Tea for missions

Broadway Methodist women step back to Victorian era

The United Methodist Women of Broadway United Methodist Church decided to step back in time to help raise money for their mission projects.

An old-fashion Victorian Christmas Tea was held at the church on Saturday, Nov. 14. The tea was hosted by the United Methodist Church Women, with some “serving” assistance from the United Methodist Men.

Holiday fashions were presented by Judy Gardner of The Silk Purse Boutique in Knoxville. The food was prepared by the United Methodist Women.

As an added attraction, the members of the United Methodist Men served the ladies at the tea. For their efforts, they collected tips for their mission projects and scholarship funds.

The Victorian Christmas Tea was co-chaired by Martha McFarland and Pat Matthews. The project raised more than $1,900 for the United Methodist Women mission projects and an additional $300 in “tips” for the United Methodist Men.
