Men's Ministry Builds Swing Set for a Family
The White Bluff Chapel Men’s Ministry finished 2020 on a high note.
The opportunity to be Santa’s Helpers was seized when a need became evident. A White Bluff resident purchased a large cedar swing set for their children. It was delivered but not assembled. The “simple” job ended up taking almost 8 hours for 4 men. The family is thrilled with their new backyard play station.
What a great way to serve the Lord by making our neighbor’s load lighter.
The mom’s response was: “I cannot say THANK YOU enough, to the Men's Ministry at the White Bluff Chapel, for building a playset today for 2 happy kiddos! It was a great surprise.”
Annual Feeding of the Whitney Wildcats Football Team
As in years past, the Men’s Ministry had the opportunity and privilege to serve a pre-game meal to the Whitney Wildcats. The 2020 season was a rebuilding year and the win column was a little below what we’ve enjoyed for the past few years. However, it was evident that these young men enjoy each other’s company and, based on their appetite, they will all be bigger football players next year.
Larry Turner shared words of wisdom about “what a friend we have in Jesus.” (Someone should write a song). Although he didn’t get any Amens some heads were nodding in agreement. Hopefully, this community service opportunity will always be a part of the football experience.
Men's Ministry Builds Ramp for Hillsboro Couple
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.
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.
Men's Ministry of Hill County Team Completes 103rd Ramp
The Hill County team completed their 103rd Ramp in Peoria on August 19th for an 89-year old female who has had multiple medical issues and was unable to leave her home due to restricted mobility and four steps to her porch. Ten volunteers from White Bluff Chapel’s Men's Ministry spent four hours building a 39' ramp for her. Of the $885 total cost, $600 was funded by the Heart of Texas Area Agency on Aging, with the balance coming from The Texas Ramp Project grants.
The men take great pride in providing these ramps for those in need, working as a labor of love for God and their neighbors. The team’s motto is “Lord, make us a blessing to someone today.” Ron Williams is the leader of the team and uses his skills to survey the site and make the necessary design for a proper ramp based on the surroundings.
