Spring Tea - May 18, 2016 6 pm

Our Ladies' Spring Tea was Wednesday, May 18, 2016 at 6 p.m. We had two speakers (Bonnie Bridges and Mary Hunt) who told us about Bessie's House.  Bessie's House is a ministry that provides nutrition, clothing, grooming, referral services, and mentoring in an environment of spiritual development and friendship to persons experiencing spiritual, economic and social poverty across the city of Kansas City.

Women's Fellowship presented a financial gift and sent them home with sandwiches to share at Bessie's House. We are now gathering other items to donate (we have a list at church of things they can use).  We received this thank you note from Mary Hunt.
Each guest received a lovely hand-crocheted dishcloth made by Lowana K.

The room was beautifully decorated by Helen, Sonya, Jean and Sharon K.

We enjoyed a delicious meal and inspiring presentation about Bessie's House

The little lady on the right was the youngest guest of the evening!
