Women's Christmas Tea featured a children's story and tea for 200

The Women’s Ministry Committee of Ebenezer Mennonite Church hosted their annual Christmas Tea on December 1. The evening was filled with delicious treats, many rounds of holiday-inspired flavors of tea, and enjoyable laughter and conversation among the nearly two hundred women who attended the event.

The committee planned the tea over many months, and they decided that this year the theme of the event would be the gifts given in honor of Jesus’ birthday. 

As has become a tradition for the Christmas Tea, a holiday-themed children’s story was read as a focal point of the evening. This year, the story The Sparkle Box written by Jill Hardie was read by Lily Shadle to a children who came up on stage during the event. Lily said “I really enjoy reading to the kids, giving them the opportunity to get on stage, and allowing them to feel special, even if it's only for a few minutes.
