The recent women’s ministry Afternoon Tea was beyond successful, featuring a sweet message from our very own Mary Ann Thurmond to go right along with the treats on each table. Mary Ann shared about the magnificent love that Jesus offers to all of us. She even used beautiful tea cups from her collection to illustrate her points – a perfect addition to the event.
The tea was an excellent blend of women, young & old. What a delight to see several generations of moms, daughters and granddaughters enjoying an afternoon together. There was an abundance of laughter and smiles making the room abuzz with energy. From hats and pearls to flip-flops and jeans, this was a wonderful time for the women of our church to be together. >>Watch the slideshow for pictures and view comments below!
Here’s what a few of our ladies are saying about this special day:
“Honestly, that was one of the best events hosted at our church ever, and we’ve had many great ones! It was well planned with beautiful, yummy food, and everyone enjoyed it! A wonderful time was had by all.”
“The tea was absolutely lovely. Everyone seemed to have such a good time it could not have been any nicer. I could tell that it took a lot of work, but it was so worth it. Did you see all the happy faces and all the ladies that were talking?”
“I appreciate feeling a part of & helping. I suppose my gift is serving & care giving. I really enjoyed the tea.”
“The tea was just delightful and a treat for everyone. Thank you for the inspiration and hard work to make it all possible.”
“Just can’t say enough thanks for all the work you and your team did in putting together the tea! It was absolutely one of the most wonderful events our church has had. Thank you for the privilege of being a part of it. God is good!”
