Kitchenettes' Easter Tea

Time for Tea
A celebration of 2 generations...
A day to be remembered...
Memories to be treasured...

The Easter Tea for our Prime Time Ladies
was absolutely magnificent!
We had 24 ladies who participated!!!!
It was truly one of the best things I have ever been

a part of and I am completely overwhelmed with
how God's presence was so evident!

The girls blessed these women beyond measure
and something was ignited between these
two generations that will last a life time.
I watched in awe as the Kitchenettes served and
gave of themselves in the most loving way.
They truly pleased God as they honored our
senior generation of ladies!

We enjoyed a sumptuous feast of treats
that each one of the girls home made.

CONCETTA'S RECIPES

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.
