The Ladies’ Harvest Tea at Union Church has been an annual all-church event for ten years, traditionally held on the first Saturday in October, and run entirely by volunteers!  The gentlemen of our church served as tea butlers for more than 100 guests, seated at elegant tables set by the women of our church (using beautiful china, silverware, and table linens brought from their homes).  

This year’s Harvest Tea will be held virtually, but will still feature music, a message from a speaker, fellowship, food and fun - - with tea participants dressing up and joining from their homes via Zoom, nibbling on finger sandwiches, scones and sweets prepared in their own home kitchens.   

The Harvest Tea 2020 will be a wonderful Zoom event - - but the things I will miss the most are:

  1. I will miss our wonderful Harvest Tea Butlers!  The men were the “heart” of the event, adding a touch of elegance and pampering as they served each table with great style and warm smiles.

  2. I will miss our Tea Hostesses who spent so much time and energy every year setting beautiful tables for our tea guests. 

  3. I will miss setting the Little Girls’ Tea Table - which seated young ladies ranging in age from 4 to 12 years.  That table was the most fun to set, with special party favors and “goodie bags” with sweets and toys.  What fun it was to watch the little ones enjoying a real High Tea at their own special table.

The 2020 Ladies Harvest Tea will be different this year, but still an outreach event - - an opportunity to share a very special Union Church fall celebration with new faces.  Please pray about who God wants you to invite to join us at the Zoom Harvest Tea on Saturday, October 3rd, 2pm.
