Jackson Central UMW holds Yuletide tea


Jackson Central’s United Methodist Women hosted its 2008 Yuletide Tea recently.

“This year’s tea showcased Central’s young talent,” said Cozetta Buckley, vice president of UMW. “In addition, we held a fashion show to entertain the audience.”

Representatives from the entire church participated in the Yuletide celebration. The Rev. Henry C. Clay, Jr. offered a prayer that reminded participants that the reason for the season is Jesus. Krystal Jackson, vocalist, serenaded the audience with a medley of Christmas classics, accompanied by Angela Riley, pianist, and the Wind Ensemble directed by Kermit Holly. Dalron Robertson, pianist, rendered a musical selection, the liturgical dancers performed a dance routine. Carla Allen coordinated the fashion show.

The young adults served an assortment of Christmas sandwiches, savory tarts, cookies, petit fours and spiced tea and punch.

The Rev. Stephen T. Cook, pastor, gave the closing remarks and the benediction for the approximately 100 people who attended.
