Chaplaincy

Nursing Home Church Services

Our Chaplain, Ron Roberts, has tediously worked with our area pastors to provide a church service each Sunday at our local nursing home. Every Sunday afternoon at 2:00, you will find a minister from one of our area churches speaking and singing with our friends at Town Hall Estates.

Community Worship Services

There are community worship services numerous times during the year. Every month with a fifth Sunday, we meet for a time of music and fellowship at various churches. The community also enjoys a Thanksgiving and a Christmas program which is interdenominational. During our Christmas program, we often enjoy our Whitney High School choir and band students as well as area church choirs.

Easter Egg Hunt

Children's Programs

Easter egg hunts and Trunk or Treat activities round out the outreach to our community as our area pastors and ministers spread the good news of Jesus Christ.

1/17/20 Lake Whitney Ministerial Alliance to Host MLK Day of Service

On Monday, January 20, the Lake Whitney Ministerial Alliance will host a community day of service in observance of Martin Luther King Day, culminating in a community worship service and celebration at 5:30 PM, January 20, 2020, at Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church, 224 S. Pecos St., Whitney, Texas, Rev. Shane Metcalf presiding.

The MLK Day of Service inspires hundreds of thousands of Americans to come together to serve their community. Citizens in all 50 states deliver meals, refurbish schools and community centers, and collect food and clothing. Volunteers also recruit mentors, support job-seekers, build homes and provide other services for veterans and military families, and help citizens improve their financial literacy skills.

There is no registration or sign-up. Simply pick up litter along a roadside, pay a visit to a local nursing home, volunteer at your local church or deliver Meals on Wheels. Whatever you choose, be the change that you want to see in the world. And if you cannot volunteer on January 20, pick some other day and make this a "a day on, not a day off." Either way join in worship and celebration with others who care about our community at 5:30 PM at Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church, one of the first African-American Baptist congregations in Hill County,.

"Everyone can be great because everybody can serve." - Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
