The wedding theme had been chosen since Bill and Aggie Gladbach had recently celebrated their 56th anniversary.  Bill Gladbach shared with the group how he and Aggie had gotten together and how long afterwards they were married.  That prompted other couples to do the same.  It was a very entertaining part of the evening.

The next gathering will be in September for the annual tailgate party.
