About the Ministry:
Ministry committee includes: Chairperson; Patty Gibson, Deb Ayers, Patty Dogan, Connie Pannell and Ruth Vernon.
The ministry began its planning in 2006 after being inspired when a group of friends enjoyed the afternoon visiting a local tea shop. It was such an encouraging time together that the now formed committee felt lead to begin this ministry and offer it to the ladies in the church as well as friends and community. Our Tea Times are quarterly and on Saturday afternoons from 2-3:30 pm. The program includes a spiritual speaker, tea trivia, fellowship, food, and music.
Over the last several years, we’ve had theme teas such as: “Southern Belle“, “Harvest Pumpkin & Spice“, “Love Thy Neighbor“, “Enchanted Garden“, “Grandma’s Heirloom”, “Winter Wonderland“, “Mother & Daughter Banquet“, ”Hawaiian Luau”, “Country Christmas”, “Purses, Polka-Dots, Ribbons & Bows”, “Breakfast at Tiffanys”, “Celtic”, “Books, Tea & Thee”, “Country Fair”, “Healthy Heart” , “Celebrating Life”, “Paris Tea”, “Lavender & Lace” & “Buttons, Baskets & Blessings”, and “Precious Memories”. Each of these teas were unique as their names; encouraging devotions, special & professional speakers, delicious food and warm conversations. Our desire is for every lady to leave feeling blessed by the message, encouraged and refreshed mentally and spiritually.
“Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.”
