You are invited to be a hostess for the “Visions of Christmas” Outreach dinner for women on December 12th. Will you join us in praying that all of the women who come will anticipate something special and leave with a full heart of seeing Jesus and His relevance in their lives. We are so thankful for your willingness to decorate and host a table! Whether you decide to decorate in a style that is traditional, elaborate, casual or whimsical, the mix of textures, colors and atmosphere makes this a spectacular evening.
Being a hostess at Visions of Christmas is a MINISTRY. An opportunity to impact and serve the women of South and their guests! I would like to thank you in advance for being a vital part of this outreach evening. We hope you will remember that this night will be focused on reaching our friends and neighbors for Jesus --- please pray about including someone who needs to hear this good news. God can use you to make a wonderful night with friends a life changing night for a friend. We encourage you not to miss this opportunity to be intentional in inviting an unsaved friend.
Below are the details:
1. Plan to decorate and set your table of eight. This would include dishes, silverware, napkins, coffee cup and glasses/goblets for water and a center piece. Many hostesses bring a small gift (chocolate, ornament etc.- the dollar store is a great place to get something) for each of the guests to take home with them. If you are using candles they MUST be protected by hurricane covers or be in a glass container that comes above the top of the flame. This is a fire code issue.
2 The tables are 60" round and seat 8. You will need a round table cloth that is either 70" or 90". You may also use two rectangular long table clothes and "x" them across the table. We have a limited number of white 70" round table clothes you may borrow.
3. The meal will be brought by our servers to each person at your table on a clear plate which can be placed right on top of your decorative plates. Do not put decorations in the water goblets as they will be pre-filled.
4. You can set-up beginning on Monday, December 11th from 4:30 - 8:00 p.m. Or Tuesday, December 12th from 11:30 am - 4:30 pm. Please don’t wait until the last minute!!! Tables must completely finished by 5:30 pm.
IMPORTANT*** If you would like to reserve seats at your table for the guests you invite you may pre-purchase the tickets before they go on sale to everyone else. Tickets must be reserved and paid for no later than November 5th or they will become available for open seating and you will not be able to add anyone to your table. Please indicate below if you would like to reserve seats and remember to include yourself in the count! If you have additional questions or need to update your information contact Ellen Smith at 517-582-7859.
