Teapot Bouquets For Shut-ins

Moundville UMC and Briggsville UMC have a women's group called Church Chix. We meet monthly for breakfast (provided by the ladies of the host church). It's a time of fellowship sharing both laughter and tears, meditation on God's word and prayer. We also take outings together to plays, movies, etc. Some of our most recent mission work included collecting food during Advent for the local food pantry and mittens for the local elementary school. At our January gathering we took a collection of teapots left from a church catering event and filled them with flowers and candy to be delivered to shut-ins for Valentine's Day. Pastor Jim Cotter wrote a responsive reading used during the Sunday worship service to dedicate the teapots:

Prayers that these teapots, along with a visit, will brighten those who receive them. Submitted by Linda Krueger
