What better time for our teatime ministry to focus on KINDNESS. Proverbs 3:3 says “Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart”. We believe there is a great need for God’s children to put this simple little focus at the forefront of our lives.
We are pleased to have Uneita Matthews, events coordinator from the Rescue Mission who will share a message and song. Contributions to the Rescue Mission can be made at the teatime as envelopes will be available.
The menu will be Mini Quiche, Turkey Heart Shaped Savories, Watermelon Wedges, Maple Scones & Valentine Tea. Don’t forget your teacup. Tickets are $8 for Ladies and $5 for girls under the age of 12. Please note due to the increase of food and operational expenses the adults tickets have been increased. Deadline to purchase a ticket for the tea is April 9th.
To provide ladies in the church and community a tea time while incorporating the following aspects that are important to women; Fellowship, Encouragement, Emotional Support & Sponsorship, Prayer Time, Bible Study, Spiritual Development, Health & Well Being, Mentoring and Life Skills.
About the Ministry:
Ministry committee includes: Chairperson; Patty Gibson, Deb Ayers, Patty Dogan, and Connie Pannell.
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 special 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”, “Precious Memories”, Mystery Tea” , “When Life Gives You Lemons” and “Christmas Traditions of Time Past”. 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.” Proverbs 31:28
