What's Happening


Save the Date to Volunteer with Men's Ministry
Posted February 13, 2020

The Men’s Ministry will, as in past years, have a very important job to do preparing the Nazarene Church for the annual Whitney High School College and Career Day. Please join them at 9 AM on Tuesday, February 18, to set up the various rooms and venues that the volunteer professionals, educators, career military and others will use to expose the High School Seniors to the Wonderful World of Adulthood.

The project usually is finished well before noon.

Also, please plan to reconvene on Thursday at 2 PM, February 20 to deconstruct and put away all of the tables and chairs.

Many volunteers from the White Bluff Community work very hard to make this event relevant and useful to these students.  Please plan on joining the Men's Ministry for this project. Contact Rick Faught, Chair of the Men’s Ministry, at 817-913-0777.

Yarbros Visit with "Hopeful Tuesdays"
Posted February 13, 2020

by Nancie Yarbro

There is a warehouse near UT Southwest and Love Field in Dallas that serves lunch to the homeless of Dallas on four days of the week. The people who come to "Hopeful Tuesdays" for a meal can also take a shower and wash their clothes. When Jodie and I arrived, there were about a dozen people sitting at tables reading, visiting, and just hanging out inside where it was warm. We were told it was a slow day due to the cold. The homeless had either found a shelter to stay in or more than likely had found a covered area and didn't want to leave it for someone else. Some of the churches had opened their doors because it was below 32 degrees.

By the time we had served lunch, more than 24 people had wandered in. We visited with all of them, heard their stories, gave hugs and asked what they needed. Mostly they wanted to talk. Some had drug issues, some mental issues and some were just down on their luck. One couple had lost their home when their apartment building was condemned. Everything they owned was in the apartment and they couldn't get back in. Imagine losing your clothes, cooking supplies and most of all your family pictures. Their 10-year-old son had to go live with a cousin.

This is a faith-based mission. We heard a lot of talk of God's grace and mercy. There was a lot of love in that room.

They loved the toiletries you guys donated!!! We also took them some warm clothes and cookies. Jody's old office donated toothpaste and toothbrushes.

We will go back and would be happy to take anything you want to donate. They need warm clothes, walking shoes, socks, underwear (men's and women's), pants, coats, etc. They love to read!! So bring any books you can spare. You can leave your items in the bins in Fellowship Hall and we'll ensure they get to the right place.

Thank you for your generosity.

Carpenter's Vocal Solo Draws Enthusiastic Response
Posted February 13, 2020



During Chapel Worship Service on February 9, Paula Carpenter shared her musical talent both on piano and voice.  Following her piano solo for the Offertory, she played and sang the special music in place of the choir presenting the anthem.  Carpenter chose the song, "Tell Me More," to the delight of the congregation, which gave her an enthusiastic round of applause.

Paula is just one of many generous Chapel members eager to share their musical talent to enhance the worship experience.



Bible Study Ladies Pull Off Birthday Surprise
Posted February 13, 2020

On Friday, February 7, the Friday Women’s Bible Study group surprised Mary Parish with a salad luncheon to honor her on her birthday.  They provided her with a birthday “crown” and a cake and showered her with cards. 

Mary is usually the one creating the various luncheons and other meal treats for Chapel events. She seemed surprised and pleased to be the on the receiving end this time.  In the photo, Mary is in the center with the crown and mask.

The Bible Study ladies come every Friday from various churches to meet at 10 AM in Fellowship Hall. They study the Bible, see DVDs and study different religious books.  At the moment they are studying the book, Overcomers, by Dr. David Jeremiah.  Pat Griffin leads the discussions.


Annual Chili Cook Off 2020 Draws Record Crowd
Posted February 13, 2020

by Rick Faught

A huge THANK YOU! and a round of applause to all who participated in the 2020 edition of the Men's Ministry Chili Cook off . Over  100 smiling faces were counted enjoying the event and sampling the wide variety of chili entries.  Thank you to everyone who assisted, in addition to the judges.  It was quite the efficient operation. 
 
This year the number of judges was increased from four to five. Serving as judges were Mark and Debbie Hamner, Paul and Becky Jacobus, and Mike Miller.  All of the judges had had previous judging experience and there was very little difference in the scores, which must indicate that WBC has a lot of good chili cooks.

There were 20 entries in four categories and the winners were:

Wild Game - Ron Williams
With Beans - Nancy Yarbro
Mild - Holly Faught
Hot - Vicki Shultz (using Jerry's recipe)
 
The Grand Champion from across the four categories was Holly Faught, for the second time since the event started!

The Men's Ministry netted over $700 on this year's event, their only fund-raiser of the year. The funds are destined to be used on various charitable projects throughout our Whitney community.
