Beautifully simple night

East Maryville Baptist hosts ‘A Festival of Tables’

The Women’s Enrichment Ministry of East Maryville Baptist Church held a special holiday event on Nov. 18 for the women of the church and the community. For the annual Festival of Tables, committee members transformed the church into an elegant seasonal scene, then enjoyed a meal catered by the men of the church.

The evening concluded with an address by author Nancy Twigg, who shared her “Seven Secrets to a Simpler Christmas Season.” The stress of the holiday season can cloud the joy of celebrating with friends and family, they say. Festival of Tables organizers hope putting the simple joys back in Christmas for the evening served as a reminder to enjoy each day and not feel angry and overwhelmed.
