ission  Appreciation for Financial Aid
 oment  Posted August 25, 2016

Andre Ribeiro

The Chapel has once again received thank you notes from two scholarship recipients showing their appreciation for the Chapel's financial aid.  The mentoring part of the award has been a very successful addition to the financial aid they receive.

2014 recipient Adriana Arredono, mentored by Becky Watkins and 2016 recipient Andre Ribeiro, mentored by David and Ava Woods have sent thank you notes expressing their appreciation for their financial aid support from the Chapel.

Adriana Arredono

The Chapel receives regular input from students that are awarded the financial aid.   It's a blessing to know how that support is helping someone from the Lake Whitney area achieve their goals for higher education.

The Education Mission Committee Chair is Peggy Mitchell and Financial Aid sub-committee Chair is David Briggs.  If you want to know more about this mission or become more involved as a mentor you can email David.

What's Happening

Griffin's Are Hosting Another Barbeque Party
Posted August 25, 2016

Once again Jim and Pat Griffin are hosting a BBQ gathering at their Ranch.  As you can see by the pictures of the last party, people have a wonderful time with plenty of great food.  Approximately 100 people attended the last BBQ in October of 2014.  If you've not been before or are new to the Chapel it's an event you don't want to miss. 

You are all invited to the Griffin’s Ranch for a church-wide BBQ on Saturday, September 17.  The gate opens at 5 pm.  The Griffin’s have hosted the Chapel at least every other year for over 10 years.  They provide the BBQ and drinks.  Everyone is asked to bring a side dish of beans, vegetables, salad or dessert to feed 10-12 people.  Sign up will be available in the Fellowship Hall starting August 28.

Come early and bring a fishing rod if you’d like to try your luck at one of two ponds.  Gator rides will be provided for those who would like to see some of Jim’s “girls” (cows).  It is a good time for fellowship and make new friends. Entertainment will be provided by our own Chris and Charlie Whisenand.  As usual parking will be tight so please carpool, if possible.  A few handicapped spots will be reserved near the house. 

The J-G Ranch is easy to find.  Just turn left out of White Bluff and go approximately 5 miles on Hwy 933.  Watch on your left for a rock entrance with J-G above.  Go down Pat Griffin Freeway, cross the pond and watch for parking signs.

Everyone is welcome so sign-up and plan to come on out.

On the Road Again

Spending Time in Wine Country
Posted August 25, 2016

by Bill Burris

Marcie and I have enjoyed traveling to a variety of places in our lives together. One location we've been able to visit several times is the California wine country in Napa/Sonoma.

Prior to our first Napa trip I was able to take Marcie on her first visit to California. We spent a couple of days in San Francisco near Fisherman's Wharf. On our first night we were having dinner on Pier 39 near an open window. Marcie kept hearing a noise and asked why all those dogs were barking. I grinned and told her I take her to see the dogs after we finished our meal. She was amazed to find out her dogs were sea lions. She fell in love with them and all their actions on the floating docks.

I asked Marcie what the four most interesting sights she had seen in our four trips to wine country. Her first choice was Castillo di Amorosa, seeing the Pacific Ocean, a carriage ride through the vineyards on our 10th anniversary, and she learned she couldn't handle the ride on the coast highway.

On our first trip for wine tastings, I soon realized that we needed to slow down if I was going to find my way back to our lodging. One of the wineries we visited suggested we consider dinner at the restaurant next door. The restaurant would not charge a corking fee with their wine and they also recommended asking for Walter as our waiter. We were very pleased with the wine, meal and the whole dining experience with Walter.

On our third trip we stayed in Sonoma at the Applewood Inn. That trip gave Marcie the opportunity to see the Pacific Ocean for the first time and we dined where the Russian river meets the Pacific Ocean. God gave us a wonderful sunset as we enjoyed another great meal. We've learned to look at things through different eyes to see what God has made for us to enjoy.

During our four trips to the wine country we knew that we would need to return and enjoy more of what God has created.
