Camp Starveyor VBS 2018 Mission Work
Posted May 24, 2018

This year's mission: Searching the Visible and Discovering the Invisible

VBS Scripture:
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For everything was created by Him, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities all things have been created through Him and for Him. Colossians 1:15-16

A Volunteer is in place for the Local Mission but we still need a Prayer Mission Leader.  This volunteer will be responsible for assembling the list mentioned in the full description document.  50% of this volunteer position will be finished before VBS begins.  Some information will be gathered on Monday to complete the final Prayer assignment lists to be handed out Tuesday and Wednesday.  You will not need to be in attendance at VBS to complete your assignment.

Fill out a Volunteer Form and/or contact Kae Keith directly.

Local Mission: White Bluff Volunteer Fire Department
For a full description, click Local Mission.
VBS Children will learn that the hands and feet of Christ are all around us.  Christian duty and civic duty go hand in hand.  God calls on his children to take care of each other as he cares for us.  Therefore, when our world or community has a need, we respond and support them with fundraisers, services and prayer.

Prayer Mission: Even Peace is Possible with God.
For a full description click Prayer Mission.
VBS children will be praying for the Peace found when there is a connection to God. We will start small and local and grow bolder each day. Ultimately affirming our knowledge that nothing is outside of God's control or beyond his grasp. Each VBS day the children will participate in group prayer and take home their prayer responsibility for that evening.


Men's Ministry Handling Limbs and Brush
Posted May 24, 2018

Back by popular demand, the Men's Ministry will again pick up limbs and brush on Saturday, June 2. The POA has arranged, since the burn pit is closed, to accept and mulch yard and tree trimmings brought to the maintenance facility. This offer is not limited to Chapel members. Any White Bluff resident is eligible.

We have extra manpower this time because volunteers from Whitney High School are earning community service credits and have agreed to work for food. This is a great opportunity to serve our neighbors and show the love that White Bluff Chapel is famous for.

Please RSVP as soon as possible for your spot on the team and also to be on the list of families we will serve.  Big thanks to all participants in advance.

Contact Rick Faught, Men's Ministry Chairman, at 817-913-0777.


What Is Happening at Camp Starveyor?
Posted May 10, 2018

As Galactic Starveyors, campers will search the skies and God's Word to uncover God's truth etched in His handiwork. They will discover that the God who created everything there is (the knowable and the unknowable, the visible and the invisible) wants a relationship with them! And from the very beginning, God had a plan to restore the relationship He knew we would break. God sent His Son, Jesus, to be our Savior and His Holy Spirit to be our Helper. From the very beginning, to the furthest reaches of space (and beyond!), nothing is outside God's control or beyond His grasp. God loves us and will never leave us.

Children 3-12 years old by June 1, 2018 are invited to attend.  For safety reasons, the 3-year-old class will be limited to 12 students.

VBS camp days will run June 25-29 this year. All students will attend a typical VBS program from 9 a.m. to noon, Monday through Thursday.  On Friday, June 29, each group will participate in our Farewell Rally, beginning the day at 10:00 and dismissing at 11:00.  Parents, grandparents and friends are encouraged to attend.

The 10, 11 and 12-year-old students can choose to participate in afternoon mission activities and field trips Monday through Thursday.  Lunch will be provided at the chapel.  Their VBS day will end at 3 p.m.

Register a child or Sign up to Volunteer. These two forms may be filled out and submitted ONLINE. As soon as you click on SUBMIT, you will receive a confirmation that your form has been received.
 
Please note that every child being registered MUST ALSO have a 2018 Permission Form filled out for this year before being admitted to VBS! (Last year's Permission Form will NOT suffice for this year!)


Register for VBS Now!
Posted May 10, 2018

2018's VBS promises to be another exciting time for both the children and volunteers. The week the camp will run this year is June 25-29. Please take the time to fill out the proper online registration form.

Children are enrolled as soon as the Register for VBS online form is completed and the Register for VBS button at the bottom of the form is clicked. A thank-you with a link to the Parental Permission and Release formpops up when the enrollment is complete. This form must be printed out and then filled in on the hard copy. It requires a parent signature and must be on file at the chapel before each child can participate in VBS.  A new version of the form is needed each year to insure that all information is current. 

The completed and signed Parental Permission and Release form must be submitted to the chapel by June 20. (It can be returned to the office by postal mail or scanned and attached to an email sent to Kbkeith14@gmail.com.  Please add VBS to the email subject line to prevent it looking like spam.) Early submission will prevent confusion and delays on the first day of VBS.

Volunteer Sign-up is also online. It should be submitted as soon as possible.

VBS T-Shirts

All Campers and Star Guides will be wearing the latest fashion in VBS t-shirts. Children will be provided 1 shirt. Additional shirts can be purchased for $6.00.

Volunteers are asked to wear either a VBS t-shirt (that they can purchase for $6.00) or a plain shirt that matches the 2018 color. Since the t-shirts are still in design mode, the color has not yet been chosen. Watch for the next update on May 24, 2018.  Shirts must be ordered in early June so sign up now to guarantee a good fit.

To pay for your t-shirt or to order extra t-shirts, contact: Tricia Shelton grammyfrog@windstream.net 254-694-9545  or 325-658-1343.


VBS in Need of New Volunteers
Posted May 10, 2018

Kae Keith is this year's director for VBS, slated to run June 25-29. Kae is soliciting new volunteers. She explains:

"This year many of our people who have "Always" helped with VBS are out.  Anniversaries, Family trips, illness, and Caroline actually MOVED!  I will miss her, and I will miss the others who can't be with us this year, but I am not afraid. God has asked me to be calm and simply believe He will provide.  I believe it!

Please pray and ask God if he wants you.  Are you meant to help this year? Does He have you in mind to pick up the slack so that our loyal, stalwart brothers and sisters can have a little time off? 

We need helpers, we need leaders, and we need everyone at White Bluff Chapel praying for a VBS Program that will reach out to our neighborhood and our community.

This summer we will be teaching our kids that nothing is outside God's control or beyond His grasp. So, VBS is in God's control and I know he is summoning his children to rally around and share His good news with the little ones. "

Please contact Kae Keith at 817-201-8853 to let her know you can be counted among the ones God is asking to help in 2018.  You should consult the Volunteer Job Preference Form first and then register by clicking on the Volunteer Sign-Up Form online.

This year our theme is Galactic Starveyors.

Discover the incredible mysteries of the final frontier - right from your own backyard. Grab your telescope and head to your clubhouse observatory where endless discoveries await! Your telescope becomes a portal through which you encounter amazing and wonderful things designed by a Creator who is even bigger than the vastness of His creation.

As Galactic Starveyors, kids will search the skies and God's Word to uncover God's truth etched in His handiwork. They will discover that the God who created everything there is- the knowable and the unknowable, the visible and the invisible- wants a relationship with them! And from the very beginning, God had a plan to restore the relationship He knew we would break. God sent His Son, Jesus, to be our Savior and His Holy Spirit to be our Helper. From the very beginning to the furthest reaches of space (and beyond), nothing is outside God's control or beyond His grasp. God loves us and will never leave us.
