Gathered by Christ to be and make Disciples

Ladies Tea

Members of the Fellowship Committee transformed the Fellowship Hall into a tearoom, complete with fancy teacups, teapots, and table decorations for a Ladies Tea that was open to women in the congregation and their guests.

The event, which was held in April, began with the story of Anna Maria Russell, Duchess of Bedford, creating the British Afternoon Tea. Storyteller Joan Hollinger then offered an inspirational devotional before teatime and the meal, which included the traditional scones and lemon curd.

Musicians Mimi Bippus and Maria Riggi played background music as everyone arrived and they continued to entertain the group as guests were served. After dessert, Maria played a solo on her violin and the musically talented Susan Null sang a hymn.
