Church Tea:

July has traditionally been the month of our Annual Church Tea. We are forced to move the celebration to the third Sunday in August (8/16/2020). We will combine the Church Tea and Family and Friends Day. The tea will be held outside on the church grounds. Thanks to a very kind member a tent has been donated for the occasion.


We are in need of the following to make Church Tea a success:


  • 7  volunteers to set up tent on August 15 @ 9am

  • Team leaders for each of the birthday quarters

  • Event coordinator for the tea


Please remember we cannot serve food of any kind. The coordinator and team leaders will suggest creative items to give away. The Tea is our most important of the summer. We have to strive for overwhelming success.
