ission  Peace within Chaos: Thoughts about
Noise and Rest
 oment  Posted October 4, 2018

Brian Firle's latest report from Athletes in Action is deeply thought-provoking as he shows that in the chaos of today's world one can still find rest amid the noise.

Brian works through Athletes in Action to spread the word of God to members of the Pro-Cycling arena.  White Bluff Chapel has been providing support for Brian for the past two and a half years. The growth and reach he has achieved have been chronicled in the reports he sends out regularly. For more information about Brian's ministry, contact Bill Burris.  Bill is the Chapel's liaison with Brian.

 oment  Posted October 4, 2018

Wee Can Know is a children's ministry working in the ninth ward of New Orleans.  They work with children who are dealing with a lot of difficulties in their homes.  Drug and alcohol problems affect their parents and their siblings.

Phil and Debbie Smith reach out to these children and have a great record of helping them find Christ and stay on that path.  They also have success in helping the parents find a way to a better life by knowing Christ.

This group’s September thank-you tells all about the issues mentioned above.  Take a moment to read their most recent Thank You Newsletter for the support they receive.  Those wanting to know more about the Wee Can Know ministry can contact Bill Burris, Chapel liaison for them.

What We've Done


Follow-Up to Former "Stop the Bleed" Article
Posted October 4, 2018

by Rick Faught & Paul Jacobus

Below is a report written by Paul Jacobus. Paul has been a big help to the Men’s Ministry for a couple of years on many projects. This was the first event for which he planned and administered the entire event. Everything having to do with the students is the result of Paul’s efforts. It’s great when new people step up to leadership positions.

“Stop the Bleed” was a success.  The event was held in Fellowship Hall at White Bluff Chapel.  We had a great turnout including student volunteers from Whitney High School Student Council, led by Noelia Delgado.  Not only did they learn some great skills in wound care, most of them learned how to cook bacon, sausage and pancakes!  God was definitely watching over the kitchen that morning.  


Kim McFarland did a presentation on the latest in wound packing, tourniquets, and the use of pressure to stop bleeding.  She also told those attending that the average time it takes for a person to bleed out is 3-5 minutes. Our White Bluff first responders can be at most houses in White Bluff in 3-5 minutes and that is a lot better than most.   

With that information, she said that it is important to have instant responders available. Who is an instant responder?  An instant responder is anyone who takes the time to learn a few basic lifesaving skills like the ones that Kim taught. During the hands-on time, Kim really encouraged everyone to have a very basic kit available that includes a tourniquet for “just in case.” Up-to-date skills are always important to have, as well. Texas Harris Hospital donated two kits to the Chapel and new leads for the defibrillator.  

All-in-all it was a good day with friends old and new.  The young folks who showed up have been helping here at White Bluff since early summer of this year. They have hauled leaves and branches from properties. They have helped build wheelchair ramps. And now they have helped in the kitchen and learned a bit more about basic first aid.  

If you have never taken the time to help out this age-group of students, you have missed a lot of fun and a very rewarding experience. Thank you to all who came to “Stop the Bleed.”  A special thank-you goes to Kim McFarland, Texas Health, CareFlite, as well as to Whitney High School’s Student Council for their parts in presenting the program. And many thanks to the Men’s Ministry for sponsoring this event.  



Griffin BBQ Another Big Hit
Posted October 4, 2018

On Saturday, September 22, a large group of Chapel members and guests met once again at the Griffin bi-annual BBQ. This has become an event that everyone looks forward to attending. Pat and Jim Griffin have a great formula for success. They have the meats done to perfection by Danny Bodeker and ask the great cooks from White Bluff Chapel to bring sides and desserts. Recently they brought entertainment to the party with members of the White Bluff Chapel Ensemble.







Over-the-Hill Care Group Holds Annual Tailgate Party
Posted October 4, 2018

On Saturday, September 22, twenty-nine members of the Over-the-Hill Care Group met in the Lone Star Room for its annual tailgate party to kick off the football season.  A variety of team apparel was displayed by the members.  Ursula Stone and Loraine Bretthauer hosted the party with help from their husbands.  A special thank-you goes out to Ron Stone for returning the next morning to make sure the room was clean.



The group has been so appreciative of the remodeling of the Lone Star room that their leader, Marcie Burris, invited Leonard and Mary-Tullie Critcher to the event to let them feel the group’s appreciation.

As usual, there was a wide variety of tasty morsels to be eaten. The theme was football fare of hot dogs, hamburgers, baked beans and potato salad, accompanied by traditional appetizers and desserts.  Ron Stone offered the blessing and the line was quick to form.

After the meal, the Critchers delivered a few remarks to the group. Leonard and Mary-Tullie gave the group an overview of the plans that will be put into place and a basic timing of when each event will begin. It was a great time for sharing information and discussion with the group.

The next gathering of the Care group will be the annual Christmas white elephant exchange on December 8 at the Lone Star room.  Bob and Cathy Valenta will be hosting the evening.
