Black History Month

In honor of Black History Month, each week we are going to feature a different black christian figure in history.

William Sheppard

In 1889, William Sheppard set sail to the Congo, becoming one of the first African-American overseas missionaries. As a boy he had taught himself to read and write, and applied the same gifts to learning the local Kuna language. King Luckenga was so impressed, that he allowed Sheppard to go deeper into the country than any foreigners had been allowed before, preaching the Gospel at each stop. In 1910, despite fierce racial segregation, he returned to the United States and ministered faithfully in Kentucky.

Wedding Shower

Join us in the Commons on Sunday, February 26 from 1:00-2:30PM for a wedding shower honoring Travis Buford and Jenna Lewis. Travis is the son of Mike and Susie Buford. The couple is registered on The Knot. Click the button below for the registry link.

Marriage Advice

Ok, ya'll, Valentine's Day is this month! If obligatory holidays make you grumpy or stress you out, we can relate. But look, don’t let your stress, cynicism, or pride keep you from capitalizing on this opportunity to show love to your spouse. You have two weeks until the big day. That is plenty of time to plan something special and unexpected. Think about what would really bless your spouse and go the extra mile to do it.
Here are some ideas…


•Leave a love note in an unexpected place
•Give your spouse some cash or a gift card and tell them to go spend it while you watch the kids
•Send her flowers at work
•Surprise your spouse with a weekend getaway
•Surprise your spouse with tickets to a concert or sporting event
•Take your spouse on a marriage retreat
•Take a walk and hold hands
•Get a couples massage together
•Give the gift of quality time—Take your spouse out, leave your phones in the car, and ask your spouse how they are doing, then really listen
•Take the kids and give your spouse some alone time
•Organize the storage room or attic and do a surprise reveal with blindfold
•Clean the fireplace, open the flu, and make a fire
•Buy your spouse’s favorite snacks and stay up late playing cards or board games

May God bless your efforts to intentionally love your spouse this Valentines Day.

HST Pie Auction

Harding School of Theology is hosting a pie auction and chili supper on February 11, 2023 at 6pm. Tickets are available at the door for $10. Children under 12 eat for free. The event will be held in the Fellowship Hall at White Station Church of Christ. Contact Susie Buford with any questions at sbuford@hst.edu

Serve With Us

Serving through church gives us a way to belong and meet new people. We’ve got many openings available to fit your gifts and passions, whether it might be serving the Children's Ministry, Youth Ministry, singing on the Praise Team, serving in our Special Needs Ministry, Media Team, and many others.

Kingdom Kids

Adult volunteers needed for both service times.

Kingdom Kids is our children’s worship service for our children in our 3-year-old class-kindergarten. We meet together in the Great Hall for singing, puppet shows, Bible stores, coloring activities, and snacks.

There is absolutely no preparation involved for our volunteers; we just need some grown-ups to love on our little ones and join in the fun.

We need two adults for each service to work alongside “Miss” Amy for first service and “Miss” Kari for the second service.

This is a once-a-month commitment from January-May. Click the button below to sign-up as a volunteer.

If you have any questions, please contact Amy Murphy.

Investment Advice

If you want an investment that will pay dividends forever, then invest in the mission and vision of the church. Redirect your dollars and time into what God is doing. Richland Hills preacher Rick Atchley says, "Stuff doesn't last, but people do, and what we do for for people does." Don't wear yourself out for stuff that will end up in a landfill. Don't stress about vehicles that are doomed to the junkyard. Life is more than clothes, cars, and homes. Instead, invest in spreading the gospel, serving the poor, teaching teens and children about Jesus, building up the next generation, helping families foster and adopt, supporting missionaries, and serving people with special needs. Investing in those things will make a difference both now and for eternity. How do you do that? It's simple. Give to the weekly contribution and spend some time serving in a ministry.

Cats can't taste anything that's sweet. That's probably why they can't get enough of their favorite salty snack.
