The Kitchenettes were able to put into practical practice all they have been learning in pursuing the art of hospitality. During our September meeting the girls were able to be a big part of our church's anniversary services ~ known as Cumbre ~ or a "high family meeting". Many other churches up and down the east coast, throughout the nation and overseas that we are in relationship with come to Florida for a family of God celebration. The body of Christ at it's best!
Our church is known for hospitality - a warm outpouring of love - a welcoming spirit - a servant's heart and tables upon tables of sumptuous food spread out to feast upon and continue family fellowship. I truly believe that one of the greatest way to show someone that you care deeply for them is to create a beautiful atmosphere in which to share a delicious meal! To FEED is to LOVE!
We had 4 nights of outstanding affairs - and the theme this year was a "Florida Seascape". The room was decorated to give you the feel of elegant ocean-side dining. The girls created candle towers that were incorporated into the table centerpieces. They were glass cylinders with layers of sand, iridescent stones, sea grass, and a variety of shells. Each tower was topped with a tea light candle. They were magnificent!
The girls were also instrumental in stacking over 500 plates sandwiched with napkins! This task alone made the load so much lighter for many others involved in preparing for Cumbre.
We topped off the day with making adorable clam shells cookies to go along with our seaside theme!
Our anniversary services were titled "NEXT" representing the next generation stepping up and into their full potential in God. This group of girls is such an excellent example - true servants with hearts to love and to give to people. They are a force that the Lord will use mightily!

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
