"Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it."
If you are new at White Bluff Chapel check in your child at the "check-in station" in the new Children’s Wing, where our staff or volunteers will help you. As you check-in, you will receive a name tag for your child that can list any special needs or allergies for our volunteers to be aware of.
The goal of the Children’s Ministry at White Bluff Chapel is to engage our children in God’s word through stories, music, and fun activities. One way we do that is through Kid Zone. Kid Zone meets each Sunday from 9:00-10:00 and includes classes for Nursery, Toddlers & Preschool, Kindergarten – 2nd Grade, and 3rd Grade – 5th Grade. There is also "Children's Church" at 10:30 for Nursery – Preschool. For questions email: email@example.com
Fall Festival 2022
What a wonderful idea!! We had booths, hot dogs, plenty of candy, prizes and lots of volunteers from our chapel to help with our first annual Fall Festival. Over 300 came to enjoy the games and festivities. A huge thank you to our many volunteers including our project directors, Gwen Williams and Cathy Maze, for helping us coordinate and celebrate.
Kid Zone Kick Off
The Children’s Ministry of White Bluff Chapel held a fun filled morning of activities for the kick off of “Kid Zone”. We were thrilled to have all enjoy bounce houses, snow cones, face painting and games on a beautiful Saturday morning. Each Sunday morning from 9:00a.m. – 10:00a.m., we will host “Kid Zone” for children birth – 5th grade which will include activities, songs and stories for the children.
The Children’s Ministry at White Bluff Chapel hosted a Saturday Mission Day for kids. The day started with music and devotion by Pastor Randy Marshall. Then students were divided into groups and had projects that could be shared with others to tell the Gospel Message about Christ. “Critters” were made, Bible stories told, outside playtime, and other activities that can be shared with others made for a wonderful day for all.
Community Easter Event 2021
Families joined a fun-filled Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday. Our Children's ministry provided face painting, a bubble station and egg dying stations for all to enjoy. With almost forty children, plus their parents and grandparents present, Pastor Randy told the Easter story to the children before the big hunt.
Thanks for sharing your children with us! Be on the lookout for our next event in August!
White Bluff VBS Wins with
"Back to the Basics" Approach
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.
Chapel Members Spread and
Receive Halloween Cheer
Saturday, October 28th proved to be another beautiful night in Whitney. I say that in more ways than one. Although the cool night air and beautiful sunset were outstanding, the atmosphere and fun evening in downtown were just as beautiful.
The Church of Christ started the Trunk or Treat festivities at 4:00 with games, bouncy houses, performing artists, and lots of candy. The crowds then moved on over to downtown Whitney where the Whitney Police, Fire Department, and many area organizations had set up tables and displays for the trunk or treaters.
Free hamburgers were given away by the city and hundreds of parents and children were dressed in costumes as they lined the streets to get goodies from the providers. White Bluff Chapel partnered with other area churches and the Lake Whitney Ministerial Alliance to pass out Christian/faith based bracelets, pencils, and tons of candy.
Our own Debbie Bradley led the way as she told children over and over how much Jesus loved them. A highlight of the evening was when one of her students that she teaches in the public school system ran up and hugged her as he and his family came by the display.
Becky Watkins and Paul Jacobson were on hand to help hand out candy and Paul saved the day with coffee toward the end of the evening. We all needed a little "warming up" on a cool evening.
It was such a fun evening to be out in the community and especially to partner with many other community churches. It was definitely a "treat" for us.
