Sandy Creek Summer Bible Camp Approaching
Posted April 18, 2019

The Chapel, through the Local Mission committee led by Vicki Thompson, provides a very positive support for the children in our community.  Supporting the families with the cost of transporting their children to the camp has given the families a real eye opening to the benefits of sending the children to the camp.  For more information or to get involved, email Bob Buckner, the Chapel liaison for this mission, or call him at 254-694-8527 or 214-957-0310.

We at White Bluff Chapel want to continue to add new campers to our list of attendees, so please think of children you know from this area who would benefit from this wonderful Christian camp experience for the upcoming summer. They may be children you are mentoring, their siblings, or children of families you know of through the Food Bank or other organizations in the community. There is no cost to the children or to their families, except for a small amount of spending money. Financial assistance for the transportation is provided, as well.

This year's dates for Sandy Creek are as follows:

Age Group      Dates
8-12                 June 16-22
12-14               June 23-29
14-17               June 30-July 6
15-18               July 21-27

Isaiah's Place To Host Summer Deaf Camp
Posted April 18, 2019

Isaiah's Place is hosting a Summer Deaf Camp for those from grades 6-12 on June 20-23.  Included in their activities will be the celebration of National Deaf Day on June 20.

Following their recent three-day Spring Youth Camp, the air conditioning system crashed in the Isaiah's Place bunk house.  Diane reached out to the community for assistance with the cost of replacing the system.  As of April 5, funding had reached a sum of $2,465.00.  She would appreciate any additional funds to help them bring the bunkhouse back its cooling system.

Thank you for reading this IP quick update. Have a great Easter!

Host Families Sought for German Student Exchange:
Only 2 Weeks in April!
Posted April 4, 2019

Every two years WISD hosts German exchange students from the Free Christian School of Frankfurt and their teacher, a former Whitney graduate, Jim Atwell.  This is a short two-week exchange, where the German students will attend Whitney High School classes and live with host families in our district.

The dates for this year's exchange are April 19th – May 3rd.  It is not required that host families have a high school age student.  If families live along the Whitney bus routes, the German students can ride the school buses for transportation.  Host families would be responsible for supplying three meals a day (for 12 days), possible transportation and, of course, a place to sleep.

If you are interested in being a host family, please email/call Lisa Mays at lisa.mays@whitneyisd.org or 254-266-1118 (text or call), or 254-694-3457 (school).

Moving Forward After a Loss
Posted March 14, 2019

On Tuesday, March 5, our Lord chose to bring Terry Cosby home.  For more than ten years, Cos has been the Chapel family's Sheppard, Leader, Mentor, Pastor and Friend.  During this difficult time Cos would be the first to ask the Chapel Family to pray for council, guidance and direction for the Trustees, for continued growth and focus on missions, and to mentor and walk with Dr. James Pool and Dylan Price. 

Our hearts are saddened by Terry's death, but our love for White Bluff Chapel and each other will sustain us.  With God's grace and guidance, we are committed to leading White Bluff Chapel during these difficult times.

A Search Committee was formed last year to identify a qualified Interim Pastor to serve during Terry's medical leave.  Based on the recommendation of this committee, the Board has named Dr. James E. Pool as our Interim Pastor effective March 1st.  As his résumé indicates, James has over 35 years of service as a senior pastor and religious leader.  James was a guest speaker here in November and he conducted our worship service on March 10.  In general, James will share the duties with Dylan for leadership of the Chapel - including preaching, teaching, pastoral care, visitation, and special services. 

Pastor Terry's Last Sermon
Posted March 14, 2019

Some Chapel members have asked for it and some have stated that they would like to hear it again. Perhaps some may have been out of town that day. It was decided to keep Pastor Terry's last sermon accessible in the sermon section of the website, in the left sidebar of the home page. It will remain there for at least two months.
