Thanks to the WBC Ministry Opportunity sheets, there were SEVEN new people who joined Critters and Knit/Crochet. There was also a lot of interest at our Mission Sunday. The "Halloween" cats are finished and it is time to start working on "Christmas" puppies for the Food Bank and Samaritan's Purse.
Our friend Beth Woolsey has been busy making "aprons" for our Whitney nursing home residents.
Mom 2 Mom
We are excited to introduce a new group to White Bluff Chapel. Mom 2 Mom is a group comprised of new moms and their children from the Whitney area. They meet in the Children’s room on Wednesday evenings at 6:00. This is a time for getting to know one another, fellowship, and play time for the children.
Mother’s Day Luncheon
Almost 80 ladies attended the Mother’s Day Luncheon, Saturday. The Hospitality Committee, led by Mary Parish, prepared a large variety of salads: tuna, chicken, pasta, pea, tossed, potato, and fruit. Homemade desserts were also available to devour.
A fashion show starring: Lynn Louthan, Joyce Triplett, Madeleine Lively, Jan Camp, Janet Gummelt, and Gail Warren entertained the ladies. The fashion show’s master of ceremony was Teresa Wyatt, owner of Daughter’s Dream Boutique.
Each lady was gifted a coin purse with candy and rose petal soap.
Wednesday Morning Bible Study Luncheon
The Wednesday Women's Bible Study just wrapped up their fall study, "Twelve Women of the Bible," this past week with a Christmas celebration at Karen Paxton's beautiful home. We will be starting up a new study with David Jeremiah called, "Christ Above All (study guide)," on Jan. 11, 2023 at 10:00. Anyone is welcome!
Ladies Bible Study Luncheon
Our Ladies Bible Study who met weekly during the school year, gathered on Friday, June 25th for an end of year luncheon at Pat Griffin’s Ranch. Pat led us in a review of our Max Lucado study, “Experiencing the Heart of Jesus”. She encouraged everyone to continue the study through the summer. Plans for the fall include a second Ladies Bible study on Tuesday afternoon in addition to the Friday morning Bible study.
Critters at the Chapel
Since the fall of 2001, small handmade stuffed pillows called "Critters" have been provided to several local hospitals and clinics. This ministry was started with Sandy Cannon at the helm, making stuffed animals for children passing through the emergency rooms of hospitals in Hillsboro and Whitney. Providing Critters has expanded to all children who need a special smile or just a little comforting in our area hospitals.
Are you a “Critter Lady?” If not, you are invited to join the group. You don’t need to know anything about sewing, nor do you need any special talent. Just come for the fun and they’ll show you how to “stuff.” The ladies meet from 10 am until noon on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month in the Maurice Martin Fellowship Hall of the White Bluff Chapel. If you would like to be involved but cannot attend the meetings, you can still contribute to the Critter efforts by sewing and/or stuffing at home. There is also a group of Knit and Crochet Ladies who make special creations for senior adults who need caps and afghans.
Currently, Critters are provided to Whitney Family Medicine Clinic, Whitney Health-Now Urgent Care, Hill County Regional ER, CPR in Hillsboro, EMT and Police Departments in Whitney, Goodall-Wicher Clinic in Clifton and Mission Hillsboro Medical clinic. Critters are also made for Shoeboxes at First Baptist Church and the Whitney Food Pantry at Christmastime.
Caring Meals Ministry
Every Tuesday evening, Mary Parish makes meals for our Caring Meals ministry. Anyone can sign up for a meal and make a donation as they pick up their meal at our “drive-thru”. This service is designed to help those during Covid-19 that needed a meal brought to them at least once a week. It has become so popular with others who want to make a donation and have a great meal, that we serve around 40 people each week.
Ladies Bible Study
The ladies in our community have several options for Bible Study at White Bluff Chapel. “Experiencing the Heart of Jesus,” by Max Lucado, is taught on Wednesday via Zoom and on Fridays for those who prefer to meet in person. This allows not only a choice of meeting in person or on Zoom, but also the opportunity to attend either day of each week for the same lesson.
Bible Study Fellowship meets at our chapel each Thursday morning at 10:00. Any women interested in studying Matthew in BSF starting September 16th should email Amy at email@example.com for more information.
