Hello everyone, Missing the tea, with all your smiling faces and all the goodies. But not missing the dishes!

Coffee in 'da shed'!

In years gone past,
We have broken our fast,
Stopping for an afternoon Tea,
With Fine folks like yee
Celebrating and being excited,
To see our friends from First United.

What a great idea! Thank you to the UCW for making this possible.  It is wonderful to see the familiar and beautiful faces of my faith family, each in a safe place but yet together in heart and spirit. Next time it will be around our banquet tables in Trinity Hall. Until then stay safe and well.

Happy sipping everyone!

Thank God for tea time!

Enjoying the moment! Miss you all.

Hope you had a good tea party. Stay safe!

No picture, but enjoyed afternoon tea with Madge Seabright.  Made sure we stayed in our bubble. Enjoyed seeing all of you

Not the same as having tea with all of our church family, but it was lovely having a cup of tea with Nan, Pop and Aunt Elaine social distancing

Celebrating our tea with our double bubble. So nice to hug family once again. Thinking of our church family while having tea and anticipating when we can do it.

    Tea Time Blessing

    Virtual Spring Afternoon Tea

    So, mark you calendars, save the time!
    When you drink your tea, I will drink mine.
    And as for that plate of sweets you’ll be eating,
    Though distance may separate, in our minds we’ll be meeting.
    For it’s times like this when we are apart
    That we hold each other close to our heart.

    Now there’s no need to ask, “How can this be?”
    It’s about thinking of you as you think of me!
    Yes, afternoon tea will be different this year.
    But we know through our faith, we are really quite near.

    A cup of tea
    A prayer or two
    Special moments
    Shared with you

    Stay Safe!

      • We are all feeling the same way, Janice … it would be so wonderful to be together at the church. But everybody is enjoying the photos as they come in – the growing slideshow and the collage

      I wish I was the one taking your “snap” as that would mean we were all together for afternoon tea. Seeing all of these pictures fills my heart with joy! Hugs to all!

      There was nothing fancy on our table, not like at the church table. Oh how the money rolls in…..I just emptied the church drop box….see how much more will be there tomorrow. Thanks to all….
