ission  Men's Ministry Builds Ramp for Hillsboro Couple
 oment  Posted October 22, 2020

After the Monday morning Men’s Bible Study on September 28, a team of seven White Bluff Chapel volunteers were joined by two men from King Memorial UMC to build a handicap ramp for a thankful client in Hillsboro.  Acting on a referral received through the Texas Ramp Project, the job was completed in just three hours, using materials funded by the Heart of Texas Area Agency on Aging.  The group felt blessed that the folks served were fellow Christians and expressed their thanks for the ramp and the prayers offered by pastors Randy Marshall and Brad Slaten.  The team also enjoyed hearing personal stories from the client’s husband, who goes by the name of “Tex.”  For many years he was the deep voice of “Big Tex” at the Texas State Fair in Dallas.  You can read their thank-you note.




Thank-you notes continue to be received, thanking the men of the ramp project of Hill County.  There is one that comes from Betty Elmore.  Betty is Terry Cosby’s mother’s cousin.  Her place in Mertens is close to where Terry’s parents live.  You can read Mrs. Elmore’s thank-you note.



      
ission  Meeting Today's Challenges
 oment  Posted October 22, 2020

With Brian’s latest AIA (Athletes in Action) report, you will find a meaningful message for this period of our lives as we deal with COVID-19 and other “natural disasters.”  You are encouraged to read the remainder of Brian’s report after finishing the section below. 


the challenging invitation of trust

Imagine being an athlete rolling into early 2020 on top of your game. You're getting stronger, faster, smarter. You know that this year will more than likely result in the best performances of your life, so you buckle down and focus even harder. The first race of the year, you win…by a landslide. You know this is a great sign of what is to come in 2020. Then COVID hits.

You're sidelined. Not because you can't compete, but because the whole racing calendar is being systematically cancelled. Every dream of potential and the places you were intended to go are crushed. You pick up the pieces and soldier on, training like normal for races that don't exist. After all, you're an athlete; athletes train. Now, it's July and the mundaneness of being an athlete when you are not competing is taking its toll. Mentally, you're cracking. Physically, completely unmotivated. You ask yourself, "What the heck am I doing with my life?"

But wait! There is a light at the end of the tunnel! Something that could be a doorway to success, or a feeling of redemption for the year. It's the world championships in October. You spend four months preparing for what could be the most important two weeks of racing in your life. They could determine your future. You shuffle your life around. Train harder than you ever have before. You get focused, buy your flights to Europe and do everything in your power to be ready.

You land in Europe, ready to compete. You take a pre-race COVID test.

You test POSITIVE.

After an entire year of mental and emotional ups and downs, all your focus, all you energy, all your ability, get canceled. Again.

On Mission
Posted October 22, 2020

This past Sunday, we focused on the mission of the church.  Our marching orders come from the words of Jesus in the Great Commission:

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you, and lo, I am with you always, even to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)

Spiritually, as we go and grow, we are called to make disciples.  “Baptizing” assumes we will share our faith with the lost.  “Teaching” directs us to share our lives of faith with believers.

Knowing what our mission is moves us to action. As pastor of White Bluff Chapel, I would like to encourage each of us to do three things, as together, we live out our faith.

1. Gather weekly in Worship
Covid has made gathering together a challenge.  We have spent the past several weeks worshipping in what we call “Chapel on the Lawn” and “Chapel on the Web.”  Hopefully, we will soon be back to “Chapel in the Chapel!” No matter how, when, or where, we should embrace the privilege to Worship. 

2. Connect with at least one WBC small group
Small groups - whether we choose a Care Group, Bible Study, Sunday School, or Prayer Group - can be powerful opportunities to encourage one another as we grow in faith together.

3. Participate in at least one hands-on ministry
White Bluff Chapel is involved in a myriad of ministries – locally, nationally, and internationally.  More of these will be highlighted on our website in the coming weeks.

The mission of the church is clear.  In our corner of the world, let us be willing to Glorify God while ministering to the White Bluff community and beyond!
