The Youth Ministry at White Bluff Chapel includes all students from 6th-12th grade. The White Bluff Chapel Youth Fellowship Group meets during the school year on Sunday evenings in homes of our students. We have a Middle School Group (6th Grade – 8th Grade) and a High School Group (9th Grade – 12th Grade) that meet from 6:00 – 7:30. These weekly gatherings consist of a light meal, a devotion led by White Bluff Chapel volunteers, and time to connect with one another.
Another way for our students to connect is to attend the Youth Bible Study (6th Grade – 12th Grade) each Sunday from 9:30 – 10:30 in the Youth Room at White Bluff Chapel. Students are encouraged to then attend worship starting at 10:30. For questions email: email@example.com

Fun at the Baylor Volleyball Game
Thirty youth and adults attended the Baylor Volleyball game. The youth was able to get autographs from the players and to interact with them. “Marigold” was kind enough to pose for pictures as well. After the game, all attended a post game meal.
Pizza and Pickleball Games
The due to the chilly weather, the Pizza and Pickleball night turned into Pizza and Games! Twenty youth & sponsors showed up in the Fellowship Hall for dinner and camaraderie. After enjoying pizza, they watched football on the television; they played video games, dominos, Jenga, Connect Four and more.
Baptism at the Highlands Pool
On Sunday, October 8, Pastor Aaron had the opportunity to baptize Kegan Nadal at the Highlands Pool. Kegan is the third White Bluff Chapel student who attended Wild Week summer camp who has now been baptized.
A big “Thank You” goes out to everyone who supports our Chapel students.
Youth Fellowship Kickoff
On Sunday, September 10 the White Bluff Chapel Youth Group met at the Cascade Pool for a Pizza & Pool Party. Their parents met simultaneously at the Lonestar Room for an informational gathering. 30 students and 20 parents attended this event which served as the Fall Kickoff to Sunday evening Youth Fellowship Groups that meet in the homes of students each Sunday at 6PM.
Young Talented Musicians
Sunday during worship, we were treated to some special music. Claire Schneider played “Amazing Grace” on the piano, EJ Franklin played, “How Great Thou Art” on the Saxophone, Reed Schneider played “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” on the piano, and Luke Leverett played a “Gospel Medley “on the fiddle.
These young musicians also brightened the summer days at the Country Club Retirement Community. They played for the residents five times this summer.
Wild Week and College Day
What a summer it has been for the White Bluff Chapel Youth Ministry! A few highlights include Wild Week at Carolina Creek where 10 students and chaperones attended youth camp for the week. The amazing camp setting on Lake Livingston provided the perfect backdrop for the youth group to grow closer together and closer to God. Upon return from camp our students hosted athletes from Baylor for College Day. The Baylor students led in portions of the 10:30 service and then stayed for a pool party where they shared about their faith with WBC youth over lunch and games.
One of the most impressive aspects of the summer has been the opportunity to see how God has grown this ministry in only 10 short months. The WBC Youth Ministry was officially started in September 2022 and the spiritual and numerical growth has been truly amazing. May God continue to grow and bless this exciting ministry in the years to come.
Can with a Champ
Cheryl Thornton, award winning pickling and canning champion, invited the youth to come to her farm. The youth learned to make pickles, ate a great dinner and heard about life on the farm. After dinner, Dusty showed the kids some horse training tips. It was such a unique experience that the kids will remember for a long time.
Talented Youth Musicians Play at the CCRC
Residents of the Country Club Retirement Community enjoyed three of the youths from White Bluff Chapel. Claire and Reed Schneider as well as Luke Leverett took the opportunity to play the piano and the fiddle for the residents this past Monday. The students have plans to entertain at the CCRC five different Mondays this summer with their musical talent.
What a great way to kick off the summer! 14 youth in grades 6-12 met in the Fellowship Hall for a barbecue dinner, fellowship, and listened to two former student athletes from Baylor University, Jay and Hannah Sedwick. Before and afterwards, they challenged others to fun games, such as ladder ball, corn hole and ultimate frisbee!
On Saturday, they met in the morning for breakfast and devotion. Then it was time to hit the LAKE! They enjoyed riding on boats, tubing, knee boarding, and swimming!
Pizza and Pickle Ball
The Youth Fellowship Groups wrapped up their Sunday evening studies for the year. The Middle School and High School groups met together at the pickle ball courts. Almost thirty youth showed up for a fun evening of Pickle ball, and they were treated to some delicious Pizza from the new WB Market Marina. Good bye school year and hello summer!
The Summer Kickoff will be June 2-3.
Middle School Youth Fellowship Group
The middle school youth group met at Randy and Susie's house recently. The evening consisted of several great activities. The youth enjoyed the Bible study, fellowship, and of course, food! At the end of the evening they played ping pong.
All students in grades 5 - 8 are welcome to attend each Sunday at 6:00 p.m. for a time of food, fellowship and devotion.
Youth Bible Study
Todd Williams was the guest speaker at the weekly Youth Bible Study on March 5th. Each Sunday evening, we have a middle school and high school Bible Study for our students.
