We are so excited about a 2018 spring tea!  SO ladies, mark your calendar for April 28th from 2:00 – 3:30 PM for a DOWNTON ABBEY Tea!   For those who don’t remember or never saw this series that aired on PBS from 2011-2015;  it was a delightful movie that you stopped everything to watch it on Sunday evenings for an hour.   Everyone LOVED it!   Our plans are underway, so please check back later to see all the upcoming details.

Ministry’s Vision:

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.
